Immediate lessons that we can take from herbs are to put down roots, turn toward the light, create what we need to survive, and to give back to those around us. We are in a symbiotic relationship with the denizens of flora upon the earth. In magick, we work together to bring about change.

This is definitely one of the best and most useful craft-related books I've picked up thus far, and I really recommend it to anyone interested in green and/or kitchen witchcraft! It details pretty heavily on

I believe that there is magic in affirmations. Just as there is magic in the names of herbs.

That's right this is another witchy book about herbs so get ready to dive in.

I've been lightly dabbling in witchcraft for a few years and I'm settling on being a green witch/herb witch. I love growing things and I like herbs. Healing people and taking care of them is such a joy for me. The healthcare field gives me such a rush and I genuinely enjoy interacting with people and caring for them on a day to d

If you're looking for a great book full of information on herbs, their association and ways to incorporate them into your everyday life, this is it.
I really enjoyed the detail and description of each herb and it's use. I enjoyed the illustrations shown, but do wish there were a color or photograph version as it would be more helpful to those of us who are trying to identify herbs out in the world and are still learning.
But all in all, I really enjoyed this book.

This is a delightful book on herbs’ use in modern witchcraft! Easy to read, thorough, and clear, this book left me with a deeper understanding of the history of herbs in witchcraft as well as how they’re continued to be used today by modern witches. Also, the cover is absolutely beautiful, and that certainly helps to heighten the overall visual appeal of the book for those who are drawn to covers! I would recommend this to anyone who’s interested in the history of witchcraft or the mo

I was thrilled to include "The Modern Witchcraft Guide to Magickal Herbs", by Judy Ann Nock into my ever growing collection of this series.
In the 240 wonderfully crafted pages you will find not only about the herbs themselves and their many uses, but also the history behind them.
The author includes everything you'll need to know about setting up a magickal herb garden, from the soil to seeding to planting.
The common magickal herb section was very useful in sorting out what herbs should be u

Today I'm reviewing The Modern Witchcraft Guide to Magickal Herbs - Your Complete Guide to the Hidden Powers of Herbs by Judy Ann Nock.

Generally I like to start out with a disclaimer. I am identify as a magical Buddhist. I look for the connection between magic and science without the need to search for a creator. I believe in spiritually and holistic wellness. I find that we can heal the world if we just sit down and and listen to the breath. I believe that magic, science and nutritional well be

I've been a witch for a little over a year, and I've been working with herbs for almost that entire time, although I still feel like a beginner because there's so much to learn. My two bookshelf staples are Scott Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs and Paul Beyerl's Master Book of Herbalism. I've not seen any need to expand my selections before now, but this cover is so LOVELY and also I JUST LOVE HERBS. (I hope they remember this when my not-so-green thumb tries some gardening next year. ...more

Thank you to the publisher and to Net Galley for the opportunity.
My review opinion is my own. I highly recommend this book.

This is a must read for all who practice their magic with herbs and all who want to learn more about herbal use, the history of and the magical properties of herbs. I found this extraordinarily helpful in my personal limited knowledge of basic herb use. This will expand your education for witches and non witches alike.

The Modern Witchcraft Guide to Magickal Herbs is a great addition to one’s reference library. A large part of the book includes information on 100 herbs including a short history, their growing preferences, what remedies they are good for, and their magickal properties. It is a great introduction to the herbs allowing you to see which ones you would like to explore more via other books or courses.

There are also a lot of spells and charms included. Some of the chapters include; Botanicals and Bea

Let me start by saying I've never read a book about herbs and didn't know how this was going to go. I am in love, love, love with this book. Not only does it give you a matter of fact approach, but it breaks everything down into useful tidbits. So if you're reading about a specific herb it breaks down its history, the characteristics of it and then its magickal properties. The author gives you just the right amount of information without it being overwhelming which is a beautiful thing. She give ...more

This is recommended to those who have an interest in Kitchen/green witchcraft. I am not a practitioner, but I do enjoy reading and learning about the craft. This book is full of information on herbs, their association and ways to incorporate them into everyday life. Focusing on the history of herbalism, the herbs themselves and rituals and spells this is an excellent source for anyone discovering herbs for the first time.

Herbs have long been used to perform "magic". From chewing mint leaves for stomach ache to chamomile to calm, our mothers and grandmothers did not have access to drug stores so they used what was available and learned from their mothers and grandmothers how to keep their family healthy and happy. I had never seen a book focused on how modern witchcraft utilizes herbs in their craft so this was a look into another use for my home grown herbs. This book will stay in my kitchen while I experiment a ...more

Definitely not a 'read cover to cover' book. It is a great reference for those wanting to learn more about herbs and their uses. Its organized extremely well for those needing quick reference. I loved the bit of history in the beginning as it made it more welcoming and informative. I would have preferred more images or representations of the herbs to help with identification but overall a solid work. ...more

Lovely resource not just on the witchy ways of herbs, but on the history, medicinal and culinary uses, and growing/harvesting as well. Nock is a good writer and infuses this book with lovely descriptions and sentiments, as well as a handful of ideas for rituals, potions and magical objects.
