Kitchen Witchcraft: Getting Started

Are you interested in kitchen witchcraft? Kitchen witchery is a lot of fun and allows me to work protection and healing into my family’s food with love.

This quick guide will help you get started with kitchen witchery to help bring a little more magic to your every day.

What is a kitchen witch?

A kitchen witch is a type of witch who practices magic primarily in the kitchen, using food and cooking utensils as tools in their spells and rituals. Kitchen witches often focus on creating nourishing meals and using herbs and other natural ingredients to promote health and well-being.

They may also incorporate elements of traditional folk magic and superstitions into their practices, such as using garlic to ward off negative energy or placing a broom by the door to sweep away negative influences.

The term “kitchen witch” can also be used more broadly to refer to anyone who enjoys cooking and sees it as a form of magic or spiritual practice, even if they don’t identify as a witch.

Tips for kitchen witches

Set intentions for your cooking: When preparing a meal, think about what kind of energy and intention you want to infuse into the food. You can use herbs and spices with specific properties, such as rosemary for protection or cinnamon for love.

Use your senses: Pay attention to how the food looks, smells, and tastes as you prepare it. This can help you to connect with the energy of the food and make adjustments as needed.

Practice mindfulness: Cooking can be a meditative practice that helps you to connect with the present moment. Focus on the task at hand and let go of any distractions or worries.

Keep a well-stocked pantry: Make sure to keep a variety of herbs, spices, and other ingredients on hand for cooking and spell work. This can include staples like garlic and onion, as well as more specialized ingredients like dragon’s blood resin or angelica root.

Cleanse your kitchen: Before beginning any spell work or cooking, take a moment to cleanse your kitchen space. You can burn sage or palo santo, sprinkle salt, or use any other method that resonates with you.

Experiment with recipes: Cooking can be a form of creative expression, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors and ingredients. You can also adapt traditional recipes to suit your own preferences and intentions.
