Everyone's Guide to the Magic of Plants

Our lives are dependent upon the plant kingdom. Plants provide oxygen to breathe, homes to live in, food to eat, heat to keep us warm on cold nights, shade for warm days, medicines to help us heal when we ail, and so much more.

Plants also have spiritual and magical values in our lives. Most often, books that describe such powers are limited in their scope or include cold listings that don't come close to indicating the immediate and intimate connections humans have to the kingdom of plants.

Flower and Tree Magic, though, written by Richard Webster in his inimitable personal style, will bring you closer to the world of plants and plant magic than ever before. This complete guide to over one hundred plants, trees, herbs, and flowers includes everything:

• Contains everything from scientific facts to anecdotes and superstitions
• Reveals the power of aromatherapy to improve your health and feelings
• Shares how plants are used in shamanism and magical spells
• Unveils the truth about plant aphrodisiacs
• Guides you in selecting the right tree to absorb negative energy
• Shows the most effective way to hug trees

This barely scratches the surface of the amazing amount of useful material you'll find in this brand new book. And, it's presented in a way that anyone can understand.

The Real Secret Life of Plants
Did you know that the almond tree is popular with fairies or that it can help you find the strength to overcome difficult situations? Or did you know that the sycamore is used in healing potions? Flower and Tree Magic reveals the secret mysteries of over two dozen types of trees, from alder to yew. It then shows how to use them as oracles, to release negativity, and in meditation. You'll also discover the secrets of the Celtic Tree Alphabet and how the Ogham letters can be used in divination.

After describing trees and their magic, Webster moves into the colorful, well-scented world of flowers. Here he describes more than two dozen flowers and their traditional attributions, such as how to use the roots of a daffodil to relieve the pain and inflammation of bruises and wounds, when drinking dandelion tea will increase your psychic abilities, how to prepare St. John's wort for use as an amulet to protect your home, and how to use yarrow to prevent anyone from casting a spell on you.

Bach Flower Remedies
Flower and Tree Magic also reveals the history and technology of the famous healing system of Dr. Edward Bach and which of his flower remedies can be used to treat particular ailments. The use of more than three dozen flowers in aromatherapy is also revealed, including how to use the scents in healing baths, massage, perfumes, and more. Also covered is the use of flowers in shamanism, ten steps to psychic protection, and simple spells using flowers to protect your home. It's all easy to do and it's all in this amazing book.

The Victorian Flower Language
There is a long tradition of giving flowers to friends and those you love. During the Victorian era, almost one hundred books described the symbolic meanings of the flowers you would give. In this book you'll learn that now-secret language. You'll also discover how to do divinations with flowers and give readings to others with them. You'll even learn the meanings of plants when they appear in your dreams.

Space prevents us from describing all of the amazing information that you'll find in Flower and Tree Magic. Whether you are interested in doing quick, simple, and powerful spells or learning about the properties of plants for complex rituals, or if you just want to know more about plants, their food values, medicinal qualities, and magical associations, this is the book that will help you make sense of the wonderful world of plants.

Spring is a busy time for the hearth witch. It is time to prepare the ground, plant seeds, and gather the early flowers and greenery of the year for food, remedies, and magical use. As I look around, the woodland and hedgerow trees are hazed with green as the leaves begin to unfurl. The fields are scattered with a blaze of yellow flowers at this... read this article
