Green Witch Magick: Essential Plants and Crafty Spellwork for a Witch’s Cupboard

We rated this book:


Herbalist and green witch Susan Ilka Tuttle invites the reader to acknowledge, appreciate, and experience the treasures to be found in the greenery around us. In this bewitchingly illustrated book, more than a dozen greenery herbs are artfully photographed, with descriptions of their historical background along with their magical powers and medicinal uses.

Greenery such as lavender, basil, pine needles, dandelions, mugwort, mint, rosemary, dandelion, plantain, clover, rose, apple, and yarrow are considered essential plants for a witch’s cupboard. Here, the oft maligned dandelion, the bane of the perfect lawn and oft considered the indestructible weed, is considered to be the perfect food. Each plant has a long list of associated projects, which may describe tea brews; formulating remedies such as tinctures, salves, ointments, shampoos; or edible recipes for pestos, butters, and other products.

There are much repeated explanations about the power of magic as the potential within oneself to work with nature to produce positive change both within and outside the self. Think of green witches as guardians of nature, who have a reverence for the environment with the talent to discern the magical and medicinal attributes of the foraged plants. This is a book to delight plant lovers.
