Description

This unique compendium combines botanical descriptions with the medical lore that accompanies each plant to present a sourcebook on the flowers and herbs that once held an essential place in everyday life. Recognizing the revival of interest in organic and holistic lifestyles, this guide blends modern applications of herbal healing with a mixture of the religious and age-old Welsh country superstitions that once were intertwined with the healing powers of plants--from preventing lightning strikes to finding a lover. Explanations to the meanings behind the names of the most common herbs and wild flowers are also included.
