Tending the Hearth and Home with the Magickal Energy of Hestia
The Scent of Lemon & Rosemary is a fabulous book of magickal spells, crafts, and recipes for each room of your house. Based on the powerful energy and mythos of the goddess Hestia, these magickal activities and workings can be practiced by anyone, regardless of spiritual orientation.
Magick themes and techniques abound—love and transformation in the kitchen, communication and friendship in the living room, purification and health in the bathroom, prosperity and sleep in the bedroom, and protection at the threshold. You will discover recipes for food magick as well as tips for creating your own green cleaning supplies. Author Raechel Henderson also includes hands-on exercises for connecting with Hestia as a deity of bodily autonomy, racial equity, and social justice.
Creating a harmonious environment that fosters feelings of acceptance, safety, and abundance is possible no matter what your living situation. With visualization, centering, grounding, and raising power, and tools like crystals and essential oils, this book guides you in balancing the energy of each room and turning your entire home into a sacred space.
