Herbal Magic: A Handbook of Natural Spells, Charms, and Potions

Aurora Kane. Wellfleet, $19.99 trade paper (208p) ISBN 978-1-57715-232-3
Witch and herbalist Kane (Moon Magic) presents an attractive illustrated guide to the physical and spiritual uses for herbs, flowers, and plants geared toward “season[ing] your life with purpose and intention.” Kane describes the historical importance of the spice trade, perceived magical attributes of flowers, and the meanings behind “magic codes” like “eye of newt” and “tongue of dog.” Overviews of spiritual concepts—such as deities, colors, crystals, moon phases, and the zodiac—provide context for the instructions on how to use plants and their spiritual associations for “the most powerful magic.” Following the spiritual summary is an extensive illustrated encyclopedia of herbs, flowers, and plants, including their holistic correspondences. Kane’s grimoire of spells, recipes, and rituals includes calm- and dream-inducing teas, herbal bouquets and affirmations for self-love, and beverages meant to attract success. References and call-outs to additional resources throughout offer plenty of options for those interested in further study. Kane’s impressive guide will appeal to newcomers and seasoned herbalists alike. (June)
