Spirits, Fairies, Leprechauns, and Goblins: An


EncyclopediaPaperback
by Carol Rose

A fabulously entertaining work with over 100 delightful illustrations--Library


Journal callsSpirits, Fairies, Leprechauns, and Goblins its "favorite work of 1996."
In more than 2,000 alphabetically arranged entries, readers will meet angels, demons, elves,
encantados, fairies, familiars, keremets, nats, nymphs, and many other strange beings from
around the world. Carol Rose introduces the reader to the little--and not so little--folk, delightfully
various and, at the same time, strikingly similar from country to country. Wherever humans have
lived, the supernatural beings have dwelt alongside us. People serve to explain the
unexplainable--the strange disappearance of a traveler in a dark wood, that odd thumping in the
attic, the fresh cream turned sour overnight. Often they reveal the stoic humor with which human
societies have faced their difficulties. But whatever their source, our guilts, fears, dreams, or

imaginations, the spirits have fascinated and enchanted us through the millennia. Chosen
by Library Journal as a Best Reference Source.

The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews (Llewellyn's


Practical Magick

One of the secrets of real magic is that it is controlled by the mind. The more things in your ritual
to help your mind associate with your goal, the more powerful your ritual may be. Colored
candles, scented oils, natural incenses, and more all add to the impact of the magic you wish to
do. But how do you know which incense to burn? Is it possible to add scented oils together to get
a more powerful oil? And how do you make your own appropriately-scented tools?
The answers to questions like these and hundreds more can be found in The Complete Book of
Incense, Oils and Brews by world-famous author Scott Cunningham. This is a greatly expanded
and rewritten version of The Magic of Incenses, Oils and Brews. It includes over 100 new
formulas, proportions for each element of the recipes (the most requested feature from his
previous book), how to substitute ingredients, and much more. Besides the formulas, it also
includes the exact methods of making all of these scented tools, including how to extract the
essences from the herbs.
Each one of the formulas in this magic book is precise and easy to make. Do you need luck?
Take 2 parts vetivert, 2 parts allspice, 1 part nutmeg, and 1 part calamus, grind them together as
finely as possible, then sprinkle the powder in a circle around you, beginning and ending in the
East and moving clockwise. Sit within this circle and absorb the powder's energies. Also included
are other ways to use magical powders that will have you coming up with your own ideas for
them, too.
There is a legion of recipes for incenses. There are three for the sun and two for consecrating
talismans. There are incenses for each of the astrological signs and ones to help you study better

and gain success. You'll also find incenses for each of the planetary influences. There are four for
Saturn alone!
This compendium of magical lore is a vital tool for every magical person on any magical path,
whether you are a beginner or an expert.

exploration of the theories behind the practice. Clean, clear, simple, and easy to read, Real
