Plant Magic for the Beginner Witch An Herbalist's Guide to Heal, Protect and Manifest
Ally uses her background in herbalism to create a practical guide for busy people who are still interested in a daily magic practice. Using a combination of herbalism and mindfulness, she teaches you how to practice radical self-love by manifesting your best and most positive intentions of love, healing, protection and prosperity. Witchcraft is trendy—from tarot decks at Urban Outfitters to spell books being featured at major retailers—and Ally makes it more accessible than ever.
Each chapter covers one of those four intentions, with information about the best herbs to use as well as projects focused on rituals and DIY crafts to call the intentions into your life. Whether you want to ward your house by making a wreath of protective herbs, make an herbal tea to open your heart to new love, or an amulet to draw in abundance, Ally shows you that incorporating ritual into your everyday doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated—it’s just about focusing your energy.
This book will have 50 projects and 50 full-color photographs.
