The Znakhari (знахари in Russian) are practitioners of folk magic in Polish mythology and Slavic mythology who were healers, herbalists, midwives, and were known as wise women and cunning men. Znakharka is the feminine form, and znakhar is the masculine. The znakhari would detect poison, and interpret dreams to detect witchcraft and counteract the evil eye and baneful spells.
