Book Review: The Green Witch: Your Complete Guide to the Natural Magic of Herbs, Flowers, Essential Oils, and More by Arin Murphy-Hiscock

Okay, I cannot really review this book as it is intended as I read this as research for my upcoming book. As a material for my book, I got a ton of information that I can use to make my characters and the setting seem more authentic, but that is not the only thing that caught my eye. It was the psychology behind it all: the philosophies and spirituality through nature. The connection we form with nature is powerful and meaningful, studies have shown that it promotes both health and happiness, decreasing blood pressure and stress and increasing general well-being and sense of meaning of oneself towards nature and other beings. So, yes, nature is a powerful force to take into one’s life. And the book speaks about the same mechanics. Still, from a traditional witchcraft point of view about energies and interaction through substance rather than biological and scientific explanations, the end result is the same, except through witchcraft there comes along another source, a way to define oneself and create another layer of meaning and place in the world. And I can appreciate that.

So that is pretty much all I can say without getting into details. There were tons of practical tips on how to handle flowers and plants. And the general tone of the book is positive and understanding.

Thank you for reading, and sorry about this short review. Have a flowery day!
