Rue, of Old Omen and Belle, of Belladonna & Bones are witches who like to get their hands dirty, to them magic is practical, visceral and bound in blood to the soil and bones of their spiritual allies.

Their aim with this podcast is to entice you to get your hands into the dirt and DO the work, MAKE magic, and feel the witchcraft in your bones.

Each month they will talk about a plant ally near and dear to them and invite you along as they work with the plant throughout the next Lunar cycle.

Books will be discussed but not left to gather dust, they’ll be put to work by our hosts and they will discuss what it’s like to bring these spells and rituals off the page and into your world.

We will spend the next Lunar cycle working with our chosen book & herb and we will report back on our findings but we want YOU to be involved, tell us about your experiences, join us and work with this months herb and book in your own practise.

Then let us know how you went!
