Book Review: Magical Housekeeping

Magical Housekeeping: Simple Charms and Practical Tips for Creating a Harmonious Home by Tess Whitehurst

This book was a touch too "fluffy bunny" for me. Anytime a book tells me to envision pink light filled with rainbow sparkles shooting from my hands, I tend to go "wait, what?" but it did have some redeeming qualities! There's a very good chapter on aromatherapy, with recipes for combining essential oils with rose water into mists to spritz around your home. There are interesting tidbits scattered throughout the book on getting rid of clutter, using incense and statuary to good effect, cultivating houseplants, and other interesting bits. There's a ritual for blessing your broom (or vacuum!)

Chapters include Clutter Clearing, Cleaning, Space Clearing, Harmonious Positions, The Three Secrets Empowerment, Gemstones, Plant Allies, Animal Allies, Sacred Smoke & Aromas of Power, and Blessings, Protections & Other Rituals.

Overall, I'd say unless you get a good deal on it, don't buy this book, but it might be worth a read.
