I’m currently deep in rewrites on the next installment of Sunwalker Saga: Witchblood. Mistwalker is coming along nicely and I admit the research has been quite fun. I’ve had to dive into the workings of spellcraft, astral projection, and potions. I do love a good potion!
I’m especially interested in potions anyone can create in their own home. Simple magic created from household spices and herbs. Which, naturally, let me to kitchen witchery. So, I thought I’d share a few things I learned about kitchen witches. In no particular order:
- Kitchen witches (also called Cottage witches and Hearth witches) practice what is considered “practical” magic.
- They tend to be healers and are usually in their 40s or above.
- They work with natural elements such as flowers, stones, and trees.
- They do their greatest magic in the kitchen (hence the name), and have a talent for food crafting.
- They have a natural instinct for protection of the home and loved ones.
Do you practice kitchen magic? Or know anyone who does? What’s your favorite ingredient to work with?
