A most excellent subject!
The practice of kitchen witchcraft is most often defined as an incorporation of magical, ritual activities into everyday housekeeping chores. As is usual in witchcraft, the particulars are up to every practitioner: whether we do more witchcraft than chores, or vice versa, whether we treat the chore as a magical rite (though never a magical rite as a chore!), or devise a special ritual that incorporates the housekeeping… whatever we do is up to us because it is our home.
Personally, I am a very practical witch: You may have noticed there’s far more cooking here than spells. I like my activities to be useful, and to result in more than purely ritualistic satisfaction. Perhaps that’s why there are no crystals hanging from variously coloured threads in my house. However, I do keep quite a bit of various herbal talismans.
The great thing about them is that they can be just as practically useful…
