OK, you've heard about spells and evocations and stuff like that, but what is magic using herbs? I mean, nobody has a reason to make a fern levitate!
In The Truth About Herb Magic, world-famous authority Scott Cunningham reveals the secret. Every herb has special energies. Combine those energies with your own and you can use the combination to make powerful, positive transformations in your life.
One of the things which sets herb magic apart is that it is actually very easy to do. You won't need any wands or robes, just some common herbs like basil and fennel, cedar and cinnamon. Combine them (or use them independently) and add your own energy through concentration and visualization, and you can have a powerful magical tool.
There are eleven modes of herb magic, and this book shows you how to use each. You make bath salts by mixing essential oils (from herbs) with mixed salts to use in special baths. To make an herbal amulet you combine herbs for your purpose in a small cloth bag. These can be placed around the home, worn, or carried with you. Herbal pillows are larger and collections of herbs and can be made into a pillow or placed beneath the pillow when you sleep. You'll find the secrets to nine other methods of herb magic revealed in this book.
You'll also find a listing of the magical qualities of herbs. Some are for increasing psychic awareness. Others bring love or protection. Does your household need more money? You'll find instructions for making a talisman using cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, basil, and black tea.
Herb magic is popular because it is simple, it is powerful, and it works. If you are ready to begin learning this system of powerful magic, this is the book you should begin with. Scott Cunningham is recognized as one of the leading experts on herb magic in the world. Shouldn't you learn from the best?
About the Author
Scott Cunningham was one of the world's foremost experts on herb magic and Llewellyn was very fortunate to be able to publish many of his works. But I knew that if you were new to magic you might find a large book on the subject a bit intimidating, no matter how simple and easy it was to read and understand. Scott didn't just read about herb magic, it was his passion. He lived it every day. The question is, how do you introduce the concepts of herb magic to people who are just becoming interested?
Scott was able to solve this problem easily with The Truth About Herb Magic. I think that this wonderful little book is the best introduction to herb magic ever. No, it's not as complete as the larger books. Instead it focuses on the basic ideas and concepts so that when a person goes on to read other books by any author that reader will understand them completely.
So this book reveals the inner secrets of herb magic. Here you will learn that it is easy and uses common objects like herbs (of course), cloth, candles, mixing bowls, etc. You'll learn that part of the secret of herb magic is that you must combine the natural energies of the herbs with your own while focusing on the purpose of the magic. Difficult? Not at all! You'll be doing it in no time.
But the book goes beyond just basic theories and gets down to the practicalities. You'll learn eleven different ways of using herbs in magic. You find out which herbs are good for doing love magic and which ones are good for protection. You'll even discover step-by-step herbal spells and magical formulas.
Does the book work? Well, you'll have to make up your own mind on that. But I think this small book does far more than just tell you about herb magic. It can actually turn you into an herb magician. It can start you on a magical path that can lead to happiness and success. And I think you deserve it.
