Hi everyone! My name is Julia and I’m just finally immersing myself fully in the craft, though I’ve been fascinated since I was a child. I’ve found myself incredibly drawn to herbal magic, and would love some ideas of where I can research further! The only store in my town has no books on the topic and I am sadly allergic to sage
A very warm welcome to you, @julia1 !
And hooray for herbal magic! I was also introduced to the craft through herbalism and plant magic- my mother is a very talented gardener! From there I began to use the plants and herbs in cooking magic, and now consider myself to be both a Green and Kitchen Witch Herbalism and green magick are wonderful aspects of the craft, and are a great place for beginners to get started!
A great place to begin learning is The Green Witch: Herbal Witchcraft Course here on Spells8.
A few other resources for you to check out:
- Self-care: Herbs for Anxiety
- Herbs: Treasures in Plain Sight
- Fighting and Preventing Illness: Herbs and Plants for Immunity
- Top Ten Herbs Discussion
I also follow The Green Witch on YouTube- she does both plant and kitchen magic, and her videos are so relaxing to watch!
Feel free to reach out here in the forums at any time with questions, thoughts, or experiences you’d like to share- we are all happy to help and learn as we grow together!
You are very welcome here, Julia! Blessed Be!
