Powers and Abilities
Giles once described the Ritual of Restoration as an extremely potent spell that first required the caster to possess an extensive knowledge of magic that surpassed even that of a Watcher's, and if an untrained witch were to attempt it, there was a possibility of the spell opening a doorway in the witch's soul - one that she might never be able to close.
Given how the Elder Woman was able to successfully perform the ritual without letting it take over her (as it did with Willow), it is reasonable and logical to deduce that she was well-trained in the magical arts and had a highly extensive knowledge of witchcraft, though it was never specifically confirmed or revealed as to whether she was a witch.
