My Opinion:
This was a good book. But it doesn`t really stand out from a lot of the other books I read on this topic. It has some good advises for different spells etc.
And is easy to read, well putten together.
Tough I would recommend to have this book on paperform. I had it on ebook, and it kind of ruined it.
I think this book would be better as paperform, coz then you can flip through to the stuff you are looking for. :)
Coz it has a good list of different herbs and their meanings.
There are also household groceries and how to use them in the house or in magic rituals.
So all in all this is a good book to look up things in :)
I ended up rating it 4 out of 6 stars.

Since it`s a good book. But I felt there was missing something + it was for me like most the other books I read on this topic :)

Are you interested in magic and other alternativ stuff?? :)



  1. The paper form is really fantastic and does certainly help. I don't think I'd want this one as an e-book. I enjoyed this one because it had a very simple approach and isn't showy. There are several books that I've picked up like this that felt...showy. I don't think that's the right word. This was very practical.

    Gorgeous blog, btw!!

    1. Thanks :)

      yeah.. thanks for sharing your experience on it :)
