Herbal Lore

by

K.J. Simmill

 

This book contains details on how to prepare and apply herbs for either medicinal or magical purposes. It lists numerous herbs and their common uses in both medicine and magical practices and details the healing and magical attributes of colours, as well how to make various magical items.

What did I think of the book?

Herbal Lore, A Guide to Herbal Medicine is the most comprehensive book on Herbal Medicine that I have ever read — and I have read a fair few! Not only does this book discuss a variety of herbs and their uses, but more importantly it gives you step by step instructions on how to use them. I have yet to come across a book that tells you how to take an extract, make an infusion, a tea, a tincture, a compress, a lotion, etc... Usually, I have to rely on Google to find these things out. It is great that all this information is in one book.

There are also comprehensive instructions on how to make a herbal bag, a candle, incense and a Pomander! This book covers it all.

This is a book that I am sure I will be referring to again and again.

I Highly Recommend this book.
