Coffin nails are widely known for their ability to add to the potency of your Magick, particularly curses and hexes.
They are also used in Wytch Bottles as a Banishing or Protection tool.
These nails are respectfully and ritually blessed and crafted at our Family Cemetery. The Graves date from the 1800's through the 2000's.
The nails are made from a square cut, iron nails which are then buried for several weeks until they have achieved that authentic rusty look. They can be used in many types of magical or ritual work.
The days of being able to obtain genuine coffin nails are sadly over.
Modern coffin manufacturing processes often do not use wood at all and they are generally constructed with glue, staples and joint fasteners.
If anyone tries to sell you 'genuine' coffin nails be very cautious of their claims.
