Shelfari edited the description of A Druid's Herbal for the Sacred Earth Year Sunday, August 30, 2009.
This complete guide to the plant lore of the Druids covers the eight major festivals of the pagan year and the appropriate herbs and rituals to celebrate these sacred days. Rich in tradition and folklore, A Druid's Herbal will be an important resource for herbal and ritual wisdom during the round of the sacred year. Gives complete instructions in both the medicinal and magical uses of the herbs associated with each season. Includes chapters on herbal alchemy and the planets; ancient groves and stone circles; herbs for children; and information on the use of herbs for consecration and purification, for marriage, and for funerals. Appeals to anyone interested in the Druidic tradition from ancient to modern times.
