Embark on your foraging journey and cultivate a more meaningful, magical relationship with nature.
No matter where you live, natural resources are all around you. These pieces of nature hold inherent properties—and inherent magic—that could be useful to you, and they are often hiding in plain sight.
In this book, divided into chapters by season, you'll find:
- Tips for foraging correctly, mindfully, and sustainably
- Instructions for teas, balms, decoctions, and other herbal remedies made out of foraged ingredients and materials
- Wildcrafts for rituals that usher in the new season, inspired by mystical folk practices around the world
With practical advice for novice foragers and sidebars on how different cultures have connected with the greatest mystic of all, Mother Earth, Enchanted Foraging explores plants and their various uses not just for consumption but for their intrinsic value. Readers will come away with a more complete knowledge of, and appreciation for, the world that lies just beyond their doors--its abundance, hidden applications, and how it makes enchanted beings of us all.
