I really enjoyed this one and will definitely be rereading in the future! I bookmarked a ton of things to go back to. Its full of spells, rituals and practical info and advice. I've already done one of the rituals and plan on going back to do more. Really looking forward to "banishing fear of success" which is a topic I have never seen another book bring up before. Also some of the things surrounding guilt were helpful.

The part that made the biggest impression and that I am trying to implement

I was about to give this book two stars because I was not really enjoying it all the way through. I was liking what the author was talking about when it came to self care but the rituals were a but repetitive and not something that I would see myself doing - and that was what took up a majority of the book. I wasn’t feeling it but I told myself to push through and finish it on the flight - and I am so glad I did. It vastly improved towards the latter half of the book.

This book splits itself int

Today I'm reviewing The Witch's Book of Self Care - Magical Ways to Pamper, Soothe, and Care for Your Body and Spirit.

Generally I like to start out with a disclaimer. I am an atheist witch. I look for the connection between magic and science without the need for a deity. I receive no compensation for these reviews and all my links are standard Amazon links and not affiliate links. I am a practicing photo reader and have spent the last 15 years honing my craft. I offer personal readings by reques

The Witch's Book of Self-Care is a wonderful, helpful read by a thoughtful and honest author. I very much enjoyed Murphy-Hiscock's voice and style and will look for more of her works.

She approaches self-care from a refreshingly frank viewpoint, and cuts down negative misconceptions right from the beginning. It's not about "eating chocolates on the couch", it's about balancing your concrete, practical responsibilities with your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. She makes a wonderful point

I really enjoyed this book! My friend gave it to me as a gift, and I was so happy because I wanted to read it for a while.

This book has a lot of really great witchy, self-care ideas! And I love that about it! It's totally in line with how I already live my life, and I'm so grateful to have on my shelf. It's the kind of book, if you enjoy it, you'll want to own it, because it makes a better reference book than a reading book. (You'll want to be able to pull it off your shelf at anytime so you can

"You define what success is. If you deal with a chronic illness, a success can be 'I got out of bed' or 'I ate breakfast'...The key is that you have to consider it a success within the context of the kind of day you had."

The review originally appeared on The Magical Buffet website on 02/21/2019.

Here in New York we’re still in the cold, dark, grip of winter. As I type this, I’m waiting to see what happens with the next winter storm rolling through. Piled under blankets while listening to the fireplace makes me feel this is the perfect time to share my review of “The Witch’s Book of Self-Care: Magical Ways to Pamper, Soothe, and Care for Your Body and Spirit” by Arin Murphy-Hiscock.

This is beautiful and creates an amazing harmony with the book "Basic Witches" too. Adding Rituals or things that make you calm in your everyday life, is essential to maintaining great social-emotional balance/health. Once you have found that balance, it gets a lot easier to react diplomatically and progressively with the rest of the world. This book is a beautiful purposeful tool, towards just that.

Un poquito de todo, un mucho de darse cuenta que hay muchas maneras de quererse una misma. Sin entrar en autoayuda ni pamplinas de ser positiva hasta puntos tóxicos. He tomado muchos apuntes, subrayado y marcado muchas cosas de este libro y ya entra en la categoría de esos que tengo "a mano". Manda cojones que tengan que venir desconocidos a decirte "así es como ves lo mucho que eres capaz" y una misma no sepa cómo...

What a fantastic little cache of information. It’s not like a lot of the generic beginner books floating around- it’s really got some great meat for beginners and seasoned folk, alike. I loved it. Super relevant, covering all relevant self-care areas, but not too extra. Just right. Going to recommend it to everyone I know.

Another excellent volume by Murphy-Hiscock with a great deal of practical, immediately useful ideas. It did end quite abruptly, though, leaving things feeling unfinished. There should have been an afterword, even a brief one.

Loved this book! Can't wait to try some of the bath bomb recipes. I wish there had been some kind of conclusion. I feel like the book ended rather abruptly.
