Curative Magic: A Witch’s Guide to Self-Discovery, Care, & Healing
To be published 1st September 2020 by Llewellyn
I am very excited for my latest book to be published, although I have several books published with Moon Books (um…I think we are up to 18 so far) . This will be my first book published by Llewellyn. And in the official blurb I am referred to as ‘renowned‘…I am still not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing…
The official blurb:
Tap into the power of nature and learn how to unleash your inner magic to navigate modern-day life and the issues the universe throws at you. Curative Magic shows you how to work with the tools that witchcraft provides, including spells, rituals, and herbs as well as meditation and recipes.
Nature is incredibly clever–plants, herbs, crystals, and other natural materials can improve spells, provide guidance, enhance your personal health, and help you work through life’s challenges. Kitchen witch and author Rachel Patterson shares her own experiences, personal rituals, recipes, and remedies to help you manage depression, anxiety, insomnia, ailments, and many other common issues we confront.
