The worst 'Green Witch' book I've encountered. As a huge fan of incense I was shocked to read what this unenlightened author had to say on that particular topic. She routinely suggests using inferior products and poor techniques. She obvously did her research (assuming she did any at all) using New Age books from the 1980s or earlier. Back then selflighting charcoal, saltpetre, and frangrance oils were all acceptable for majick. To see an author in the 21st century recomend using this kind of garbage in a book about Green Witches is shocking. Hasn't she read the current research about saltpetre and frangrance oils? Who would tell a Green Witch to use some junk made in a labratory rather than using natural materials which is the focus of Green Witchcraft. Some of the information was stupid. Grind up stones and add to your incense? Some minerals can be added to incense but why-oh-why would you tell someone you can add 'stone' to incense. She gives no reason for this but throws the information out there as a recomendation. In this book she also continues to spread the old 'wisdom' of how hard simple things are to do. Its hard to extract oils at home so dont waste your time. Burn incense on cheap, offensive charcoal that will drive the spirits out of your circle and insult them. What about her 'stone lore' section? It was a few pages of the names of some stones and her idea of their majick use but there was no lore anywhere. Where was the historic references? Where was the classic use of these stones? The section continues to get worse as she repeated the same old bad information from other poorly written books. Cleanse stones in moving water is a good idea for some minerals but that will damage or destroy some crystals. No warning about that, just a generic and incorrect instruction. The herb information is just as bad. She talked very quickly grinding herbs. She said that 'some people' (never says who) thinks that using metal containers for herbs will majickly taint them. As if that isnt bad enough to make such a giant generalization she never mentions that metal can checmically react with some herb and oils and actually change them. My review is to leave this book behind. Dont buy, dont sell it. If you must read it you can borrow my copy until I decide to throw it away or sell it at a tag sale for $.25. Its a total waste of time written by someone who knows next to nothing about the topics she claims to be expert in. There are many GOOD Green Witch books out there. This writer clearer is trying to jump on the bandwagon and make some quick money off the popularity of the GOOD books on this topic. I wont ever waste my money on another book with Ms. Murphy-Hiscocks name on it. If she has such a lack of ethics as to publish this worthless trash then I cant buy into anything she endorses.

Great middle of the road book. If your interested in the very strange or the dark side, this book is not for you. This book does a great job in helping anyone on a path to a more spiritually green way of life.
