Kitchen Witchcraft:

The Element of Earth


PUB DATE: Jan 29, 2021​

Adding to the Kitchen Witchcraft series, the first in a set of four books focusing on the elements. Each book will go in depth into one of the elements, this one will be all about the element of Earth; how to work with it, rituals, spells, correspondences, elementals, meditations and practical exercises.
Another wonderful book from Rachel Patterson! Written with her down to earth (no pun intended), no nonsense manner, she provides factual information as well as esoteric ways of working with this element. This book is going to be another of those great reference sources, already having many post it notes, it will not lay idle on the shelf.
This fabulous book was a real eye opener for me as I discovered many different aspects of this element from the first page to the last. There are meditations, correspondences and recipes throughout and was a very interesting and enjoyable read. Comes highly recommended as a title for anyone’s collection!
Such a good book about the element of earth, full of information. An easy read over a couple of evenings and then a go back to reference book for the future. As with all of Rachel’s books easy to understand, practical and full of humour.
I am a huge fan of Rachel's work, so I could be biased, but I love this book. I am always open to learning new things, and you can teach an old witch new spells I can assure you!
This book is written in Rachel's chatty fun informative style. You feel as though you've sat down with a friend for a brew and a chat (which in this current crisis is much needed). There's the basics of earth energy and magic, to working with ancestors, plants, crystals, and what we can do to help the planet. There's so much in the book it would take too long to list it all, and you need to pick up a copy and discover it for yourself.
One of the surprises for me was the meditations on places that connect with the earth, such as caves, groves, farms, and libraries! The latter was about finding advice and inspiration. I loved the suggestions, some of which, like libraries, I'd have never thought about.
So another winner for Rachel, my copy now has lots of scribblings and notes in the margins. I can heartily recommend it, it's easy to read, loads of things to try and learn from, and easy to pick up and put down or read cover to cover if you want.
