RITUAL, CELEBRATION, AND LORE
by Shawn Engel
A fascinating and enlightening celebration of mushrooms and the magic of the forest for those who revel in mushroom imagery and lore.
Mushrooms—as a decorative element, as a signifier of the mystery of the forest, and as an adorable emblem of witchy cottagecore dreams—have proliferated in the collective consciousness as of late. Mushroom Magick is a whimsical collection of mushroom facts and fables divided into three sections: first, profiles of 22 well-known mushrooms include information on biology and common uses as well as a rundown of their energetic properties and suggestions for incorporating them into spellwork. Section two provides a world-spanning collection of mushroom myths and fables. The final section is a taste of the spells and rituals that you can perform with common mushrooms such as creminis, shiitakes, and portobellos—carved candles, floor washes, teas, and even some yummy meals can improve your love life, super-charge your good fortune, or even cast a well-deserved hex upon your most hated enemy.
