The Witch’s Universe

About Us

The Witch’s Universe is a place for all metaphysical-minded and spiritual folk.

It is primarily a blog, each piece of content revolving around a single aspect of witch life (an herb, a crystal, a belief system, a legend or myth, and more). Every installment’s goal is to cover multiple perspectives of each subject: modern use, medicinal use, metaphysical/witchcraft use, history & culture, science & identification, and more.

The Witch’s Universe is created and populated by Hannah Joslin, whose great desire is to make it the ultimate witch’s almanac (plus, the perfect outlet for the intersections of her passions: science, witchcraft, psychology, and anthropology). The Comfy Coven podcast is hosted by her & Maddi Martinez.

Read stories, bookmark research, tune into episodes, and subscribe for all that is to come.

It’s a pleasure to be on this journey with you. Blessed be!
