This book has been a real treat to read each month from what veggies & fruits are in season, recipes, meditation, healing remedies and so on, all accompanied by a family tale. Even though I am not of the witchy way, I still came away with great new knowledge that I can then share! All you need is an open mind, accompanied with the desire to want to know a culture & way of life.

The American I am, being able to hear the English accents just made reading this that much more enjoyable(even when conv

This book spans the seasons and is rich with information on how to get the most from everyday. With correspondences and references to recipes and practical magic, this book is a boon for all those who practice a more traditional life. What seems mundane can often be a ritual. Every stitch in a sampler a spell...every ingredient in a weeknight dinner a way to say I love you...everything has meaning and Mandy Mitchell does a great job of showing you how to look at your world just a little bit diff ...more

A bit chatty in tone, but this would be a great started guide for many new witches.

This has been my favorite of the witchy books. Recipes for the whole year AND it made a point not to focus on wicca as the end-all be-all of witchcraft. Kudos, book. I liked you.

Hedge Witch Book of Days
Plot: Month by month this book you how to incorporate witchcraft into your day to day life.
My Thoughts: Even though this book wasn’t what I expected and I felt like it strayed just a little bit too far into the aspect of how to use incorporate witchcraft into activities with children -and I have none so I really didn’t find this useful and a little unnecessary (but just my opinion It did have some good tips in it. And it did have a cozy, warm, feeling about it. I’ll share

This was a nice reference book, when looking for ideas for ritual or cooking. The simple, one word description of each month, as well as the days that could be honored were also well thought out. Some of the lore I was a bit iffy on, and the rituals and recipes didn't all work for me, but I was able to be creative with what I had. The way is was laid out was also very helpful, focusing on each month and not the seasons or the high days.
All around, a decent book.

Absolutely lovely! The recipes are good and I really enjoyed Mitchell's writing style. Very down to earth with rituals I can actually see myself doing. It is everything I wished the 'Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials' series would be. Hoping Mitchell will write more books in the future; I'd happily read along. ...more

I’m not quite sure what I was hoping for, but this book didn’t have it for sure. Too simplistic for me, too wishy-washy and boring.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It has given me some excellent tips on things I can easily do about the house and garden.

Very handy book for modern day Wicca practitioners. Some discrepancies in colors and herbs for each month, but as to be expected from a neopagan religion.

I'm taking the author's advice after having read the introduction I skipped to the season we are entering and plan to return to address each upcoming season. I like a good reference book. ...more

As per the guidelines, I won this book through a Facebook giveaway but I'm not obligated to review (good or bad) the copy. I'm just obligated to state that I didn't pay for the book when I review it.

For a hedge book, it's filled with a few interesting tidbits and ideas. There isn't a bog down of charts and lists, rituals, and other items you typically see in metaphysical books. Each section, for each month, does start off with the typical association chart though. My only personal twitch from re
