Magic of a Kitchen Witch

What in the world is a Kitchen Witch? It is a woman who places magic in every aspect of her home, everything from cooking to cleaning to decorating and gardening. She is the “Keeper of the Home” who ensures it remains safe, cleansed of negative energy and is nurtured on all levels.

A Kitchen Witch puts so much energy into her home that most of the time; the kitchen will be considered the “Heart of the Home”. Why the label of “Kitchen Witch” you ask? Well, I am not sure to be honest, that is just what I have always been called.

I cannot tell you how many times I have had people talk about the energy in my home and especially my kitchen. I love creating beautiful scented teas, beautiful colorful salads (often with edible flowers) and all of the trimmings for my guest. We sit and eat, talk and often laugh and time just fly’s away.

But really, none of that makes me a Kitchen Witch does it? Being a “Kitchen Witch” means that I put a lot of energy into everything I do in my home. If I bake bread, cake or even cut up a salad, I fill the food with an energy. I do the same thing that a person does when they place Reiki energy into something they are going to use for healing. Like I always say, many times we are talking about the same conversation; we are just using different words.

So instead of me trying to explain to you what a Kitchen Witch is, let me just share some of the things I do around my home to make the energy feel good.

Fairy Rose Cookies

Please try to only use roses you have grown in your yard, free of pesticide!!

Make an infusion of rosewater by using 2 tsp. dried rose petals (or a whole fresh rose head) and 1/4 cup distilled water. Let steep for approx. 30 minutes.

Mix together:

2 sticks softened margarine or butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt
2 Tablespoons of rose water
1 1/2 cups of Flour (add slowly)

The dough will be sort of stiff, which is okay. Chopped the soaked rose petals very fine and add to dough. Add 1/3 cup of Oats (optional). Mix well. Use a small scoop and put onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Magickal Properties: Purification, sleep, love, healing, luck, protection and divination

As I always say: "Life is filled with magick, if we allow our eyes to see it!"

The objective of sharing this recipe is the fact that everything we eat or drink has some kind of magical property in it. It does not matter if you believe in magic or not, the herbs, flowers, and ingredients will still be magical. The difference is, a “Kitchen Witch” realizes this and utilizes the properties to benefit her family and others.

I work with and use a lot of herbs in the foods and teas I make. I understand the healing properties of the herbs along with the magic they carry. I believe that is a key-since I believe in the magic of the herbs I understand how they work-so I feel comfortable working with them.

Herbs for Cleaning

Cleansing your home

Cleaning is a BIG deal to me.  I usually start my spring cleaning early because it takes me so long to do.  My main objective with my spring cleaning is clearing out all of the energy from the previous year.  I will clean one room at a time and by that I mean clean everything.  When I wash my rugs, curtains and table coverings, I will add lavender oil to the washer for purification, cleansing and protection.

I will take down every picture, windchimes and wash with a green cleaner mixed with a little Oakmoss and Rue to banishing any negative energy.

I love to save rainwater especially from a good storm and add some Vetivert and Lavender and wash my floors to remove anything negative and to purify my home with clean blessed energy.

Smudging my home has always been important to me.  I was taught that White Sage acts as the warrior and drives all negative energy out of your home.  Then follow with some sweetgrass to invite good energies.

You can burn black candles along with white candles to balance out the energies in your home.

You can purchase inexpensive spray bottles and mix up some sprays for blessing, or cleansing your home by using some distilled water and/or rain water with a little essential oil in it.

The list is endless of the things you can do around your home to feel safer and have good energies.  Scott Cunningham has a fantastic book called “Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs”.  This is a book that I believe every home should have. 

This will help you understand a little better

Do you believe by adding your energy to something you are baking it could be considered magic?
