Hi Peggle,

I could be considered a Hedgewitch.

Welcome to healthypages.

The following book might be of interest to anyone interested in Hedge Witchcraft.

Very clever spiritual nut. lol

I'm more of the type who appears out of the hedge having been foraging or talking to a tree. lol

Still doesn't help. There are different definitions of 'Hedge Witch'. Isn't it easier to discuss if we know which ones we are using?

What is a Hedgewitch, in your terms, meadowsweet?

I like the image of someone just emerging from a hedge after a foraging expedition, along with a quick chat to a tree!

I'm sure Crowan would be more interested in those who cross over the hedge, though...;)

My definition of a hedgewitch is a person who uses the resources of nature to feed and cure: self, friends and family as well as to learn about our beloved goddess and god.

I like nothing more than rooting through the hedgerows looking for tasty treats or herbs to be turned into remedies. I only ever take enough for my purpose and I ensure that plenty is left for nature.

Made me giggle when I typed it as I had an image of my hair all tangled with leaves, twigs and spiders.

You make rooting around in hedgerows for treats and herbs sound very appealing. Seems very 'Thomas Hardy' (to me) - wandering down country lanes, a wicker basket, a blousy skirt and flowers in your hair..... and twigs, and spiders (small friendly ones:D).

Do you ever make hedgerow wreaths - because I'm suddenly getting the urge to make one πŸ˜€

I do make various things using items found in hedgerows. I made an arrangement out of leaves, berries and nuts a few years ago. (see below). I've also made pot pourri for yule and various Yule tree decorations from what I find. I love it.

For mabon this year I'm attending a festival so will be making myself a head-dress using grasses and maybe some cones and berries mixed in. If I'm successful I will post a pic.

I wouldnt' recommend a blousy skirt as some of those hedges are brutal. Best jeans and wellies. πŸ˜‰

Wow. That's really lovely...! Its a pity you couldn't whisper (as in horse whispering) a Harvest Mouse into lending it's presence to your arrangement, whilst it lasted.:)

Yeah. Do that, sounds good.

The wellies could go under the skirt.....

Thanks, meadowsweet :);)

I still have this decoration and its aged well. I do plan to return it to nature this year, but will need to take it apart to remove the wiring that is holding it together.

skirt still catches on the brambles. lol. I have tried foraging in a skirt and its a faff. lol

I thought that the hedge was symbolic. The barrier between this world and the other :rolleyes:

Yes, I can imagine how that would happen in reality, and not my sentimental day-dreams. In reality, I'd probably 'root around' with a strimmer, a small chain-saw, and be wearing all of the necessary protective clothing! (.....not really:D;)).

I''l look forwards to seeing how your headdress work out ~ enjoy yourself, making it:);)
