Over the years, Wiccan High Priestess Marilyn Daniel has collected hundreds of recipes for her craft. Responding to repeated requests for her secrets, she has compiled them here for the first time in this comprehensive reference of more than 400 magical tips and recipes - covering everything from beauty treatments to healing salves to tasty treats. In addition to advice for buying, storing, and blending essential oils (always stir clockwise), Marilyn reveals her secrets for making incense, bath salts, soaps, ointments, potpourri, ink, and more. Readers will learn how to make a Tuberose Bouquet for attracting love and Air Oil for clear thinking and overcoming addiction, as well as how to incorporate their pets into spellcraft.

Kitchen Witchery includes a wide variety of cookies, breads, wines, and other magical foods, and Marilyn serves up her famous recipes for goodies like Sabbat Cakes and Wiccan Handfasting Cake, and drinks such as Nettle Ale and the Milk of Isis. And should a witch find herself in the middle of a recipe with a missing ingredient, she can find a worthy substitute in the extensive list provided. Kitchen Witchery also includes a helpful reference list of magical correspondences and a glossary of herbs and their folk names.

Just from looking through the preview of the first 20 pages I can see that Marilyn Daniel has copied entire recipes... word for word from Scott Cunningham's, The Complete Book of Incense, Oils, and Brews. As I sit here I am literally going page by page through my copy of Cunningham's book and even the description of how to use the oils is the exact same as his... It's terrible that a classic and noteworthy book such as Scott Cunningham's is being ripped off and no credit is being given whatsoever... If you are looking for a good book with lots or tips and recipes go for the original!

Do not encourage this author to "copy" more books.
If you have read "Incense, Oils & Brews" by Scott Cunningham, you will come to realise that large chunks of this book are identical to what Scott
Cunningham wrote, some sentences were copied word for word! Even the recipes and the instructions are identical.
Should Marilyn F Daniel get the credit for copying a book that was originally written by Scott Cunningham without giving him the credit???
I think Scott Cunningham needs the credit for his work, don't you?
So why not buy his book instead and let fraudulent copies burn to ashes!
