Product description


"The best herbalism books for beginners present not only the information we want to know but also information we need to know if we are to establish a strong foundation in herbal medicine. Katja Swift and Ryn Midura offer us just this, infusing their deep understanding of herbalism and wellness into this practical guide to herbs and their virtues."--jim mcdonald, Herbalist and founder of HerbCraft.org

"Katja Swift and Ryn Midura have written an inviting book on herbalism for beginners. I love that their herbal profiles include plants' energetic qualities (like warming, drying, or cooling) and the many ways plants affect our health (like the way angelica can "ground" us). Katja and Ryn offer remedies for everything, from making a fever to breaking one. If you're new to herbs, then this book is for you."--Henriette Kress, Herbalist, author of Practical Herbs, and founder of one of the Internet's oldest herbal websites, Henriettes-Herb.com

"Katja and Ryn have put together a comprehensive and well-organized toolkit, featuring keystone plants and effective ways to prepare and apply them. But what sets this book apart is the attention to detail and safety: how do you identify poor quality in an herb? What are the cons of using a particular botanical? How do herbs fit alongside pharmaceuticals? If you follow this book's clear guidelines, you'll become not just an herbalist, but a good and responsible one. That's a great gift for the modern seeker."-- Guido Masé, Herbalist and author of The Wild Medicine Solution
