Description

In days gone by our ancestors lived in harmony with the earth. They knew with plants could heal and which ones could kill. They also knew that plants harbored magical power, forces that could be harnessed and directed to fulfill a need – anything from protecting a house to finding true love. Magical herbalism is the use of these powers to create positive changes.

This revised and updated fifteenth anniversary edition contains the folklore and magical properties of over 400 herbs. Far from concentrating on esoteric, unobtainable plants, many of those mentioned within are old friends. The magical properties of onions, cashews, apples, rice, lettuce – as well as dill, basil, fennel, garlic, and parsley are described. Extensive tables, across-reference of folk names, glossary, and annotated bibliography make this a comprehensive and valuable guide to the practice of magical herbalism.

Review:
“I love books like this – a book for people to use and study. It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well. Scott Cunningham definitely has a knack for gathering information and giving us the tools to incorporate it into our lives.”
