I gave Herbal Magic by Aurora Kane 3 stars because this book is really only intended for a very specific audience. There is no practical knowledge here regarding herbs, and though the author included some history, there is little to no reasoning provided for why certain meanings have been assigned to specific herbs.
The narrative came across as a bit woo-woo, with rhymes, flowery language, and over description.
The herbs were described as being intertwined with Astrology for reasons I found unclear, and overall, I don’t think this is going to be a very useful book to those that have a practical mindset towards their practice of witchcraft.
