Resources for Kitchen Witches, Hedge Witches, Hearth Witches, etc.

A friend asked about this topic, and I came up with a list of resources.  If you want one book on natural magic as a starter, I recommend Earth Power by Scott Cunningham. Below are more ideas. Kitchen witchery is all about the magic of doing and the sacredness of everyday things. It's practical, not fancy; pick a topic you like and explore it, looking for the spiritual aspects within it.

Thank again! I particularly like this list because the number of great web articles available give me something I can do in the short term while waiting to receive the books I've bought or procured through library loans!

I'm glad to hear that. Some of the links lead to whole websites that are gathering places for people who prefer informal magic and personal spirituality. You may find more ideas there.

I have the Celtic Folklore Cooking and really enjoy it.

Nice list, thanks! I'll enjoy checking some of the others out as I have the chance.
