What is a Hearth Witch?

Thursday, November 10, 2022


Since I’ve been on this path of mine, I’ve come to learn more and more about myself and about the types of witchcraft I do practice. Because I’ve been taking in so much information from all different type of sources, I’ve had to step back from blogging. At times when I become overwhelmed, I retreat inward to process things. It’s something I’ve always done even as a child. But today I’m here to talk about house witches or hearth witches. Let’s see what the meaning of house and hearth is.



1. a building for human habitation, especially one that is lived in by a family or small group of people.

What is a Hearth (House) Witch?

A Hearth Witch combines the energies of hedge, green, and kitchen witchery and uses the magic of their home within their craft. This path is more of a spiritual path that is rooted in the belief that the home is a place where it is sacred, peaceful, and nourishing. 

Hearthcraft is part herbalism, part healing, part counseling, and part nature based. Magical homemaking is part of the Hearth Witch’s way to be grounded and sacred. This craft is a daily practice of mindfulness of actives within the home and every day living.

The Path of a Hearth (House) Witch

The path of a Hearth (House) Witch is the focus of the home and the magic within. A house is just a house but a Hearth Witch can make any house into a home. Just like the hearth was the center of the home, a Hearth Witch will help keep the fire burning to keep the home warm and welcoming. They would maintain the home and create a nurtured and positive space for all who live in and who visit the home. 

Hearthcraft is very simple and most to all of us do this craft without realizing it. Hearthcraft is the practice of home-based spirituality and how to establish everyday actives that support you and your home spirituality. Maintaining a healthy spirituality means keeping yourself relaxed, focused, and grounding. Taking responsibility for your spiritual practice and working from the heart of your home, is a step toward a more rewarding relationship with the world around you. 

The Path of a Hearth (House) Witch

Like I stated before, hearthcraft is a very simple craft. You don’t have to do big rituals within this craft to practice but you do have to be aware or your intent. Below are ways you can practice hearthcraft within your home. 

1. Live in the moment. 

Being in the moment means not thinking about what you will do next. It means thinking about what you are doing in this moment.

2. Be aware of your intent.

Awareness is key to most magical working. Envisioning a clear defined result is key to success.

3. Direct your energy properly.

Focus your will and allow it to fill the action you are performing.

4. Focus on an action.

Focus on a single action rather than a series of actions. Hearthcraft is about keeping things simple and focusing on the actual work you are doing in the home. 

Being a Hearth (House) Witch also means the upkeep of your home. You must take care of your home by cleaning it and being mindful when you do your house duties. It also means making your home welcoming. 

One way I like to do this is to decorate for the holidays and seasons. When I do decorate, I’m thinking about the up coming holidays and saying a small blessing over our family and home. Another way to upkeep your home is to renew your wards and to make sure the energies in your home is correct.

On another blog post, I will speak about wha is a Kitchen and Green Witch because they do inner-twine with being a Hearth (House) Witch. Until then, blessed be.
