Magick in the Kitchen

The Kitchen is the Hearth and the Heart of the home and this is where the magick happens! Welcome to my kitchen. The kitchen is my happy place where am always whipping up something magical, nourishing and fun.

Kitchen Witchery is a magical art akin to alchemy but also closely tied to folk magick. The Kitchen Witch uses materials at hand to craft magical spells that also double as delicious meals, home decor, bath products, clothing, jewelry and other everyday items. Kitchen Witches cook and craft with intention while being mindful of the natural properties of the materials they use. While many Kitchen Witches work on instinct, we also spend a great deal of time studying recipes and the magical, healing and nutritional properties of the foods we use.
