|thebunnypirate||05:27 pm - Hi!|
I'm Sara, and I've been studying wicca for about 4 years now.
I live in a not-so-witch-friendly area and don't really have anyone to talk to.
When I first discovered the craft, I fell in love with it right away. Especially oil and herb magick. I actually was gonna take class to be a herbalist. Is anyone else here into herb magick? I would love to here from you. ^_^

Well,to be honest I'm not exactly an expert on herb magick although I find it a fascinating subject.
You have my symapathies about living in a less than friendly area,one can't be too carefull, you never know what kind of oposition one may find.
I have pursued Magick all my life,it is an endless quest,an unending call that drives us to seek knoledge and insight.
Herbal lore is a noble persuit I wish you well with it.

Green Growing Things
While I consider myself something of a dilettante on the subject, I have found that most of the Scott Cunningham works on the subject are an excellent starting place; if for nothing else but reference, whether you practice Gardnerian Wicca or not. And often, you can find Herbal books on the remainder tables at chain bookstores. They don't always expound on the more Craft oriented aspects, but do help with a lot of the other basics, like growing, and harvesting. Also, you might try books about massage therapy, which often give recipes for oils; and a copy of The Joy of Cooking, which often gives explanations about heating, cooling and storing various types of herbs, and their uses in cooking.
I tend to babble; hope this helps. blessed be!
