Practical magick often uses various herbs, rites and rituals that have been practiced throughout the ages by witches in time honored traditions. The seasons, the Earth, nature and the moon and sun play important roles in the use of practical magick. For instance many spells cannot be preformed unless the moon is full, waxing or waning or should be cast during certain seasons such as Autumn or during the Winter or Summer solstice.

Alchemy is considered both a form of magick as well as a type of ancient science. During its inception it included the in depth study of nature as well as philosophical and spiritual disciplines; in this regard it is similar to practical magick in that it uses nature as its basis of investigation and practice. Alchemy magick has its roots in Egyptian and Greek cultures of the seventieth century. It is considered one of the oldest forms of magickal and spiritual practices known to civilized man. Some ancient alchemists were very devoted to the idea that common materials could be turned into gold and attempted this with great vigor. Other respected alchemists were more devoted to the study of nature and specifically the composition of minerals, rocks and metals found in the Earth.
