Product description:

Jacki Smith, owner of Coventry Candles, one of the largest suppliers of magic candles in the U.S., has been crafting magic candles for more than twenty years. In Coventry Magic with Candles, Oils, and Herbs, she shares the history of candle magic along with the recipes, spells, and divinations anyone can use to increase love, prosperity, luck, and abundance.

Coventry Candle Magic is not your mama’s candle magic; this is candle magic for our complicated 21st century lives. Coventry Magic explores not only what color candle to use for a specific need but how to dig down deep inside and find out what that need really is.

So many times what we think is the problem is only the symptom of the bigger problem. Jacki Smith uses the humor of her own life experiences to show readers how to sort through the traps and tricks they’ve laid for themselves. Her self-evaluation system helps ferret out the underlying issues and beliefs that can often sabotage magical spells. The book helps readers get to the meat of issues and solve them in a magical, life-changing way.

Coventry Candle Magic will be an invaluable reference for beginners as well as experienced magic practitioners–the ultimate candle magic reference book.

The book features hundreds of candles and how to use them in a myriad of ways.

My thoughts:

Smith makes magic smart and sassy.I enjoyed every minute of it.

As is my usual habit, I like to thumb through the book before reading it. It isn’t uncommon for me to read the Notes, Sources, and Appendix before digging into a non-fiction book. How can you resist reading an Appendix with a title like “Is That a Rock in Your Pocket, or Are You Just Making Some Magic?”

I love Smith’s simple sassy style. The mechanics of magic are explained in a simple straight forward method. Her writing is stirring and motivational. I liked her “A Tip from Your Aunt Jacki” sections. This isn’t a book that will gather dust on a shelf. You will use this book, and use it often.

With chapters like “Here is where I Piss You Off” and “My Pipes are Clean,” I laughed and learned a lot.

A tip from Your Aunt Jacki
Know those methods like you know your porn collection, and all you have to do is think about them and they are immediately effective.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in magic.
