    Congratulations, you have proven that I do not have extensive knowledge of Slavic folklore, something I did not claim . Also I went by what you have written yourself in this tread and therefore wrongly thought it was a similar creature. However your question is not the topic of this tread. And I hereby request that people stay on topic

    Now I do respect if you do not want to disclose any family secrets/traditions about the subject raised in the OP. However that also makes your statements in relational to the topic of this tread a bit difficult to verify. And I hope you can understand that.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    The best method to find out is to try them out. Afterwards

    a)you can see they work, so you have proof

    B) they didn't work, which can mean anything. They are not magic, you did something wrong, something is missing etc.
