The House Witch is an alternative spirituality book for those interested in exploring energies of the hearth and the home. It is written in an easy-to-read format, and I would describe this as an overview of some age-old traditions mixed with folklore and a sprinkle of magic.
Made up of quick chapters, the book covers a wide range of spiritual practices. I enjoyed reading about kitchen folklore, evaluating your home’s energies and some of the symbols and mythology chapters. My favourite pages were the ones about household deities and spirits and I recognised several of their names from fictional writing, for instance a Boggart and a Brownie.
This book was given to me as a fun gift from a friend which I enjoyed, but I don’t think it would be of much use to someone who already has a serious interest in modern witchcraft.
