This richly illustrated guide to the world of plant faerie essences profiles 33 common garden herbs, explores their healing lore and uses, and adds eco-friendly growing tips for today’s backyard herbalist.
Marrying ancient faerie wisdom, eco-conscious green magick, and traditional herbalism is a natural yet unique combination in the world of herbals or faerie literature. Author Jamie Wood profiles 33 common herbs and accompanies each with a “green” growing tip, a recipe for a healing remedy or earth-friendly beauty product, a suggested use in one of four ancient healing traditions (aryurveda, aromatherapy, homeopathy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine), and concludes with a meditation, incantation, or prayer. What truly sets this book apart from other garden variety herbal books is the “portrait” of each herb’s faerie essence, captured in paintings by the popular fantasy artist Lisa Steinke. Illuminating text, luminous images, and creative packaging make The Faeries’ Guide to Green Magick in the Garden
an enchanted—and enchanting—offering.
