"A hands-on guide to protection magic using essential oils, incense, spells, and tarot from a beloved and trusted authority, Blackthorn's Protection Magic guides readers through the realm of the green witch to a glade filled with options for your protection. Amy Blackthorn discusses spiritual, emotional, and physical security in an easy-to-understand way. The book provides an overview of what protection means to witches and then explores practices in more depth, including:
Essential oils for protection magic
The role plant allies play in both protecting and healing
What tarot can teach us about our strengths and weaknesses
Oracle spell work as a potent source of protection
As a witch who has worked in executive security for nearly fifteen years, Amy possesses the botanical spirit of an animist witch, able to see the inherent spirit in plants, as well as a keen eye on ways to make a home feel safer and more secure, on the magical and the mundane levels. For example, holly trees provide magical protection from lightning, but also make a prickly barrier outside the home to keep burglars from lurking in the shadows."
