The Straits Times, an English-language newspaper in Singapore, is reporting that a 24-year-old maid there has been charged with putting her menstrual blood in her boss’s coffee.
The crime reportedly took place last August at his apartment in Choa Chu Kang, a town in west Singapore, according to Channel News Asia, an English language news outlet based in Singapore.
The maid, who goes by the name Jumiah, had been an employee of the 38-year-old man for approximately one year, Asia One reports.
While it may seem off-putting to many, the use of menstrual blood is common in folk magic in some cultures, according to Catherine Yronwode, co-owner of Lucky Mojo Curio Company and the author of “Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure.”
