I have identified with the term “kitchen witch” for some time now. Whenever I make a Magickal concoction, it’s done in the kitchen. I can identify with every item on this list…
1) we have a trash can, which I rarely filled, a recycling can, which I filled and emptied almost daily, and compost bin in the yard.
2) “waste not, want not”. Nothing in my house goes to waste. Even if it means scraps going to the animals, domestic or wild. We also have feeders. And spiders who keep to their areas are aloud to stay bc they pay rent in the form of insect control. And we catch and release spiders in the tarantula family.

I never used to think of myself as a kitchen witch, but more and more I find that the label seems to fit. Having been out of the professional workforce for right on a year now, I’ve spent a lot of time working on our home and our homelife, with one of the biggest changes being in how and what we eat. I’m making everything from scratch that I can now, with a list of things to try my hand at making as I can. As our food consumption migrated toward home, other things began to do the same, including many of my craft and online store projects. I make my sugar scrubs in the kitchen. I make my candles in the kitchen. I complete my polymer clay pieces in the kitchen. My kitchen happens to be the most natural-light lit room in the house and leads directly to the…
