This beautiful, insightful compendium from Wiccan High Priestess Silja is the ultimate guide to herbal magic.

Next, discover how to grow and store magical herbs, and the importance of the moon phases when planting and harvesting them. Chapter 4, The 52 Major Magical Herbs, lists these herbs and their uses in spells, rituals, alternative medicine and kitchen witchery, and includes the element they are associated with, what day or time is best for magic with them, and their associated deities, plus a simple spell for each herbs. This is followed by Other Foods and their Magical Uses, focusing on a variety of enchanted ingredients such as lemon, poppy seeds and flowers. The spells section, Chapter 6, presents more than 50 spells arranged by theme, from love and fertility to prosperity, moving home, finding a job, friendship, health, wisdom and more. Chapter 7, Magical Herbs Outside Magic: Kitchen Witchery, suggests how to add subtle, magical dimension to your cookery. Finally Silja explains how to go about writing your own herbal spells. You will also discover how to keep track of the spells you have performed and how to know if they have worked.
Lavishly illustrated by Michael A. Hill, The Green Wiccan Herbal is a wonderful source of natural witchery that you will refer to time and again.
