Taurus season is coming up--the perfect time to have some fun in the kitchen! If you're interested in expanding your magical toolkit, look no further than your spice cabinet! Most of the common herbs and spices you already own have magical associations and are a perfect way to dabble in some plant/kitchen witchery without breaking the bank--just add some intention to your cooking process and you're making magic! 

You can start by doing a magical inventory of your own spice cabinet! Make a list of what you already have and research the magical associations of these herbs--or create your own intuitive associations if that feels better for your practice! You can even write out labels listing the magical properties of your faves to help you embrace spell-crafting in the kitchen on the fly! If you want to up the ante, you can combine spices with compatible magical intention/flavors to create your own magical spice blends! The potential to get creative here is endless! To get you started, here are 4 simple spice blends you can use in your kitchen witchery--as always, feel free to customize these blends however works for you. I have not included measurements to encourage you to mix and taste as you go to until you find the blend that speaks to YOU. Tune in and be present with your sense of taste, smell, and intuition. Magic is rarely an exact science, and neither is mixing up these spice blends!
