Charm vials are Central and South American amulets that contain a variety of plant materials and symbolic objects. As such they are the equivalent of Latin American package amulets and African-American bottle spells and conjure bags or mojo hands. In Peru, larger containers filled with similar lucky charms are placed on altars; they are known as charm flasks. Charm vials are often sold with printed descriptions of their contents, none of which are completely accurate.
