    In which mythology are you asking. The answer will vary from culture to culture. A television programme is merely entertainment and cannot be taken as an accurate representation of any one particular mythology.

1 Answer 1


In certain Christian traditions, holy water is a mixture of salt and water that has been blessed by a priest. Witches, vampires, and other nasty evil creatures were considered violently allergic to holy water. In the middle ages, due to the demand, there was even a delivery service for holy water in cities, like the milkman in the 20th century.
