Vesticja Basta: A Witch's Garden (Paperback)
BASTA VESTICJA, or 'A Witch's Garden' is rich presentation of the occult properties and witchcraft lore of over 60 herbs and trees. Written by a modern practitioner and ethnologist, the book discusses the magical usages of herbs in healing, witchcraft, and shamanic trance, as well as the relation between spirits of the land and the plant powers accessed by the witch. Although the specific emphasis is on the occult traditions of the Balkans, most of the plants are found widely distributed across Europe, and contains information which has never been published elsewhere. Lavishly illustrated by artist Liv Rainey Smith with over 50 original botanical woodcuts specially commissioned for the project, BASTA VESTICJA is an engrossing book of plant lore that is both beautiful and informative.
