Follow These Tips for a "Practical Magic" Summer

Let me guess, you put the lime in the coconut?

The 1998 film Practical Magic starred a delightful Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman as a pair of sister witches, raised by their madcap witchy aunts (a delightful Dianne Wiest and Stockard Channing) and fighting against the bounds of a centuries-old love curse. It’s based on an even more delightful novel of the same name by Alice Hoffman. I highly recommend both. But if you’re already a fan, like me, and you want to bring a little bit of that “coastal grandmother” meets herbal witch into your life, watch this video for tips.


In this video, TikTok witch @spellcraftstudios lays out the guidelines for bringing a touch of natural, plant-based magic into your life this season. Suggestions include everything from painting your nails green and wearing gemstones that manifest the qualities you are looking to cultivate, to eating berries off the vine and burying your feet in the sand.

“Get your herb garden set up so you can make teas and tinctures, and forage whenever possible,” she advises, picking flowers and popping fresh raspberries in her mouth. “Give thanks to all that mother nature provides, especially things that are edible.”

To be perfectly honest, this video makes me want to run off to some beach in New England to walk barefoot rocky shores and stomp through the woods in floaty dresses and rubber boots.
