Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
From the brilliant mind of the Druid, John Michael Greer, comes a fascinating encyclopedia of natural magick. This book will be an enjoyable addition to personal and public libraries. The book contains detailed instructions for preparing candles, amulets, soaps, potions, incense, and other items. It also serves as a guide to planting by the Moon and for harvesting magickal herbs.
John Michael Greer lives in southern Oregon and is the author of numerous books. He is a bishop in the Universal Gnostic Church, and a practitioner of Druidy and Hermetic magick. Among his many books is Monsters: An Investigator's Guide to Magical Beings.
The book is divided into three parts. Tables of Correspondences and their uses are discussed. Philosophy and practice is explained. Topics covered include amulets, sachets, potpourris, food, potions, baths, washes, fluid condensers, oils, scents, soaps, incense, candles, planting, among others. A bibliography is included at the conclusion of this fine book.
A splendid reference work, this book is one that makes for a nice, practical work to have on hand. It is concise, logical, and accurate.
One word sums up this book: Excellent. Highly recommended.
