Herbal Books for the Green Witch

I haven’t used any other herbal book more than this one. Scott Cunningham is a well-known Wiccan author and this book will demonstrate why. An indelible reference for the green witch to always have on-hand.
2. 20,000 Secrets of Tea
Another of my must-have herbal reference books, 20,000 Secrets of Tea makes it easy to concoct magical teas for medicine and everyday use. I can’t tell you how many times I referred to this book by Victoria Zak.

This new herbal guide by Maia Toll and Kate O’Hara will have you gawking at the beautiful artwork. 36 bewitching botanicals are detailed within.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Witching Herbs by Harold Roth. Not only does he discuss the magic of each herb, but also goes into detail about their lore and history. A must-have on the green witch bookshelf.
5. The Complete Book of Incense, Oils, and Brews
Another of Cunningham’s books – The Complete Book of Incense, Oils, and Brews gives easy-to-use incense recipes, oil mixtures, and brews for various magical intentions as well as to honor different deities.

The green witch should know how to use herbs for magic but also for healing. Rosemary Gladstar’s books are a wonderful place to start learning the healing effects of herbs.
Tree Magic and Ogham
1. The Magic of Trees
The Magic of Trees by Tess Whitehurst will teach you about the magical properties of trees and how to utilize tree magic in your practice. Often green witches attach to herbs but forget the power of the trees!

One of the first books I picked up on tree magic by Sandra Kynes is a must-have for the green witch.

Danu Forest guides us into the magical forest of the Druids and teaches us about the Ogham sacred tree alphabet in Celtic Tree Magic.

A compendium of stories about Irish fairies, Meeting the Other Crowd by Eddie Lenehan is intriguing and hard to put down!
4. The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries
The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries by W.Y. Evans-Wentz is a timeless fairy book from the early twentieth century that every green witch should read. It gives an idea as to how the belief in fairies was widespread over the continent of Europe. Even my kids love hearing the fairy stories in this book!

Green Witch Youtube Channels
I’ve already mentioned her blog, but you MUST check out her YouTube channel too! She’s also on patreon and shares quite a bit of her herbal and magical knowledge to paying patrons there.
I’m dying to take a tour with Green Dean from Eat the Weeds YouTube Channel! He does wild herb and edible plant tours in the Southeastern United States. His videos are super informative and great for foraging green witches!
A wise Irish woman with a love for the earth, this is one YouTube channel you need to subscribe to.
4. Asia Suler
I’ve contacted Asia on a few occasions and never received a reply. In spite of this, I still watch her YouTube channel because of her calm demeanor and herbal knowledge.
