Enter the world of green witchcraft
with a welcoming guide to natural spells and rituals
Find out what words like “magic” and “energy” really mean to witches, and some of the common misconceptions about people who practice magic.
Creating a green space
Treat your home as a natural sanctuary and discover how to arrange your personal space to become a source of power, harmony, and magical energy.
Anyone can be a witch
Learn to infuse magic into your life no matter who you are or where you live. Even tiny rituals like carrying your favorite crystal in your pocket can help you stay connected to your craft.
Harness the Earth’s power with:
Flowers, like witches, have their own distinct talents and personalities. Even though some do grow on plants, herbs, or trees, the flowers themselves have a chemistry and magic all their own.
Discover the spiritual properties of 15 different flowers, then apply them to your craft!
For example, learn how to use lavender, jasmine, and chamomile to create a Divination Dream Pillow.
Dream pillows are a type of magic that can heighten your dream-state intuition, encourage you to dream of certain things, and make sure you’re able to recall more of your dreams the next day
Plants and herbs
Witches have been harnessing the power of plants for magic and medicine since ancient times. With their roots firmly planted in the earth and their leaves reaching up to the heavens, plants connect us to both the physical and spiritual worlds.
Explore popular witchy plants like sage and eye of newt, then use them to harness your magic with spells like a Cimaruta Charm Bag.
The Cimaruta (Chee-mah-roo-tah) is an Italian folk charm that’s worn as jewelry or hung in the home to offer protection against the evil eye. This charm bag includes dried rue and protective talismans. Given that its namesake, Saturn, is the planet of boundaries, this protection charm is best made on a Saturday night in your own kitchen, which is a place of power in Italian folk magic.
Trees are vital to our survival and our spiritual development. With life spans in the thousands of years, these ancient ancestors impart on us the wisdom of the ages.
From Ash to Dragon’s Blood, explore the botanical names and magical uses of different woods, and put the magic into practice by adding maple syrup to your spells, or making your own Sacred Tree Incense.
Mixing your own incense blends is a creative and rewarding way to work with magical trees and herbs. It’s a very intuitive process, and the exact quantities of each item will depend on what you like or need more of in your life.
Stones and crystals
Stones, crystals, and rocks are strong, glittering pieces of earth magic that can put you in touch with the ancient wisdom of the planet.
Learn their names, mineral composition, element, chakra, astrological sign, and different ways to use them—like an Aquamarine Crystal Elixir. This elixir can be added to beverages, baths, and meals whenever you want to harness magical mermaid energy.
Aquamarine is great for a starter elixir because it’s safe, clean, and already so aligned with water. Since it’s a crystal of beauty, the aquamarine elixir can be added to perfume or a face mist like the one made from red clover in chapter 4.
