Day 15-How To incorporate Magick in Cooking/Day 16-Herbs
incorporating magick into cooking is as easy as incorporating it into everyday life like cleaning, bathing etc…It is all about the intent and herbs you use. Just like anything these two days ended up going together. Because learning what herb properties do what and a lot are used in everyday cooking you can easily make your own blends for protection, luck, money, love etc. Kitchen witches have been using these methods forever, and even if you are not a kitchen witch you can incorporate them just as easily.
So using herbs and other ingredients you can easily make culinary blends that with intent when your cooking help you with what you need for example:
Love- A blend of Organic Sugar, Rose, Lavender, Orange Peel and Cinnamon to add a little sweetness and love energy to your baking or cooking. Can also be used to sweeten tea, sprinkled on breakfast items, and so much more!
Healing- A blend of Sea Salt, Rosemary, Calendula, Thyme, and Garlic to add some healing energy to your cooking. This blend goes GREAT in homemade chicken soup, when you have sick loved ones, and complements chicken dishes quite well.
Money- A blend of Organic Sugar, Chamomile, Cloves, Ginger and Nutmeg, to sweeten the prosperity energy in your life. Can be added to baking and cooking dishes, used to sweeten tea, or sprinkled on breakfast items. This blend also makes an AMAZING cider, when brewed with warm apple juice or cider (or even Mead, for a more adult drink!).
Protection- A blend of Sea Salt, Hawaiian Black Salt***, Sage, Dill, and Black Pepper, to add cleansing and protection energies to your recipes. This blend complements poultry and fish dishes quite well, as well as vegetable dishes (especially roasted root vegetables!).

These can be used even if your not a kitchen witch but want to add magic to your cooking, and you can make your blends using the first one for herbs and adding different salts like pink Himalayan sea salt or black salt which you can make yourself are always a good staple. Also, learn what herbs that can be used around kids and pregnant women because some are bad for either or both. I recommend Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, The Green Witch: Your Complete Guide to the Natural Magic of Herbs, Flowers, Essential Oils, and More, Alchemy of Herbs, The Encyclopedia of Herbs and Spices are just some that have a lot of knowledge in them and good reference points or books on kitchen witchcraft are good buys as they will have recipes, guides and how to’s in them.
Teas are also a way to incorporate magick as well because they are a good drink any time of day when you may need help with something specific. This area does require a little homework, but I promise it will go a long way. I love incorporating herbs and spices into our dishes for relaxation, protection, love or money depending on what my family needs at that moment. I love hot tea to help with a cold, or if I am having a psychic block a good psychic tea helps remove that or one that promotes creativity when I am feeling creatively stuck. Herbs, magick, and cooking all have their place, and I try to incorporate it as much as possible into everyday life as it brings me joy knowing I am.
