Blackthorn's Protection Magic - A Witch’s Guide to Mental and Physical Self-Defense

A hands-on guide to protection magic-using essential oils, incense, spells, and tarot from a beloved and trusted authority.

Blackthorn's Protection Magic guides readers through the realm of the green witch to a glade filled with options for your protection. Amy Blackthorn discusses spiritual, emotional, and physical security in an easy-to-understand way. The book provides an overview of what protection means to witches and then explores practices in more depth, including:

  • Essential oils for protection magic
  • The role plant allies play in both protecting and healing
  • What tarot can teach us about our strengths and weaknesses
  • Oracle spell work as a potent source of protection

As a witch who has worked in executive security for nearly fifteen years, Amy possesses the botanical spirit of an animist witch, able to see the inherent spirit in plants, as well as a keen eye on ways to make a home feel safer and more secure, on the magical and the mundane levels. For example, holly trees provide magical protection from lightning, but also make a prickly barrier outside the home to keep burglars from lurking in the shadows.

Excellent resource

I have read many books that contained chapters on protection magic and at least two other books where the topic was the sole focus. I have read blog posts, watched YouTube videos, participated in both in-person and online discussions on the topic. But I have yet to encounter anyone who includes physical self-defense. This book takes everything you know about protection magic, turns it on it's head, shakes it up like a snowglobe, then sets it on it's feet and presents the information in a way you may not have already considered.

This book offers not only practical advice but insight into protection from someone who literally specializes in it. I also appreciated color magic from the perspective of protection. It is something that, once you read through it, seems rather logical but honestly I didn't consider any color other than black for protection previously. I am still learning about herbs and the section "Gardening for Protection" was really helpful.
