Hedge Witch

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A term applied to those who, like the Old Wise Ones, have great herbal knowledge and deal in the healings and magics of everyday life. With the Hedge Witch there is not necessarily any recognition of the religious side of Witchcraft. She, or he, is a practitioner of low magic, i.e., magic that does not involve complicated rites and the use of ritual force to call upon entities. The Hedge Witch invariably works alone, as a Solitary.
