A personal and all encompassing guide to what it is to be a Witch, how to live and work within the Craft.
This book is essentially a Book of Shadows, a Kitchen Witch’s Grimoire. It covers what it means to be a Witch, how a Witch works, what a Witch does and how a Witch celebrates the turning of the seasons. It is packed full of information about all sorts of subjects from a breakdown of rituals and magical tools to reading auras and rites of passage, along with meditations, recipes for oils, incenses and spells and a huge amount of crafts to make for each Sabbat.

Magic and the Craft are fluid and flexible, it is ever changing and we are ever learning.
