This is also the time I bring the last blooms of the season to my kitchen altar. Very little about my altar screams witch, but it is my place of celebrating & honoring the bounty in my life.
My kitchen altar sits on a shelf hovering over my medicine-making table. During medicine-making times I remove the mortar & pestle & place a Moon Goddess as the center piece, add incense & a lit candle. In the plate she holds, I can place a bit of medicinal herb as a representation of what is to be blessed.
Goddess presides over & blesses the medicine for my family, my friends & Mountain Gypsy Herbs stock. When not in her place of glory at the center of the altar, she sits in the medicine cabinet watching over a variety of herbs & remedies.
As a hidden witch, I need to get pretty creative in how I honor deity, I really haven't had many statues up until now. But...she called my name, so I brought her home.
Recently, I stumbled upon Confession of a Kitchen Witch's Kitchen Altar e-course. If you're new to creating a kitchen altar, it is a lovely start.
Wild & Bright Blessings,
