I am a solitary Green witch. (Baby witch) so I’ve relied on what I can find on the internet, books and myself. There are so many wonderful books to find and check out if you are just starting out. Or maybe want some more ideas. Here are the books I think are the stand outs (so far) that I’ve read. If you have some more to add please comment below. I’m always down to check out a new witchy book.
“In The Green Witch, you will learn the way of the green witch, from how to use herbs, plants, and flowers to make potions and oils for everyday healing as well as how crystals, gems, stones, and even twigs can help you find balance within. You’ll discover how to find harmony in Earth’s great elements and connect your soul to every living creature. This guide also contains directions for herbal blends and potions, ritual suggestions, recipes for sacred foods, and information on how to listen to and commune with nature. Embrace the world of the green witch and discover what the power of nature has in store for you.”
This is the book that started it all. I was shopping and came across this beautiful thing and knew I had to have it. This book is a great introduction into what The Green Witch is all about. And even has some cool recipes in the back. It opened my eyes to what witchcraft was actually all about. It was also insane to me how much I had in common with the beliefs system and just the connection. I knew from the moment I started reading it that I was going down this road.
“The Mystical Handbook series from Wellfleet takes you on a magical journey through the wonderful world of spellcraft and spellcasting. Explore a new practice with each volume and learn how to incorporate spells, rituals, blessings, and cleansings into your daily routine. These portable companions feature beautiful foil-detail covers and color-saturated interiors on a premium paper blend.”
I recently came across this one down my local shopping centre. And not only is this book pretty (and honestly the drawings in side are beautiful) it is simple to use and read. Which is prefect. I’ve come across a few books that are to much of an information dump that I skimp and get bored. This isn’t it. It gives you the basic run down on what each plant/herb stands for and how to use them.
“In The Modern Witchcraft Guide to Magickal Herbs, learn everything you need to use the most powerful herbs and use them as an essential part of your practice. Including information on which herbs are best for what kinds of spells, how to use herbs in divination and rituals, and step-by-step guides to making herbal bundles, potions, and sprays, this guidebook has all the important facts to make your herbal witchcraft a success.
Jam-packed with herbal ideas, this guide is perfect for both beginners and experienced witches looking to incorporate more herbs into their practice. Beautiful and functional, it is easy to navigate and offers a detailed guide to herbal magic!”
Speaking of Herb books. This one is like a master list of all them. I don’t think it’s as pretty as our friend above. But it’s still a cool book to own.
“Self-care and magic work together in this guide to help you become the best version of yourself. You’ll learn how to nourish your body and spirit with herbal remedies, spells, and rituals inspired by witchcraft in this unique, enchanted guide to self-care.“
This book is great for self care ideas. You don’t have to be into witchcraft to use this. And it was something I was really looking for. I’m always down to try new self-care tricks. As someone who suffers from chronic pain and depression. It is helpful to keep yourself at peace. It does go through the basic things like eat and sleep well etc but it also has some nice DIY things too.
“In Witchcraft Therapy, you will learn how to use the mystical powers of intention, mindful manifestation, divination, and righteous indignation to cope with whatever life throws your way. Author and witchy wellness guru Mandi Em offers advice in her own unique brand of positivity providing spells, rituals, and more that you can do right at home.”
First of all I love the way this is written there is no BS here. I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile. And this really helped. And honestly if your going to pick up any witchy (self help) book let it be this one.
It had a lot in it that you can use (and tweak to fit your needs and beliefs).
It’s easy and actually fun to read (which is always a plus) it didn’t feel like I was being told what to do. Or that there is only one right way.
I read this through out the morning and spent alot if time highlighting some of her tips.
I was pretty lost on how I was planning on making a grimoire. But this book gets to the point. It shows you ideas, and even has some cool looking page options. She even tells you about all the types, what you can write about pretty much all the basic stuff. Which is prefect for a baby witch. I didn’t end up following everything in here but I took her advice and ran with it. This was also one of the books I was really looking forward to getting my hands on.
“The Path of the Witchdescribes the many different types of witches, their gifts and abilities, and their practices. Each path shows readers activities and rituals that they can use to discover and explore that type of witchcraft and discern which one is the fit for them.”
This book is great for finding which path you may want to follow. Or be labelled. It gets to the point of each type of witch. And has heaps of beautiful illustrations inside. It’s easy and fun to read and definitely worth a look if you are a beginner.
As someone who went into this knowing absolutely nothing about Chakra it really helped. It gave all the right information. And was easy to understand and want to understand. I felt like when I finished reading it I had a better understanding on what it is and what it does.
Thank you for reading. Hope you find more books to check out on this list. As time goes on I will be devouring more on this topic so maybe later on I can do this again with new books.
