The Ultimate List of Witchy Resources

I’ve been asked by quite a few people how I’ve learned what I just seem to ‘know’ about magick and witchcraft. And that’s a fair question! We aren’t always so great about sharing our sources on the internet, as opposed to in a more academic setting, so I thought I would do a massive roundup of all my favorite witchy resources for you.

The Ultimate List of Witchy Resources | The Witch of Lupine Hollow

Though this is by no means a comprehensive list, these are all books I use and refer to regularly (when I’m not loaning them out because everyone needs a little magick!) Some of these are current favorites, while some are old standbys that got me through my first years studying witchcraft (you can probably tell which are which by the publish dates).

Personally, I’m not a fan of spellbooks so there are very few on here and the ones that are here, I only use as reference. I really encourage you to write your own spells and rituals but it’s always good to have a few sources to refer to!

  1. This great, thank you for putting it together. I love those Ellen Dugan books. One of my favourite books is the hedgewitch book of days by Mandy Mitchell, I would say its more cottage witch than hedgewitch and a resource I use time and again.


  2. So honored to be included in this list! ❤ I agree with you about the spellbooks – I much prefer to write my own, but it was helpful to see examples when I was first starting out. I really enjoyed The Inner Temple of Witchcraft by Chris Penczak – even though it had its issues, I thought it explained things really well!


  3. I think it’s great that you’re posting this list, but I find Gala Darling to be an odd addition since she seems to just be saying “I’m a witch” to make money? I have seen nothing to indicate that she’s actually a witch, but a lot to make it look like she’s just trading on its popularity at the moment.


    1. Thanks for commenting! I disagree actually. Gala’s aesthetic may not be as traditionally “witchy” as some bloggers but her attitude certainly is. I know some super authentic people who have been involved in her witch-focused programming and have never heard anyone express doubt about her beliefs. At the end of the day, her beliefs are her own, whether or not they are authentic, but I think her message is a powerful one of feminism, empowerment and alternative thought.


      1. I take no issues with her pink aesthetic, but more that she doesn’t really seem to say she’s a witch. For example, on her about page she says that Ru Paul is her “spiritual leader,” but mentions witchcraft not at all. It’s just my opinion 🙂 I do wish she still did moon posts, but I think she’s not actually a practicing witch. Thanks for being okay with dissenting opinions though! I appreciate it 🙂


      2. I am definitely cool with dissenting opinions! 😀 I don’t think it’s cool to say that someone is or is not a practicing witch though. Everyone’s spiritual practice is their own and whether or not it appears that way to others doesn’t make someone a witch or not. Even if Gala doesn’t actually consider herself a witch, I think her resources are valuable to anyone on an alternative spiritual path, but at the end of the day, however she feels inclined to define herself is up to her. There are as many paths and types of practices as there are witches and as there are individuals; that’s actually a really important point for me as it’s kind of the root of my own message here at Lupine Hollow so I’m really glad you’ve brought this up! Anyone is welcome to make what they will of my resources, not just those who follow a cottage witch or hedge witch or kitchen witch or even Wiccan path.

      3. I completely agree with keeping things craft-path-neutral 🙂 Saying “do x, y, z” isn’t my style either. With GD I feel like, don’t sell me the “Bad Witch Workout” if that’s all you do/that’s all I see. I’m not saying she’s 100% not a witch, I’m just not seeing it outside her products. Like I said, though, it’s just my opinion, and I respect that you don’t agree. I read her site for around a year (and bought her book) before I came to that conclusion. I think it’s awesome that you’ve been so open minded and nice though, so thank you!


      4. That’s totally fair! There are spiritual folks out there I totally don’t connect with myself or that I get a weird or bad vibe from. I think that potential for dissent is one of the consequences of an undefined spiritual group- sometimes we just disagree!
