ABOUT THE BOOK
Magick and the Healing Arts have developed hand in hand through the long centuries of human history. Before the advent of modern chemistry, the medical and ritual needs of peoples in all societies were met with the careful harvest, formulation and application of herbal medicines. Derived from ingredients found locally, in forest, meadow, and stream, these elixirs, philtres, oils and salves saved lives and transfigured awareness.
Using observation and an intricate understanding of the natural world—from the astrological movement of the stars and planets, to the cycles of the earth’s seasons – the ancients knew when and where to gather herbs for peak potency and efficacy.
This knowledge, as applicable today as it was millennia ago, is gathered here in an easy-to-use compendium.
Master herbalist and magickal practitioner Karen Harrison shows how to select herbs based on their astrological associations as well as their medicinal properties. With a material magica of more than 150 herbs and a multitude of recipes, readers will learn how to blend incense, ceremonial oils, bath salts, herbal amulets, fluid condensers, and herbal philtres; and how to use them in meditation, ritual, or energy work.
