Hedge Witch


A term denoting a Witch who neither belongs to a coven nor tradition but practices in a solitary fashion. Generally this person relies upon self-study, personal discernment, and intuition. The person does not claim to be initiated. This person leads a life similar to the ancient village witch who was called upon for spells and healing potions by the local people. A.G.H.
