Natural Magic

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Natural magic is that which utilizes natural objects such as herbs, oils, stones, or amulets. It is not the type of magic that depends upon the conjuring of entities or calls for the use of elaborate tools and ceremony. Hedge Witchcraft, folk magic, and healing use natural magic. Also called "low magic"—as opposed to the "high magic" of ceremonial magicians—it is frequently performed instinctively by country dwellers, pagans, and solitary Witches.

The spells and charms of cunning men and women, together with the folk cures and magic of the Pennsylvania Pow-wows, Ozark yarb doctors, grannywomen, power doctors, and doodlebuggers, are all good examples of natural magic.
