Avoid Scott Cunningham like the plague!

 

Try Googling for Sacred Texts to see what they have on things herbal - you could save yourself a few bob!

 

The Links Forum should also have sites on herbs etc.

Hi Otaku,

 

I second Tas' caution, avoid things written by Scott Cunningham or books published by LLewlylen (sp?)

 

As a herbalist I have found many of the old folk lore and herbal remedy books useful; try searching in old book shops!

 

The four useful books in terms of herb lore and magick for me were;

 

- Culpepper's Complete Herbal

 

A must have for anyone interested in using herbs to heal, it gives explanations of the plants and the records of tried and tested remedies and their correspondances.

 

- The Elements of Natural Magic Marian Green

 

I am a bit of a fan of Marian if I'm honest, I have found her work and most things published by Aquarain really useful.

 

- The Magical and Ritual Use of Herbs Richard Alan Miller

 

Really useful and a good insight drawing cultural and domestic uses and putting them into context.

 

- A Modern Herbal Mrs M. Grieves

 

A good and accurate and resourcefull 'Herbal' A must for anyone working with herbs.

 

If I can help at all then just ask.

 

Bright Blessings

 

TAK

See my post to your question on supermarket herbs for Hyslop and Ratcliffe - truly one of the best. Think there's a thread in links too - Mrs. Grieves is a classic, as is Culpepper's colour herbal. The link to the 1911 pharmaceutical codex (in above) is also like looking at a giant herbal dictionary :)

 

Culpeper might tickle your fancy as he was big on the magical aspect of herbs too. There's a book called Culpeper's Medicine or summat which goes into quie a bit of detail.

Culpeppers complete herbal is g8. You can get original script versions which add a dimension unlike others. 5000 spells by Judika somthing or other (v popular) has good basic listings telling you exactly what dragon blood is for example and my own beginers best (dont snigger!) is Tatianas Enchanted. Yes its Ladybird for kitchen crafting but ive had some massive success building up my owns spells from its frilly fairy wording. All good basic stuff to start with.

It's based on Culpeper, but I like Breverton's Complete Herbal for dipping in and out of.
