GREEK EVIL EYE
The Evil Eye curse is amongst a Greek superstition and is the oldest and most widely

To ward off this Evil Eye curse, several things can be done. You can wear a charm of the Evil Eye, hang it
in your car, home or office. Some pin them on their babies as well, to keep them safe from envy and harm.
People can sometimes be envious of someone and not always in a good way!!
The Blue in the Evil Eye (Baskania) is said to mirror back the thoughts that can bring envy or harm to
someone. And as it mirrors back these thoughts the person who was thinking them is the one whom the harm will
fall upon. As you see the Eye stares back at the world to ward off evil keeping you safe.
They say in Greece it is the woman/mother in the family who has the power/cure to remove such a
misfortune/jealousy/curse. This tradition is said to be passed down from mother to daughter in the family
and is taught on how to remove the Evil eye cast. Also a priest can remove this spell.
You see the Evil Eye is more than a good luck charm. It is a power to protect.
