BACK COVER #
While there are many works which present information on the medical use of herbs, this intriguing book focuses instead on the herbs, incenses and oils used in magic and alchemy. The author has systematically collated a wide range of material on herbs and their planetary, zodiacal and elemental correspondences. She also presents guidelines on the harvesting of magical herbs, taking account of the fact that each plant has its own unique 'vibration'.

Herbs in Magic and Alchemy highlights the importance of harmonious astrological times for different magical practices and provides revealing insights on how we can all develop clairvoyant contact with Nature.
