Amy Blackthorn, Author of “Blackthorn’s Botanical Magic: The green witch’s guide to essential oils for spellcraft, ritual and healing.
I began my study of the magic of plants as an inquisitive child roaming the jungles of my overgrown childhood yard, making forts for pirate treasure, mad scientist laboratories to hybridize the mint and azaleas to do my bidding and more. This grew into a love of horticulture and magic, and as an adult, I found a way to blend them both into a single life's work, helping people find the magic around them in the every day botanicals they carried in their pockets, in the bottles of essential oils that many people are already using.
I've appeared on HuffPost Live, Yahoo News, the Associated Press and Top Ten Secrets and Mysteries (Episode "Supernatural Abilities"), and many other print interviews since discovering my passion over twenty-six years ago. If I can bring those smiles and that passion to someone else, I've done my job.
