4.0 out of 5 stars Good folklore and history, very UK-oriented, 26 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Herbcraft: A Guide to the Shamanic and Ritual Use of Herbs (Paperback)
Herb Craft claims to be a guide to the shamanic use of herbs in the native (British) tradition. The uses suggested fall more comfortably into kitchen witchery and a conventional ritual pattern than ecstatic shamanism, but perhaps that's what they meant...
This book's great strength is the vast mass of information around each herb - and there are lots. From how to recognise them - invaluable if out gathering wild plants - through cultivation, folklore, history, preparations, and magickal uses. The folklore in particular is excellent and richly detailed. At the end are a number of useful correspondence tables tying certain herbs to days, elements, planets, gods, etc.
This isn't the best herbal for making remedies, and to get a good magickal use out of it you'll have to have had some experience before - at least in basic casting. But there is a *lot* of information here and it's well presented.

I found this book to be full of information and it is a wonderful help in learning all the different association, to not only the elements, but to that of the station wheel, animal allies and more. It teaches you many ways to use in healing, magick and the lore of the Old Ways.
