Magical Herbalism: Plant Potions & Flying Ointments - Workshop
Sunday, Oct 9, 5-7pm
with Raphael Zahavah
(early bird pricing thru 9/25)
Discover the powerful spirits behind the poisonous plant folklore of European witchcraft. Many of the people burned as witches were actually midwives, healers, and herbalists – their secrets lost and distorted through the lens of history. This workshop will provide an introduction to some of the lore surrounding magical plants and a guided journey to meet the spirit present in these protective plant allies. We will finish by making a safe herbal salve or “witches flying ointment” for spirit work that you can take home and try out yourself! All supplies provided and all experience levels welcome.
This workshop will:
- Explore lore around European plant magic, green witchcraft, and poisonous plants
- Include a guided plant journey to connect to the spirit of a plant ally
- Make an herbal potion that you can take home to use for your own spiritual practices
