Book Review: Kitchen Witchcraft

Book found here.




Kitchen Witchcraft by Rachel Patterson is a hands on guide to the magical side of witchcraft around the home. Full of ideas and recipes to spice up your home life, this easy to follow book is a gem and a must have for any kitchen or cottage witch. Rachel uses ingredients that you will sure to have in your kitchen cabinet.

In the book, there are chapters on the seasons and elements that will help you connect with the ever changing cycles of life. There are crafts and spells for just about everything. I especially love the Hot Foot Powder recipe. I have everything needed for it right at my fingertips.

There are no invocations or ritual magic in Kitchen Witchcraft. It is non-religious and full of practical magic. The spells and recipes are easy to adjust and Rachel gives plenty of correspondences from herbs, to colors and candle magic. Me being the odd number loving person that I am, will have to adjust a few of the spells calling for an even number of ingredients. I'm sure that will not be a problem.

I have a feeling I will be referring to Kitchen Witchcraft quite often. A big thumbs up to Rachel Patterson on this one!
