Natural magic uses the things around us for magical purposes. Herbs are one of the most important tools for natural magic, and the most comprehensive introduction to this system is found in Scott Cunningham's Magical Herbalism.
Everything you need to know to work this gentle but powerful spiritual system is included in the book. It begins by telling you about the tools you need to be a magical herbalist. These include your magic knife, mortar and pestle, candles, and a censer – all of which can be easily obtained or made. Next you will get a short primer on real magic. Not only does this include theory, but also practical and simple techniques that will allow you to do herbal magic in your own home.
While it is true that you can buy herbs in stores (or grow them), you can also gather them if you know what to look for. Even in the largest, cement-covered cities you can find empty lots covered with "weeds" that are actually treasures of magic! This book shows you how to identify the herbs you need, gather them in a spiritually sound manner, and then dry and store them.
Next come the real secrets of herb magic. Here you'll learn what herbs to use and how to use them for doing magic. You'll discover the mysteries of protection, divination, healing, and love. Revealed here are the herbs and the elements and step-by-step directions for making fluid condensers which harness these powers.
You'll also learn how to make incenses. But merely knowing how to make them isn't enough. You'll also learn what scents to use to aid in rituals of prosperity, Egyptian magic, and more. Next, the book reveals the secrets of how to make and use traditional amulets and charms.
Perhaps the most valuable part of the book is the "Witch's Herbal." This is an alphabetical listing of over 115 herbs commonly used in magic. Included here are such things as technical names, magical powers, astrological rulerships, and folk names.
Not enough? Also included is a listing of the magical names of flowers, herbs, roots and trees that have been and are used by Witches and herbalists. Did you know that Shakespeare's famous "eye of newt" and "toe of frog" are actually herbs? You'll also find how to magically grow your own herbs and the magical and psychic uses of Beladonna, Datura, Amanita Muscaria, Hellbore, Hemlock, Hemp, Henbane and the secrets of the famous Witches' flying ointment.
This book is more than just an explanation of herbal magic. It is an entire system of magic that you can do. Virtually every step you need to learn is here. Nothing is left out. If you're ready to do magic, this book is a must.

"Canines of all kinds are some of the most commonly cited totemic ancestors and tribal as well as personal totems of people practicing magic even today. To those who practice Norse magic (Seidr) the wolf is a powerful totem and spiritual force, and Asatru followers even today use this power in their work. Magical possession by this power for the... read this article
