The air crisp, snow on the mountains, I glance at my Dad. Eighty years old, he’s spry enough on this coarse and slippery trail.
It’s his birthday month, and we are camping at Pinecrest. Dad grew up here. He loved playing in the woods around this lake, that we’re now circling on foot.
Small streams cross the trail ahead. Because of the record rain fall in California, the snow pack has grown thick in the Sierras. More water melts from the snow pack than usual.
The soil softened by the runoff gives way beneath my father’s right foot. He topples. His face slams into a rock. Blood pours out of the gash on his forehead.
I’ve got nothing. Nothing to staunch the bleeding. What would you do?
As Wiccans, we love the natural world. Like me, many go camping and hiking. We bring many things with us: shelter, food, water and more.
But I made a mistake. I failed to carry some kind of first aid kit on that hike. Make sure that you always carry a first aid kit in the woods.
We did make it to the ER, and my Dad is okay. Bruised and healing.
But what about daily life, with its disappointments and fear? This is where a Wiccan First Aid Kit would be handy.
The Wiccan’s First Aid Kit
The Wiccan’s first aid kit can include:
Meditation provides a great healing salve for many worries.
- Protection Charm
A protection charm can help you ward off certain mishaps.
Consider having an aromatherapy necklace to enhance your inner peace.
You can add other items to your own Wiccan’s First Aid Kit. (Consider sharing your ideas in the comments section.)

As a Wiccan I found this an inspiring read. Written in a way that makes it accessible to everyone irrespective of their current knowledge. – Shona Cathro
I don’t generally write reviews on books I’ve read…but this time i feel lead to. This book spoke volumes to me, as if the author knew exactly where I’m coming from and what I’m struggling with. It’s not often a book can make me cry, but this one did by making me see the many blocks I’ve put up in my life. I knew they were there, but I’ve gotten skilled at pretending they’re not. Thank you for helping me see I’m not some freak because of circumstances throughout my life that have caused the blocks, and that i need to stop hiding from or burying them and face them one step at a time. – Crystal Sparks

Ms. SilverClaw has written a book that is really great for the beginner wanting to learn about Wiccan or wants to start practicing the art of Wicca. I found this book wonderful, easy to read, and extremely helpful and informative. It covers everything from what Wicca is, the history of Wicca and how Wicca became misassociated with evil, along with how Wicca can help/save people’s lives. Ms. SilverClaw also discusses practicing Wicca either in a Coven or Solo, and all the things you need in order to have in order to perform your ceremony, and she explains what each item means. She explains how to create spells and gives examples to use, and explains the pitfalls of creating certain types of spells. Ms. SilverClaw has truly created a book that is a cast all net the seems to cover everything that I needed to know to begin practicing Wicca. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for their first book on the topic and wants to start practicing the art of Wicca or is just curious about the topic. This is truly a Must Have book. – Tamra L. Shipman
This is a terrific book! It is like talking to the author over a cup of tea like one of the bloggers says. – Kitri
