Lancashire, England, is commemorating the anniversary of witch trials that took place in the town of Pendle 400 years ago ... by creating a new line of beauty products. Local perfumery Tibby Olivier made the products, which incorporate some of the ingredients supposedly used by witches. There's a Black Hat bath oil, something called "lavender wands," a sage-scented Black Cat Sage Soap, and, best of all, a body cream that comes inside a miniature cauldron.

The products go on sale on Halloween, because of course.
