2.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended for anyone with any experience 22 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Aimed at the novice witch, this book provides a great way of making you realise that not everything has to come from the expensive ‘witchy shops’. Furie gives an extensive list of spell ingredients, and an impressive number of spells, that can (nearly) all be gotten from the shelves of your local supermarket.

I did like the variety of spells he includes – he gives recipes for brews, oils, powders and foods as well as spells that use candle magic, charms and talismans.

I would have hoped for a broader discussion of morality in a book that does not proclaim itself to be based on any particular tradition, but really this is nothing that you wouldn’t find in quite a few other wiccan books. I would also have liked to see some better correspondence lists, and some medical sources for some of the recommendations in his healing chapter.

I’d recommend this book to the novice practitioner who may be looking for a way to broaden their sources of magical materials, and who may be looking for inspiration to build up their ‘witchy store cupboard’. More experienced practitioners will have read most of this already, and may become frustrated with Furie’s constant moral preaching.

Supermarket Magic. Creating Spells, Brews, Potions & Powders from Everyday Ingredients. Michael Furie
I've always had an interest in alternative healing, nature, pagan religions etc so am open minded about whether such things as magic and spells really can work. So many books though are written as though the reader already knows about ingredients and rituals. Not this one, so if like me you're an open minded but very amateur practitioner/reader this book is perfect.
Michael explains very clearly and easily how to set up things for the best chance of success. How to meditate, how to visualise what you want, how to be specific about what you hope to achieve. Add to that the easy way he shows how to source ingredients and you're away :) no eye of toad and bats ears here, no gathering drops of dew from under a fallow oak tree after a new moon, no wearing expensive robes and using specially cast pots on available from select expensive outlets...just simple easy to follow recipes and instructions. Magic for everyone interested and seeking to learn more but short on cash to spend on speciality items. The spells too are easily set out, simple steps to follow and eliminates the possibility of error. That's essential for success, it's no good setting a spell asking for your boss to give you a much needed raise, but mistaking a word or ingredient and turning him into a toad!!! (though maybe you want him turned into a toad? But this book won't tell you how to do it. It follows the "do no harm" principles of best magic.
Its a great read and clever source book for anyone open minded enough to want to learn more. It's 288 paperback pages, I don't have kindle info or price yet.
Stars: a really fun and interesting read - five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Book! 2 Jan 2014
By HPotter934 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just started reading this book and I can't put it down. I have a Wicca page on Facebook with 150 followers and I have suggested this as a fantastic to buy! If you like Scott Cunningham, like I do, you will LOVE this book. So simple, fun, and natural recipes for oils, brews, and powders. I am about to run to the supermarket right now so I can start making my own oils...I can't wait!

By Martha R Rice - Published on Amazon.com

This book is an easy read with lots of good practical ideas. I like the way it was organized. If there is any lacking in the book, I wish there was a discussion of why a particular herb was aligned with a particular characteristic.
