Review: Magical Healing: Folk Healing Techniques from the Old World

Magical Healing: Folk Healing Techniques from the Old World Magical Healing: Folk Healing Techniques from the Old World by Hexe Claire
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was told that my grandmother was a midwife/country doctor before medical doctors were readily available. I did know her very well as she was a very quiet woman and died when I was a teenager. Her medicinal art was not passed on to my mother and/or my aunts, so there are no records of her tools and remedies. I have been very curious to know more about folk remedies and was interested in reading Magical Healing: Folk Healing Techniques from the Old World by Hexe Claire to see if I could learn more about my grandmother's art. The book was not exactly what I expected. I was hoping for recipes using herbs, roots and other elements. This book deals with healing deities, spells, plants (no recipes), and magical stones. The information was very interesting and worth reading about.

I thank NetGalley and Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd. for this intriguing ARC. Magical Healing: Folk Healing Techniques from the Old World by Hexe Claire will be available at your favourite bookstore on July 8, 2018.
