Book Description

This book is essentially a Book of Shadows, a Kitchen Witch s Grimoire. It covers what it means to be a Witch, how a Witch works, what a Witch does and how a Witch celebrates the turning of the seasons. It is packed full of information about all sorts of subjects from a breakdown of rituals and magical tools to reading auras and rites of passage, along with meditations, recipes for oils, incenses and spells and a huge amount of crafts to make for each Sabbat. The information herein does not follow any strict tradition; it is a personal interpretation of witchcraft melding together different experiences. Magic and the Craft are fluid and flexible, it is ever changing and we are ever learning.

Product Description


Cat Treadwell - This is certainly a very friendly book, providing a helpful guide to Kitchen Witchery and for those stepping onto the path, bringing practical spirituality back into the home.

5.0 out of 5 stars so much info packed into one book 25 Jun. 2013
I almost wish it didn't say 'witchcraft' in the title. Why? well, it is one of the most comprehensive books on natural magick I have read and I am recommending it to shamans, energy workers, druids, people interested in magickal practices as well as Wiccans. I myself am a shaman and there is so much information that simply covers so much of natural magick. So, if you are into should read it. If you are interested in magick especially kitchen magick, then you should read it, whatever you label yourself!
It is written with humour and with a style that lends itself to sitting over a kitchen table with a cup of tea discussing herbs, moon cycles, spells, intents, and life with a good friend and confidant.
This lady knows her stuff and it shows. She doesn't preach. She just lives it! And by her gentle and honorable example, she teaches us so much more than a dogmatic or extreme person could.
I loved it and will refer to it a lot. very impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative book 1 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book on the strength of Pagan Portals - Kitchen Witchcraft: Crafts of a Kitchen Witch,I have to say it's a great book, very informative but leaves room for you to do your own research if you want to look deeper into a section,the exercises are good and again is written in a very friendly,fun, accessible way.
Very good for beginners and intermediates alike, one that I will keep going back to over and over again, has to be my new favourite book :) Looking forward to the next one

This is a friendly, fun and easy to read book. It contains lots of information for the budding Witch or for somone wanting to read another persons ideas on Rituals and Wiccan life. I really enjoyed reading it and will definately be buying more of Rachaels work. Definately worth buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Novices, be aware 11 Aug. 2013
By angela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book having read another of this lady's books and found that while it was interesting there were a lot of bits that were duplicated from 'Pagan Portals - Kitchen Witchcraft: Crafts of a Kitchen Witch' - so you don't really need both. As a novice to paganism I found this book went into a lot more depth than I was ready for. Probably a good read for the man or woman secure in their path who already has a decent amount of knowledge and experience already.
While not a bad book I found Crafts of a Kitchen Witch more accessible.

I love Rachel's writing style, for those of you 'new' to the path a brilliantly informative book on everything you need to know to make a start. For those who have been travelling this path for a while a confirmation and a tidy up of the knowledge you already have plus a few extras! All told openly as if by your favourite Aunt :)
More like this please!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for those who are just starting out on the path but also for those that have been practising for some time. I really like Rachel's style of writing, it's as if she is sitting opposite you chatting away. I enjoyed both of Rachel's books and looking forward to the next one. By Kayleigh Young
