Paul Beyerl, a respected author on herbs calls it “…an essential reference book by students of herbalism and magick alike … Scott’s personable charm touches every page… I highly recommend this book.” And Jeanne Rose, famous author of books on herbs and developer of an herbal course says “I love books like this … It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well.” Over 200,000 people already have this book and use it frequently.
In this edition of the book (it’s expanded and revised on the 15th anniversary of original publication) you will find the magical properties and folklore of over 400 herbs! You’ll also find lists of herbs based on their magical powers, their genders, their planetary rulers, and more. Perhaps the most important list is the folk name cross-reference. With that information, when a recipe calls for “bramble, ” you’ll know it needs blackberry. Or if the magic calls for “enebro,” you’ll know you that is juniper.
The main part of this book is the listings of the herbs. Each one includes names, associations, and magical attributions. Violets can be used for protection, luck, love, and more. Primrose is for protection and love. Garlic is for protection, healing, exorcism, lust, and prevention of theft.
This book is considered a classic. It is probably consulted more than any other book on this subject. If you want to learn the secrets of magical herbs, this book is a must!
