So it’s been said that the Bible is the oldest spell book on the planet. I had been practicing magic for nearly 20 years when I first came across a worker.  Who very much like myself,  practices a wide range of magics. 

So when she recommended this book in one of her talks, I jumped on it. Money spells, love spells, protection spells, healing, success works, and on and on. There is little to nothing this book doesn’t give you works that will jump-start your magical path.

One of the best pieces of advice I can give to those starting on their witchcraft path is to learn the old ways regarding herbs and roots. Catherine’s book does an excellent job of teaching the old-school meanings and uses of the herbs, roots, and minerals all around us. 

This work covers over 500 herbs, roots, minerals, and different hoodoo items used in crafting. While this book is by no means exhausting on the subject it covers a HUGE chunk of information, that I can promise you’ve never heard before. 

Catherine walks you through crafting mojo bags, spiritual baths, crafting your incense, and over 750 spells. Working tricks, traditional spells, witchcraft for beginners chants, magical recipes, along with illustrations. This little wonder book will not lead you astray.
