How Do You Become a Real Kitchen Witch?

Kitchen Witchery is catching on in recent years as a "new" magical path, but it’s probably one of the oldest types of magic known. To understand this, simply imagine some ancient woman steeping herbs for remedies or offering thanks to the spirit of the animal that she’s preparing as food—sprinkling salt across the threshold to ward off evil spirits and stoking the sacred hearth fires as she invokes a Goddess for blessings. Imagine a woman who helps the community with her skills and passes her ways down to her daughter: this is "Kitchen Witch Eve."

So, how do you adopt this lifestyle? "I want to become a Witch," "I wish to become a good Witch," or "I wish to learn Witchcraft," you say . . . but before you start on this path, it is important to establish a foundation. If you are a beginner, I suggest you read my article that offers spells and exercises on how to practice witchcraft for beginners. In addition, we will discuss the following important topics:

What Is a Kitchen Witch?

The Kitchen Witch is the ultimate domestic diva, enchantress of the hearth and home, and magical master of their domain. To be a Kitchen Witch means one practices Kitchen Witchcraft, also known as Cottage Witchcraft, which combines hearth and home with magic and enchantment. It’s not very ceremonial in nature, but it is a wonderful way to bring magic into everyday life. It’s about putting that spark of magic into everything, including domestic duties. With this type of living, the lines between the magic and the mundane are blurred as the Witch brings magic into everyday life and everyday chores.

10 Steps: How to Become a Kitchen Witch

The following suggestions will help guide you as you develop your inner Kitchen Witch. These tips are perfect for beginners.

1. Live in the Present Moment

Live in the present moment. This suggestion can benefit anyone from any walk of life, but it is especially important for balance, grounding, and wellness. Become mindful and make yourself present in the moment as you're going about your housekeeping, cooking, and chores. Become aware of the magic and energy going on in the moment.

2. Study Magic

Begin studying magic, particularly green magic, folk magic, and energy work. All magic is rooted in the same theories and works on the same principles, it just largely depends on how you wish to exercise it. For instance, many Witches time their spells with the phases of the moon and moon signs.

3. Tidy Your Space

Start cleaning up your home and garden. It doesn’t have to be a showplace, but it should be a space that makes you feel warm and comfortable and inviting. Your home is your own little sanctuary in this big old world. Light some incense or make your own, and place objects with magical energy around your magical kitchen and the rest of your home. Maybe you'd even like to create a sense of community and open your space up to family, friends, and Witches to feel welcome. Some Kitchen Witches even turn to feng shui principles—literally translating to "wind" and "water"—to help establish a good energy flow throughout their living space.

4. Start a Garden

Start planting a garden. No land? No problem—I don't have land but I still grow a luscious herb garden. I keep a few dozen pots on wire shelving or hanging from hooks around the perimeter of a big screen porch with southern exposure. I grow lots of herbs, flowers, houseplants, and even a nice little salad garden of tomato, cucumber, peppers, lettuce, spinach, squashes, and the like. These are mostly planted in old storage containers, coffee cans, and butter tubs. Even if all you have is a sunny windowsill, there is a way to have just a few herbs.

Tip: If you can’t have a garden, collect dry herbs or purchase them in bulk from the local farmer’s market.

5. Appreciate Your Food

Foster an attitude of gratitude for your food. Give thanks not just at harvest festivals, but for every little meal and snack. You can do this by thanking the spirit of the animals and plants that you consume. Be aware of their power and energy that you are taking into your body as you eat your delicious meals. Every plant and living creature puts effort into growing and producing, so as you consume your food, appreciate the energy that went into their existence.

6. Connect With the Animals and Plants

As a Kitchen Witch, you will want to connect to animals and plants on a spiritual level. Stop thinking of them as lower life forms and start celebrating them as spiritual beings in their own right. Learn to listen, to read their signs, to communicate, and learn their lessons. Whether you are interacting with wildlife and wild plants or domesticated species—your pets, your herbs, your garden—see them as enlightened, bright beings, show them respect, and offer them love, compassion, and understanding.

7. Cook

Cooking is a big part of Kitchen Witchery. Be it cooking up a spoonful of simmering bone broth, preparing a recipe of carrot soup fresh from the garden, baking an olive oil crust made of fresh eggs from your chickens, or simply boosting your coffee with cinnamon and coconut oil—food is magic and each meal can be used for healing.

Simply charge your herbs and ingredients and imbue your food with your magical desires before consuming (the intention must be behind it). As you use your mortar and pestle, focus your intentions on the herbs as you prepare them. As you boil and stir your ingredients over an hearth fire, infuse them with magic. As you boil water for your tea, add spices with known magical benefits.

8. Study Herbs

Begin learning some herbal remedies. Many of these ritual remedies have been studied and used for years. Do note that I wouldn’t rush off and treat serious conditions on your own without your doctor’s care or approval, and keep in mind that even culinary herbs in large doses can be very dangerous. But you can start with some simple things like making poultices for bruises, salves for bee stings, or lotions for skin irritations.

Even seemingly mundane ingredients have healing properties and the Kitchen Witch knows this—from aloe vera to cinnamon, keep jars of culinary ingredients handy and learn the difference between medicinal (topical, etc.) and/or edible herbs that are used for healing. Consider studying independently or entering a program that offers certifications in herbalism.

9. Go Organic

Start to shift to a more organic way of life. Move away from the excess, the waste, the chemicals, and the poisons of irresponsibly produced products. Start recycling and reusing things, begin composting for your garden, and use herbs to create your own all-natural cleaning supplies.

Go organic and get grounded.

10. Think Magically

Begin to think magically in everything you do. When you stoke the fire or cook over the stove, when you shower and do the dishes, when you turn on the fan or dig in the garden, give praise to the spirits of the elements. When you cook, don’t just follow a recipe—turn it into a spell and charge that food or drink with the energy of that which you want to work toward. When you do your spring cleaning, perform it with reverence as a purification of your temple. Don’t just suck up the dust bunnies under the bed with your vacuum—banish these negative entities from your life.

Before you know it, you won’t be looking at the calendar wondering when the next Esbat is or thinking about stopping by that New Age store for some spell components or ritual tools. Everything in your life becomes part of your magical endeavors, and this can bring an abundance of blessings and joy.

Who Can Be a Kitchen Witch?

The short answer is that anyone can be a Kitchen Witch. Kitchen Witches often practice what has been passed down to them through the family line or, if they're lucky, by a mentor. Many Kitchen Witches these days are self-taught as well because we now have access to books and the internet, which allows us to meet and speak freely with one another instead of hiding.

Is There a Rule About Religion?

Kitchen Witches can be of any religion: Wicca, Christian, Jewish, New Age, Unitarian Universalist . . . there are no rules about religion. A lot of Kitchen Witches these days are some kind of Pagan because Pagan religions usually embrace magic as part of nature and part of life. There are some Kitchen Witches who don’t practice any specific religion—they just follow their own path, marching to the beat of their own spiritual drum.

Can Men Be Kitchen Witches?

You don’t have to be a full-time housewife to be a Kitchen Witch, and you certainly don’t need to be a woman. Kitchen Witches have traditionally been female, but there isn’t a rule about this—it simply turned out this way because up until recent decades, it was the woman who tended the home and kept the hearth fires burning. Men can be Kitchen Witches just as easily. It all comes down to being a lover of the home and wanting to bring magic into your everyday, ordinary life.

Where Do They Live?

Kitchen Witches are generally associated with the countryside—the image of one might conjure up some small village or some cabin way out in the woods somewhere. But city slickers like myself can also apply the concepts of Kitchen Witchery to an urban lifestyle. It doesn’t matter whether you live in an old, rustic cabin or rent a condo on 5th Avenue in Manhattan . . . you work with the home you have.

How Old Are They?

Kitchen Witches can be old or young. With old-time folk magicians, children (particularly girls) would be trained in both the domestic and the magical arts from a very young age. By doing so, adding a little energy or casting a spell over any working becomes second nature.

What Things Might a Kitchen Witch Do?

Now that we've learned all about the Kitchen Witch way of being, here are some habits, practices, and rituals that you can consider incorporating in your day to day.

  • Enchant herbs before sprinkling them over a meal, bringing blessings to the family.
  • Make herbal oils and tonics, charging them by candlelight to use for healing, protection, blessing the home, cleaning, or polishing woodwork—all in a day’s work.
  • Make a magically prepared cup of tea. A cup of tea is never just tea—it’s a ritual, it’s a brew, and it’s been prepared with intention.
  • Make a poultice of mugwort or a salve of basil and honey. If someone gets a minor boo-boo, don't necessarily run to the drug store—run to the garden. As you prepare it as medicine, chant to invoke a spirit or deity to assist with healing.
  • Garden by the moon signs or plant crystals in the soil to help give the plants a boost.
  • Thank the plants for their sacrifice when harvesting from them. Leave the plants small gifts and offerings.
  • Add a handful of salt and a few drops of sage oil into the wash water to cleanse and purify clothing (or for use on the floor, the bathroom, or the windows).
  • Leave charmed bags, Witch's ladders, or symbols around the home to draw good luck and prosperity.
  • Add dried rosemary to the pillow stuffing to ward off nightmares and bring happy dreams.
  • Throw salt over your shoulder when spilled or blow a loose eyelash off your hand to make a wish.

Why the Home Is the Kitchen Witch's Temple

The home is the Kitchen Witch’s temple. The heart of the inner temple is the kitchen, and the heart of the outer temple is the garden. Some Kitchen Witches like to set up a shrine or working altar in the kitchen or the garden where they can cast spells or honor their deities, but not all.

In general, the working counters and tables are your altars. Your cutting knives are your athame (ritual knife), your pots are your cauldrons, and the wooden spoon you stir the soup with is your wand. You don’t actually need anything more formal than that.

The home is seen not just as a physical house but a spiritual temple of sorts—a type of monastery where you will live your spiritual life day in, day out. Because of this, a Kitchen Witch tends to strive to keep the home and garden in good order. She (or he) takes pride in keeping a warm and happy home infused with magic.

      Hi Roze; It's very clunky to say 'he or she' or 'him or her' in writing. Any kind of Witchcraft could certainly be studied and applied by people of either gender, so choice of going with 'he' or 'she' in any of my articles is not meant to imply that it is relevant to only one gender.

      Thanks for your comment! ~Sage

      This article had a lot of gendered language, it felt implied that only a woman could be a kitchen witch and that's a very outdated view.

      This is having an awareness of the sacramental nature of everything you do and everything that is. The Creatrix (or Creator) is everything and all doings, and to remember that all is sacramental and to be handled and viewed and treated and done reverently is...um...just what you do.

      I wish I could do this. Instead I find my mind running along more negative paths while I go about my daily...um...activities. I'll have to work on this.

      Wonderful stuff. I fear I'm no witch, though; kitchen or otherwise. With everything that's been going on with us, I'm pretty drained and low on energy. I barely get the minimum housework done to maintain a healthful home--the rest gets deferred. And I'm not a lover of cooking, either; it's just something we have to do to stay fed and healthy. It's never been my favorite pastime. Ironically, I have a gourmet-quality kitchen. When we remodeled, I designed it that way, not because I love to cook, but because it is efficient, and gets me in and out quickly. LOL

      Voted up, interesting, awesome and beautiful.
