Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I'm new to witchcraft and it's full of reading- everyone I meet tells me to read, read, read. From my reading I knew I was more interested in crystal magic. I wanted something that went a little deeper than crystal properties. I needed something that would give me insight into how to actually know what I'm doing. This was the perfect book for what I was looking for!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I recently started my journey with crystals so I am always looking at books to find ones that are good resources and organized well. Kitchen Witchcraft; Crystal Magic is one such book......All of the information that Rachel Patterson includes is wonderful, and I can see long time crystal users picking up some new tips and information. After the introduction to crystals, Patterson has so much more information to share including; Cleansing Crystals, Crystals and Full Moons, Meditating with Crystals, Crystal Bling, Using Crystals with Poppets, Witch Bottles, and Mojo Bags, and so much more.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I am fairly new to crystals and this was really well written and informative. Easy to follow for a novice like me!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. If you are curious about crystals and want to know more this is a great introduction. The first part of the book gives a lot of helpful information on the various uses of crystals and how to get started. The next section of the book gives a great breakdown of stones by birthstone, zodiac, even days of the week! Very helpful for augmenting your crystal work and tailoring to specific applications! The rest of the book, and my particular favorite is going into details on the various crystals, properties, planet, meanings and suggested cleansing methods. While I view this as a reference book, about the last 20% is the authors “lists” which I loved! If you are focused on certain outcomes or characteristics they are broken down alphabetically and include a list of stones support each outcome. Overall, this book has many practical uses for the curious or those who have started collecting or looking to collect crystals with the intent of enhancing their own lives.
A wonderful guide to the world of crystals, with everything you need whether you're a new witch, an experienced practitioner, or just want something pretty to put in your home. I think my favourite thing about Rachel's books is how she continually emphasis that her experience is hers and the reader should do what feels right for them. It's hard to pick one favourite thing, though, because this book is filled with brilliant things. I can definitely see myself returning to it to look things up or prepare spells or cleanse crystals.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this book as a lot of other books of a similar genre are a bit too "out there" - I was very pleasantly surprised. The style of writing is very honest, down to earth and sometimes very humorous; not at all airy fairy as I was expecting. I would highly recommend this book as it is very informative with lots of excellent things to try and very easy to read and absorb the contents.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I feel as if this book was created to give you a better understanding of how to have a personal relationship with your crystals. Kitchen Witchcraft: Crystal Magic, by Rachel Patterson is a wonderful book full of helpful tips on taking care of your crystals as individual energy sources. This book is very useful for spell crafting and meditation... The back of the book is an alphabetical list of crystals, their energy, element, planet and zodiac association.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. Having read the majority of Rachel's books I knew even before reading this one that it would be good. Full of great advice and helpful ideas along with so much information on crystals with how to cleanse then, what to use them for and how to get the best from them. Definitely a book you will go back to again and again for reference.
