Making Magic In The Kitchen

Herbal Books on My Bookshelf

I have had an interest in herbs for as long as I can remember. As an active member of the group Future Farmers of America, or FFA, in high school, my focus was on landscaping and horticulture. After working in a greenhouse for a few years, I transitioned into a management role and moved away from growing on a large scale.

Still desiring the benefits of herbs, I started collecting books and taking classes to learn more about the benefits that herbs deliver. Herbs offer us gifts that support our body, mind, and spirit. I use plant medicine daily in the form of flower essences, teas, and in the preparation of our meals.

This is a list of herbal books currently on my bookshelf. This list changes from time to time as new books come in or I gift books to others. The last two on the list, one of my oldest books, A Woman’s Book of Herbs, and my newest addition, The Illustrated Herbiary, were gifted to me, for which I am grateful.
