New Release: The Witching Herbs

Book Synopsis:

Harold Roth is a leading authority on
plants and herbal magic. The Witching
Herbs is an in-depth exploration of
13 essential plants and herbs most
closely associated with witchcraft—13
because it’s the witching number and
reflects the 13 months of the lunar
calendar. The plants are poppy, clary
sage, yarrow, rue, hyssop, vervain,
mugwort, wormwood, datura, wild
tobacco, henbane, belladonna, and

The Witching Herbs offers a vast
amount of esoteric information
that is not easily found elsewhere and will be greeted
enthusiastically by those who already have extensive
experience and libraries. However, because Roth writes
simply and clearly, this material will be accessible to all
readers. The Witching Herbs is unique in that it combines
mysticism with practical instructions for growing each plant,
based on Roth’s 30 years of gardening expertise. Each
chapter focuses on one plant and includes information on
its unique plant spirit familiar, clear how-to instructions for
magical projects, and pragmatic information on growing
and cultivating.

This is the essential plant-worker’s guide. Roth is not only
a successful gardener, but also a magician and scholar of
the occult. No other book blends clear, practical gardening
techniques with equally lucid and sophisticated plant magic
so successfully.

If you are in need of a reference book on essential plants for the witch's garden look no further. Whether you are looking for a writers reference, gardening tips or plant magic knowledge, this book has it all.  I found myself lost in its pages as if reading a story about all the different aspects of plants I had read about but never had the pleasure to know. And now I do thanks to this author's unique voice and perspective.
