Book Review of: Cottage Witchery. Natural Magick for Hearth and Home by Ellen Dugan

Ever wondered about Wicca…could it be for you? This might be your chance to find out!

This is a really charming book which is not just for those that practice Wicca already. But it might encourage you to take a closer look at the Wiccan tradition.

Cottage Witchery is full of wonderful, earthy charms and spells and is written in a light, friendly style which will appeal to everyone.

The book has nine chapters and a small sample of the intriguing contents are:

  • Enchanted Entrances and Bewitched Backdoors
  • The Elements, Astrology and color
  • A Juicy Spell for Removing Bad Vibes
  • Household Faeries: The Brownies
  • A Dream Catcher Spell
  • A Honeysuckle Flower Fascination
  • An Enchanted Herbal Broom for Hearth and Home

Each chapter is full of simple spells and tips which don't require the reader to have any knowledge of Wicca, and they also have ingredients which readily available in most homes and gardens.

At this festive time of year, I have to mention the Yule Log! This is a lovely, ancient charm which is performed on December 20-21st which ensures good luck and prosperity for the coming year. It also protects your home from negativity, bad vibes and ghosts. My family has had a yule log for years and I have to say it really brings a lovely, magical start to the holiday. There is a great version of the Yule Log spell in Cottage Witchery.

Cottage Witchery also has information about houseplants, fruit, flowers and trees and what magical attributes they bring to you and your home.

Do you need help boosting your abundance? You'll find it in this book with some fun, creative and powerful spells using simple items such as candles, crystals, herbs and spices.

This is a fun book with a chance to participate in the Wiccan tradition in an uncomplicated and simple way.

Having tried a number of the charms and spells, I really loved it and give it:
