Herbal Books

Herbal book recommendations!! Where do I start? I went through my shelves and picked out those books I thought were the best for beginners and established plant lovers alike.โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘ท๐’‚๐’•๐’•๐’†๐’“๐’”๐’๐’ ๐‘ญ๐’Š๐’†๐’๐’… ๐‘ฎ๐’–๐’Š๐’…๐’†๐’” are great. I have several of them, but the medicinal plant one is very handy. I triple check every plant before harvesting and advise you do the same!โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘น๐’๐’”๐’†๐’Ž๐’‚๐’“๐’š ๐‘ฎ๐’๐’‚๐’…๐’”๐’•๐’‚๐’“'๐’” ๐‘ญ๐’‚๐’Ž๐’Š๐’๐’š ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’“๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’ is such a handy one. She covers all kinds of family concerns/ailments and how to's on making oils, tinctures, creams and more. Anything by Rosemary is great though!โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘ฑ๐’–๐’…๐’Š๐’•๐’‰ ๐‘ฉ๐’†๐’“๐’ˆ๐’†๐’“'๐’” ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’“๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’ ๐‘น๐’Š๐’•๐’–๐’‚๐’๐’” is one of my absolute favourites. She takes us through each month of the year with beautiful prose, folklore and intuitive connection with each plant she covers. She covers one or two plants per month and it's a great way to learn. โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘พ๐’†๐’๐’…๐’†๐’๐’'๐’” ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’“๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’ ๐‘ฏ๐’๐’Ž๐’† ๐‘น๐’†๐’Ž๐’†๐’…๐’š ๐‘ฉ๐’๐’๐’Œ is a lovely one. Lots of how to's on teas, tinctures, creams and more along with little bits of indigenous folklore sprinkled through. โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘ฒ๐’‚๐’Ž๐’Š ๐‘ด๐’„๐‘ฉ๐’“๐’Š๐’…๐’†'๐’” ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’“๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’ ๐‘ฒ๐’Š๐’•๐’„๐’‰๐’†๐’ is a wonderful resource for making herbal infused smoothies, elixirs, tonics, herbal spice blends... anything edible really. She challenges us to use herbs in absolutely everything we eat and drink and gives us a nice run down of the actions of each plant. โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘น๐’๐’ƒ๐’Š๐’ ๐‘น๐’๐’”๐’† ๐‘ฉ๐’†๐’๐’๐’†๐’•๐’•'๐’” ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ฎ๐’Š๐’‡๐’• ๐’๐’‡ ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’‚๐’๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’“๐’ƒ๐’” is an extensive bible of beautiful writing paired with ingenious combinations and techniques. You'll fall in love with plants while you read this. If you like Judith Burger, you'll love Robin Rose Bennett.โ โ €
โ โ €
๐‘ซ๐’‚๐’—๐’Š๐’… ๐‘ฏ๐’๐’‡๐’‡๐’Ž๐’‚๐’'๐’” ๐‘ฏ๐’๐’๐’Š๐’”๐’•๐’Š๐’„ ๐‘ฏ๐’†๐’“๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’ is a great and simple resource breaking down body systems and giving a brief write up on several important herbs. This is a great resource and one I go back to on a regular basis for quick reference. โ โ €
โ โ €
There are so many more I'd love to dive into... look up anything by Steven Harold Buhner, Rosemary Gladstar, David Hoffman. I also love scouring second hand stores for herbal gems. Sometimes I find word out copies of books on body creams, natural perfumes and wild plant identification.ย
