  • Kitchen witch is a term that refers to a practitioner of witchcraft or Wicca who uses only simple, ready to hand elements in their ritual and magical workings instead of elaborate tools, costumes and complex formulae. It also describes someone who uses basic home remedies or simple herbal magic or who practices folk magic rather than ceremonial or formal magic.

    For a short time in the 1980s a small figurine of a long-nosed hag on a broomstick was popular in the midwestern United States and was hung in kitchens as a good luck talisman. This figurine was marketed and sold under the term "kitchen witch."
