A witch’s guide to wildcraft
You don't need a lush garden to begin wildcrafting, you can find plenty of magickal herbs growing just outside your door. A Witch's Guide to Wildcraft explores more than thirty common plants, providing tips for identification, gathering, and cultivation as well as specific rituals and magical uses. You will also discover step-by-step instructions for dozens of hearth-and-home herb projects, including cleansers, powders, incense, talismans, sprays, jam, and much more.
The plants in this book are all native to North America and will lend sacred energy to spells and magical workings. Filled with history and lore, astrological correspondences, common and Latin names, and hands-on projects, this book helps you develop a closer relationship with the enchanted world around you and with your own spiritual self.
