"What a fun and helpful book! Patti's style is inviting, and she tackles an important piece of modern magical practice. Herbalism is a vast subject and can easily confuse the practitioner who is adding it into their practice. Patti makes it manageable, understandable and imminently usable." --H. Byron Ballard, village witch and author of Earth Works: Ceremonies in Tower Time
"From Patti Wigington, an acknowledged Wise Woman in modern Witchcraft, comes the only herb book you may ever need. Charmingly written and full of suggestions for practical applications, this is one book I will be recommending for a long time to come." --Deborah Blake, author of The Little Book of Cat Magic and Everyday Witchcraft
"Wigington's Herb Magic is a guide on the topic written for today's magical practitioner. Covered are often omitted topics such as navigating ethics and the use of endangered herbs, toxicity of certain herbs, and the process of how to attune with herbs. Importantly, Wigington lays out not only the how of herb magic but the also the why. Why are certain herbs considered magical? Why are spells timed a certain way? Why would I use an altar for herb magic? A thoughtful and complete introductory guide that practitioners of all levels will want to have on their reference shelf." --Blake Octavian Blair, Shamanic & Druidic Practitioner, regular contributor to Llewellyn's Annuals Series, www.blakeoctavianblair.com
