Here is the first contemporary guide to the transformative powers of essential oils for use in spellcraft and the cultivation of ritual power. From rose-scented rosaries to the lingering aroma of frankincense, and the cleansing energy of white sage, Amy Blackthorn— the woman behind Blackthorn Hoodoo Blends —will take you on a journey beyond the soothing, healing power of scents into their hidden realms and their use in prayer, meditation, and shamanic journeying. One of the very first of its kind, this book includes:

  • The rich history and lore of scent-related magic
  • Over 135 essential oil recipes and craft projects
  • An explanation of how magical aromatherapy can enhance divination with tarot and runes
  • Practical information regarding the purchasing, blending, and storing of essential oils

Amy Blackthorn has been described as an “arcane horticulturalist” for her lifelong work with magical plants and teaching of Hoodoo. She incorporates her experiences in British Traditional Witchcraft with her horticulture studies. She has a certification in aromatherapy and is ordained through the Gryphon’s Grove School of Shamanism. Amy’s company, Blackthorn Hoodoo Blends, creates tea based on old Hoodoo herbal formulas. She lives in Delaware. Photo credit: Marisa Taylor Photography
