One of the very first of its kind, this book includes:

  • The rich history and lore of scent-related magic
  • Over 135 essential oil recipes and craft projects
  • An explanation of how magical aromatherapy can enhance divination with tarot and runes
  • Practical information regarding the purchasing, blending, and storing of essential oils

Review Quotes:

In her signature style, Amy Blackthorn offers botanical entries which are thorough and informative, with herbal lore to satisfy and so many rich, inspired recipes for magical intentions -- spells -- all based on aromatherapy. Carrier oils are well-discussed as are ways to use magical EO's every day. There are even recipes using other types of botanicals such as chile pepper and whole clove, the inclusion of which I consider a real bonus. -- Doreen Shababy, author of The Wild & Weedy Apothecary-- "Reviews"


Blackthorn's Botanical Magic is a fantastic starter guide and takes such care in speaking about the origins and cultural connections of various plants and herbs. If you're looking for a practical guide that also takes time to answer how and why we're drawn to botanical magic, this is it. -- Jaya Saxena, co-author of Basic Witches-- "Reviews"


I absolutely love this book! Amy Blackthorn's vast experience with herbs and oils is evident on every page, and her friendly, wise, and witty voice makes it a pleasure to read. I particularly liked the chapter on using herbs in cleansing smoke, as well as the attention given to base oils and their various magical uses. The entries for each herb are rich with lore, recipes, and magical uses. This unique reference is a must-have for anyone who wants to get serious about using essential oils in their magic! -- Lisa Chamberlain, author of Wicca Herbal Magic, WiccaLiving.com-- "Reviews"
