Many books on magical herbs contain extensive lists of ingredients that may be expensive, difficult to find, or both. Unless you already have a well-stocked herb pantry, trying to decide where to start can be overwhelming. In addition, some books provide spells that call for just a pinch of a rare herb you have to order online, which can be rather inefficient—especially if the herb only appears in one spell! The spells in Herbal Magic are all centered around the same 13 herbs, most of which are inexpensive and easy to find. Most are also culinary and/or medicinal herbs, so you’ll have plenty of options for using anything leftover from your spellwork. This approach to the subject makes it easier and far more efficient for you to get your herbal practice underway!
