Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive look at how plants and herbs, those found in the garden as well as those purchased in shops, can be used in a wide range of ways to enhance your life. Rachel Patterson shares her ideas for growing, harvesting and storing herbs, working with plant spirits and energies, as well as ways of crafting with flowers and herbs. The bulk of the book is made up of information about each individual herb or plant and includes general information for each plus the magical properties. In some cases there are spells, incense mixes or even teas that can be made from the herb or plant. There are also correspondence lists for the plants in the book.

This is not a medicinal guide, not a how to grow book but rather a wonderful resource in which the author shares her love of herbs and plants and the magical uses that they can be put to. A must for the bookshelf of every witch, would be witch as well as anyone who loves plants and herbs.

Traditional witches didn’t have temples and the nearest they ever got to an established meeting place was a remote grove in a wood or a cunningly concealed cave – most of the time their witchcraft was practiced in the privacy of their own kitchens. If this seems rather mundane, then we need to remind ourselves that the hearth fire is one of the most sacred elements of old witchcraft; and this is what Rachel ‘Tansy’ Pattersen harnesses in her series of ‘kitchen witch’ books. Her first book ... Pagan Portals: Kitchen Witchcraft is also written in an informal, chatty style that invites the reader to: “Pull up a chair, have a cup of tea, sit back and take a glimpse into the world of Kitchen Witchcraft”, this slim volume gives a valuable insight into the secret world of a witch’s kitchen: An excellent introduction for those who interested in following the Path of the old ‘parish pump’ style of witchcraft.

I first came across Rachel's books at the Kitchen Witch School, and bought my first book through Amazon, Kitchen Witchcraft. I really like the way Rachel writes, she is very informative, but also makes the books understandable, plus she makes me titter at some of the things she says. I next purchased, Moon Magic, also very good. I have bought this latest book from Rachel's website, along with some herb oracle cards, and true to form, it is another five stars from me for 'World of magical plants & herbs'.

This isn't a medical herbal or a 'how to grow herbs' book. It is an easily accessible guide to the energy and magick of the old ways employed by cunning folk and the village wise women , often referred to as Witches. A Kitchen Witch will find this an invaluable quick reference to herbs, their magickal properties and correspondences.

Written in Rachel Patterson's friendly and conversational style There are many ideas on how to use herbs around the home harnessing plant spirit energies, including tips on growing, harvesting and storing them, and using them in meditation. My favourite craft idea being the Lavender pentacle. The directory of herbs isn't comprehensive,, but most the items listed are easily grown, or acquired in a supermarket or online shop and are those you would probably the ones you would want to know about as a hearth and home focused Kitchen Witch.

I found the sections at the end containing the correspondence lists really useful as a cross reference to identifying the most useful herb for a given situation. It will be a well used reference in my kitchen.

Another well written and delightful book from Rachel Patterson!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading it - it is packed full of a ton of information on herbs and plants and all in one place! It is nice to have a modern, up-to-date book to look up all my herbs and plants in! I loved the little funny comments she adds - makes you giggle and makes the book more welcoming and less intense - a very enjoyable read!

There is a lot of information packed into this one book - everything from plant energies, to how to grow them, store them etc and so much more. Every correspondence a witch could need is in here too along with how to make or craft certain herbal items too!

My one quibble is that there are no illustrations of the plants, herbs etc but after all is said and done it is still a wonderful and very handy book!

Very happy to give this a 5 star rating!

Rachel's personal, 'easy to relate to' style of writing is comforting and refreshing. She manages to convey her wisdom with clarity and some lovely bits of humour which all makes you feel relaxed about using herbs for good use on a daily basis. Anyone would be able to access the uses of herbs through this book and Rachel considers modern day living too but manages to make you feel you are connecting to the ancient world of natural medicine. Lovely to read, and a brilliant practical source of reference which deserves a good place on your kitchen book shelf.
