Beauty creates so many emotions within us, and emotion is one of the driving forces of change in our world. When we seek to manifest, we call upon emotion, will, intent, and practicality to create something new in the world, and whether you call constituents energy or catalysts, adding extra items to your spells and prayers helps tune in our intentions.
Today, we’re focusing on Kitchen Witchcraft, or food-based intention setting. As humans, we first eat with our eyes, so when we see a beautiful dish presented in front of us, we immediately feel and are immediately driven to change. Adding flowers as a garnish or an ingredient serves to provide visually-inspired change and energetically-inspired change!
Next time you’re cooking up love spells, friendship spells, success spells, and more in the kitchen, add these edible flowers to your magickal working!
