I think you'd be better off searching for Voodoo or European stuff. Just don't think everything as a literal sense. Some people do seem to go crazy researching this stuff thinking it is real. Reminds me of those crazy teen girl cliques that go looking for love potions or crap that make them haze each other and think they are gonna marry a perfect man or something ;;>_>.
At some point, I think you'd be better off searching google.
