A kitchen witch practices magic around the hearth and home!
Welcome to my Witchen Kitchen! I’m Tammy Mundy, a writer, herbalist, massage therapist, wife, mother, grandmother, and homemaker in Charlottesville, VA, USA. I hope you will find tons of inspiration and useful herbal and wise woman information here!
Just grab a cup of your favorite herbal tea (or coffee…I love coffee too!) and pull up a chair. I’ve got a tasty soup bubbling on the stove, herbal medicines in the cupboard, and lots of information to share.
This site chronicles my explorations into the wise woman herbalist tradition. I started this blog soon after I began to study herbs with Susun Weed in 2005. I have since studied from many other wonderful herbal teachers. Currently, I am completing clinical herbal training and plan to open an herbal consulting practice in my hometown some time in 2018.
I LOVE playing with plants! I grow and wildcraft most of my own herbs, and also make most of my own medicines, personal care, and cleaning products. Here I tell of my personal experiences and share practical information and tips regarding natural healing and herbalism, gardening, homemaking, and an earth-centered spirituality. It is intended to be a resource for those beginning to explore herbs, natural healing, and magical homemaking. Please use your own judgment when deciding whether or not to use any of the information you find here, and be sure to consult appropriate experts when in doubt.
This site is a constant work in progress, so check back frequently for updates. Or sign up for email updates and new posts will be delivered right to your inbox. A new article is usually posted about once a month, occasionally more or less, depending on what’s going on in my life.
May you find the information here interesting, informative, helpful for living your best life, and an overall blessing to you in every way!!
FYI — In 2012 I lost this entire site to a virus! I thought all my years of writing were lost forever, and it was a TRAGIC experience for me! BUT, thanks to a lovely reader who let me know that much of the site had been archived at archive.org, I was able to recover all my articles and rebuild the site in 2017. I put the original publish dates on the old articles. I was not, however, able to recover the hundreds of comments that had been left over the years and many of my photos, but I am so very thankful to have been able get my writing back!
