Summary

In Backwoods Witchcraft, Jake Richards offers up a folksy stew of family stories, lore, omens, rituals, and conjure crafts that he learned from his great-grandmother, his grandmother, and his grandfather, a Baptist minister who Jake remembers could "rid someone of a fever with an egg or stop up the blood in a wound." The witchcraft practiced in Appalachia is very much a folk magic of place, a tradition that honors the seen and unseen beings that inhabit the land as well as the soil, roots, and plant life.The materials and tools used in Appalachia witchcraft are readily available from the land. This "grounded approach" will be of keen interest to witches and conjure folk regardless of where they live. Readers will be guided in how to build relationships with the spirits and other beings that dwell around them and how to use the materials and tools that are readily available on the land where one lives.This book also provides instructions on how to create a working space and altar and make conjure oils and powders. A wide array of tried-and-true formulas are also offered for creating wealth, protecting one from gossip, spiritual cleansing, and more.

    This book is for everyone who desperately needs to find a way to cope with the jerks, the idiots and the terrible people in our lives. 
     
    The truth is, we’ve all got a little bit of jerk, idiocy and terribleness inside of us. The question is, just how much? Want to find out? Read this book. And maybe the even more important question; when we meet people who have a Chernobyl level of it all pumping through their veins, how are we supposed to deal with them?
     
    This is NOT a book for people who get offended easily. If you want to have some fun by exploring the inner, most dark thoughts we all have in our minds about how to deal with people who drive us crazy… then this book is for you. If you are bothered by those things, it’s probably best if you look for a book about unicorns and rainbows. Yes, you are better than us. 
     
    Have you ever felt yourself secretly wishing that the guy who cut you off in rush hour would spill boiling coffee in his lap and drive into a ditch? At any point in your life do you wonder how your co-worker managed to get the raise you deserved even though they are so obviously unqualified because they can’t even spell their own name correctly? Have you ever been perplexed why there are so many truly terrible people in the world who seem to exist just to mess with you?
     
    Told in a fun, conversational tone, you will gather an understanding of how the world, and humans, have raced to the bottom and how to free yourself from letting these jerks, idiots and terrible people control your life. 
     
    It’s gonna be a fun ride. You in? Coming, Valentines Day, 2020.

    The B-complex vitamins are a family of nutrients that play multifaceted and essential roles in health and preventing disease. They are needed to make and repair DNA and increase energy levels-both key steps for slowing the aging process. Some B vitamins are needed to make mood-enhancing neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, and can have powerful antidepressant benefits. The B vitamin folic acid reduces blood levels of homocysteine, a known risk factor for heart disease, stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Vitamin B12 is needed for normal mental function, and low levels can mimic senility. This book explores the remarkable benefits of these and the rest of the B-complex family of vitamins.
