I really liked the layout and flow of this book. The illustrations were beautiful - this is great for a newbie and everything wasn't over complication with ingredients. I liked that it also provided additional recommended readings and online resources to continue to practice.

Great for a beginner! The book goes through some simple spells, meditation, and a little on tarot and astrology. I definitely grabbed a couple spells to put in my book of shadows, and scribbled down the recommend reading in the back.

4/5 there's a lot on meditation, and I'm bad at it.

Firstly, I need to stress how beautiful the photography in this book is. The imagery in this book is stunning! Because of this, I think this would make a lovely gift.
The content in the book is really interesting, and I certainly learnt some new things and got some inspiration for magick. The book covers a broad range of topics so would be great for a beginner. However some of the spells are quite complex, so the book would also suit a more experienced witch.
Think there's a lot to take away from this book no matter what your experience.
I really enjoyed it.

The pages inside the book have beautiful art and pictures. It offers ways to connect with your body and spirit. The images are truly beautiful, the book includes recipes, potions and recommendations. I don’t think I will be using this book; however, it was great to have to opportunity to read it and see the imagery.

This isn't the sort of thing I normally pick up but it's always been something I have had an interest in so as a beginner not knowing much at all I found this book a great place to start and really enjoyed reading it.

This was a great book - really simple and easy to follow along with for beginners. I wish there were more books like this when I was starting my path 15 years ago. So well written.

I found so much to love in Theodosia Corinth’s Witch’s Complete Guide to Self-Care that I would recommend this book to anyone, witch or not. Firstly, she gives caring consideration to how the daily wear of the world manifests in our lives, from fatigue and fragility to disconnection and anxiety. We’re not all just “stressed,” and I applaud the space she dedicates to identifying how one is specifically feeling. She reminds us that self-care at its best is “meant to build resilience, fortify the spirit, and help us better serve one another.” And then she drops the word ‘bibliomancy.’ Love. There’s a constant feeling of authenticity in this book – not dimestore pop psychology passing as meaningful guidance. Corinth writes compassionately, constructively, accessibly – and with a focus on intention. Highlights for me were her reframing exercise as “body practice,” the section on Intuition, the entire chapters on Space & Energy and Connecting with Community, and an underlying reverence for nature. She delivers instruction with thoughtful context, and the gorgeous imagery included brings her words magically to life.

I received a digital pre-publication copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review – and loved it so much that I also purchased a physical copy for my own collection.
