Hedge Witch: Into the Wilds…
Let me take you on a journey through the wilds of nature and back to the roots and bones of witchcraft, a natural witchcraft that works with the seasons and all the natural items that Mother Nature provides drawing on magical folk lore with a dash of hedge witch and gypsy magic too.
The blossom or flowers from any tree or plant can be popped into a vase to dress up your altar or dried or pressed to use in magical workings, incense blends and crafts. Dried petals and flowers can also be pressed onto candles quite effectively or steeped in oil to create anointing oils and perfumes.
When you are looking for a flower to use in magic trust your intuition but the list below will get you started.
Here are some of those often found in the wild:
