Abstract
In the first part of the research we aimed to define the enchantment, to highlight the most important plants and objects that have magical functions and what role and power the enchanters have. Next, we tried to emphasize the magical role of water, its specific functions in the practice of enchantment, which can lead to a deeper understanding of this ritual “practiced” even today.

Keywords
enchantment, enchanters, plants, objects, water
