Historically, the witch likely got a bit of an undue bad reputation. Witches, in ancient days, were largely healers. They knew how to whip up natural remedies from herbs and plants. Witches did not use these potions necessarily to cast spells mind you, but they were used in order to aid the sick and otherwise afflicted. Witches were also known to aid women during childbirth. When Christianity spread across Europe, the male hierarchy was very nervous about these powerful women with medicinal qualities and tarnished their reputations with fear tactics and threats toward those that visited them. Before long, witches were driven to the dark corners of society and a certain degree of secrecy, sorcery and mysticism eventually became associated with them.
