  2. The book "Sexy Witch" by LaSarah FireFox:
    From the Publisher: Employing a unique blend of feminism and magick, this refreshing guide to female self-empowerment helps women acknowledge the beauty, strength, and sexiness within themselves. Utterly honest and captivating, LaSara FireFox banishes the damaging misconceptions and shame often associated with female sexuality and sheds light on what it truly means to be a "Sexy Witch." Each of the seven lessons-covering issues of body image, menstruation, genital exploration, self-acceptance, mentors, and gender-include fun facts, illuminating quotes, and exercises for nurturing the body and spirit. The second half of the book is devoted to rituals-to be practiced alone or with others-that celebrate one's power as a woman, a sexual being, and a Witch. 
  3. Real Soap from the PaganPath Shop: Nag Champa and Tea Tree Scents!  Read about our soap in the PaganPath Shop Area Here.
