Witchcraft For Healing by Patti Wigington is an absolutely gorgeously crafted book. I found it to be well-written and designed, with clear sections that make it easy to look up the topics within.

Though relatively short, it covers a variety of healing and well-being based topics along with recipes and spellwork. There are some great exercises for centering yourself and dealing with negative emotions, and I don’t think you need to be a practitioner of witchcraft to benefit from them.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, I would certainly recommend it as a positive and calming read.
