    This book has been a real treat to read each month from what veggies & fruits are in season, recipes, meditation, healing remedies and so on, all accompanied by a family tale.

The American I am, being able to hear the English accents just made reading this that much more enjoyable(even when converting metric measurements for the recipes). Must read, must own.

    A bit chatty in tone, but this would be a great started guide for many new witches.

    This has been my favorite of the witchy books. Recipes for the whole year AND it made a point not to focus on wicca as the end-all be-all of witchcraft. Kudos, book. I liked you.

    Hedge Witch Book of Days Plot: Month by month this book you how to incorporate witchcraft into your day to day life. My Thoughts: Even though this book wasn’t what I expected and I felt like it strayed just a little bit too far into the aspect of how to use incorporate witchcraft into activities with children -and I have none so I really didn’t find this useful and a little unnecessary (but just my opinion It did have some good tips in it. And it did have a cozy, warm, feeling about it. I’ll share Hedge Witch Book of Days Plot: Month by month this book you how to incorporate witchcraft into your day to day life. My Thoughts: Even though this book wasn’t what I expected and I felt like it strayed just a little bit too far into the aspect of how to use incorporate witchcraft into activities with children -and I have none so I really didn’t find this useful and a little unnecessary (but just my opinion It did have some good tips in it. And it did have a cozy, warm, feeling about it. I’ll share the things I found useful for me. March: I learned about the relations of animals to the elements and emotions. I learned that baking soda can be useful to eliminate foot order (a good one because I wear high top boots ALL the time). Then it talked about how to keep your witch stuff discreet. It is SO easy to do this if you do it the right way. I have a 3-panel picture of a set of moons over my bed and the people in my family just think it’s a set of moons. The truth is unless people really are aware of witch symbolism and what it’s tied to they can easily see and don’t see. Signs can be all in their faces and they don’t even realize. And she points this out with the example of a dish of salt. May- WHAAT? So, I learned that in May married people use to that take off their wedding rings and leave there vows at home for the day which sounds like in the month of fertility it’s permissible to have affairs. Like there needs to be a special month. I learned how we’re in us the triple aspect of the maiden, the mother, and the crone. It talked about the Goddess and how we are the Goddess and we don’t need to seek her because she’s within us and this to me is empowering to read. That loving yourself is loving her. Did not know asprin was made from the substance of a willow tree. September-Teaches us to be grateful for the pain and suffering not just for what we have, which is a good lesson to keep in mind. November- I learned that a small bell by your bed when rung can chase away negative thoughts. There was a good idea about how to celebrate the darkness by drawing the curtain and spending time alone by candlelight December- I learned about the holy (male) and the ivy (female) and thought about why you see TONS of Christmas cars but no Yule cards. And even tho I don’t care for honey how it can be used to soothe an upset stomach January- I never thought about how our New Year is celebrated in October. February- I learned that bath oil can be added with milk to make the tub not slippery. I use a lavender bath oil sometimes that works wonders to help u relax and sleep. I also learned that milk can make a paste for burns. Wish I had known that before I read this when I burned my hand taking something hot out the microwave. As well as milk can soften skin. Rating: 6 I like that it keeps it interesting and while there were some things you’d find in a typical 101 type Wiccan book, it keeps it light and didn’t bog you down with long list. But it did stray off-topic with stories of the author’s family which while it brought a personal touch, I just didn’t feel like it was a good fit. I did like the recipes added and there are some that I would try.

    This was a nice reference book, when looking for ideas for ritual or cooking. The simple, one word description of each month, as well as the days that could be honored were also well thought out. Some of the lore I was a bit iffy on, and the rituals and recipes didn't all work for me, but I was able to be creative with what I had. The way is was laid out was also very helpful, focusing on each month and not the seasons or the high days. All around, a decent book.

    Absolutely lovely! The recipes are good and I really enjoyed Mitchell's writing style. Very down to earth with rituals I can actually see myself doing. It is everything I wished the 'Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials' series would be. Hoping Mitchell will write more books in the future; I'd happily read along. Absolutely lovely!

    I’m not quite sure what I was hoping for, but this book didn’t have it for sure. Too simplistic for me, too wishy-washy and boring.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It has given me some excellent tips on things I can easily do about the house and garden.

    Very handy book for modern day Wicca practitioners. Some discrepancies in colors and herbs for each month, but as to be expected from a neopagan religion.

    I'm taking the author's advice after having read the introduction I skipped to the season we are entering and plan to return to address each upcoming season. I like a good reference book.

    As per the guidelines, I won this book through a Facebook giveaway but I'm not obligated to review (good or bad) the copy. I'm just obligated to state that I didn't pay for the book when I review it. For a hedge book, it's filled with a few interesting tidbits and ideas. There isn't a bog down of charts and lists, rituals, and other items you typically see in metaphysical books. Each section, for each month, does start off with the typical association chart though.

There isn't a bog down of charts and lists, rituals, and other items you typically see in metaphysical books. Each section, for each month, does start off with the typical association chart though. My only personal twitch from reading was the Wicca tones (such as the "Harm None" rule) since I'm not Wiccan. One of her best ideas that I cheered for when I read it was to wear gloves while harvesting whether it be in your own garden or in the wild. Not too many books do that when they should because of the various reactions plants can cause over time. The author also includes recipes with each month. With the author being from the UK, the metric notes before standard notes will jarring for some American readers. This doesn't deter the recipes and adds to the fun personal stories about the months in her writing.
