The Witching Herbs Book - Signed Copy
My book, The Witching Herbs, discusses the growing, cultivating, harvesting, and uses of 13 herbs traditionally used in witchcraft. It combines my 35 years of gardening and decades of magical practice in a very organized, useful form. I give in-depth information based on experience about germinating, growing, cultivating, and harvesting poppy, clary sage, yarrow, rue, hyssop, vervain, mugwort, wormwood, thornapple, wild tobacco, henbane, belladonna, and mandrake. I teach how to look at a plant's material form in order to understand its magical properties and possibilities based on the alchemical dictum "as above, so below; as below, so above." I discuss the magical implications of annuals, biennials, and perennials in general so that you can apply that knowledge to plants other than those in the book. There are formulas and projects as well. Chapters go from the easy-to-grow poppy to the notoriously difficult mandrake, with more detail than found elsewhere of exactly how to succeed with these plants of the witch's garden. Techniques like germination, drying, curing, and making oils and tinctures are covered. Not only did I write this book, I did the illustrations (except the cover). This is a signed copy, and I can sign it to an individual if you give me the name; just send it to me after checkout by choosing the Contact page to let me know. I will send it media mail in the US. Unfortunately, the cost of shipping this book internationally is absurd--$25 just to the UK--so I am not offering that option.
