The Faerie's Guide to Green Magick from the Garden Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Green magick, or stewardship of the earth, begins right in our own backyards. When we cultivate an herb garden—even if it’s just a few potted plants on a sunny windowsill—we are tending living, sentient beings who respond to our intention, our energy, and our tender loving care. The “fae” (faerie) essence residing at the heart of each nurtured plant manifests in its foliage, flowers, fragrance, and flavor, and its unique healing, nourishing, and restorative properties. 

     

In The Faeries’ Guide to Green Magick from the Garden author and free-fae-spirit Jamie Wood offers fresh, faerie-centric profiles of thirty-three familiar medicinal and culinary herbs accompanied by recipes for natural healing remedies, earth-friendly beauty products, and tasty treats. Fantasy artist Lisa Steinke pairs each herb with a vibrant portrait of its personality—its unique faerie signature—in her lyrical poetry and luminous paintings.

     

With blissful blessings, magickal meditations, and zesty spells sprinkled throughout, The Faeries Guide to Green Magick from the Garden will help you get in touch with your own fae spirit and explore the earthly—and earthy—delights of your own garden.  

Synopsis:

Popular Pagan-Wiccan author Wood delivers a richly illustrated guide to the world of plant faerie essences. She profiles 33 common garden herbs, explores their healing lore and uses, and adds eco-friendly growing tips for today's backyard herbalist. Full color.

Synopsis:

This richly illustrated guide to the world of plant faerie essences profiles 33 common garden herbs, explores their healing lore and uses, and adds eco-friendly growing tips for today’s backyard herbalist.

Marrying ancient faerie wisdom, eco-conscious green magick, and traditional herbalism is a natural yet unique combination in the world of herbals or faerie literature. Popular Pagan-Wiccan author Jamie Wood profiles 33 common herbs and accompanies each with a “green” growing tip, a recipe for a healing remedy or earth-friendly beauty product, a suggested use in one of four ancient healing traditions (aryurveda, aromatherapy, homeopathy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine), and concludes with a meditation, incantation, or prayer. What truly sets this book apart from other garden variety herbal books is the “portrait” of each herb’s faerie essence, captured in paintings by the popular fantasy artist Lisa Steinke. Illuminating text, luminous images, and creative packaging make The Faeries’ Guide to Green Magick in the Garden an enchanted—and enchanting—offering.
