When one cooks a meal for one’s family simply to meet the deadline of the hour and gives no notice as to how it is prepared or who it is for, one misses an opportunity to bless their home and loved ones. When one takes that opportunity to hum a happy tune, prepare favorite foods, make the meal a special time one instills Magick into every nourishing bite. Imbuing sustenance with good flavor, solid nutrition and joy, one may be a Kitchen Witch! The complex art of cuisine or exotic dishes isn’t necessary, one can accomplish great things with a simple soup, a sandwich, a salad – anything… so long as it is done with good intention and the will to provide nourishment for the body and soul. Keeping a Kitchen with happiness and focused intent can also spill over into how the cupboards are kept, how the dishes are cleaned and arranged, how the herbs from the garden are hung and dried, decorations and color all add the the way the Kitchen Witch blesses the home and family.
In celebration of the Kitchen Witch, I have created the Kitchen Witch Pentacle. It creates the star symbolizing the balance of the elements formed by the tools of the Kitchen: The blade, the spoon, the broom, the herb and the candle. En-circled by grape vines, this heavy 2 inch Pentacle may be worn as an amulet or hung in the kitchen as a ward and blessing.
