Baba Yaga’s Book of Witchcraft is an exciting book of ancient Slavic magical practices. In this book, you’ll sit at Baba Yaga’s side and listen to her stories about the birth of the sun, the land of the blessed ones, and the spirits that live right beside us. More importantly, you’ll learn the secrets of her magic―crafts, talismans, inscriptions, incantations, and rituals that will allow you to discover your own Baba Yaga within.
Each chapter develops the fairytale of Vasylyna―the girl who is sent to the frightful witch―and Baba Yaga herself narrates explanations of folk lore represented in the tale. Author Madame Pamita completes each chapter by sharing how to put the elder-witch’s wisdom into practice, with instructions for Ukrainian folk embroidery, weaving wreaths from herbs, using magical poppets, and working with the spirits of the forest, the hearth, and the sauna. With more than fifty illustrations and a bounty of tips and information, this book teaches you to embrace the beauty and power of these traditional practices as you learn to reclaim your personal magic.

This is an amazing book that is wholly unique. It guides you as if Baba Yaga is really talking to you, and it is so truthful, engaging, and snarky. The wealth of empowering magick you learn chapter by chapter is incredible. We need this kind of wisdom so badly now, and the work is a gift of art and soul.

I was overcome with emotion when I got my package and opened up the box. Everything was just wonderful and so in tune with what I was feeling and needing at that point I truly felt like it was divine ✨️. I know that you probably put a small gift in people’s orders all the time but the specific tea was perfect and the inscription was on point. Regardless of whether you know me or not, you knew what I needed and I thank you from the core of my spirit. I cherish my first edition autographed copy as one of my most precious possessions. I look forward to the next episode of Baba Yaga’s magic and I wish you a warm blessing of blessed life
