The illustrated herbiary : guidance and rituals from 36 bewitching botanicals / Maia Toll ; illustrations by Kate O'Hara.

Toll, Maia, (author.). O'Hara, Kate (Illustrator), (illustrator.).


"The symbolism of plants -- whether in the ancient Greek doctrine of signatures or the Victorian secret language of flowers -- has fascinated us for centuries. Contemporary herbalist Maia Toll adds her distinctive spin to this tradition with profiles of the mysterious personalities of 36 herbs, fruits, and flowers. Combining a passion for plants with imagery reminiscent of tarot, enticing text offers reflections and rituals to tap into each plant's power for healing, self-reflection, and everyday guidance. Smaller versions of the illustrations are featured on 36 cards to help guide your thoughts and meditations."--Publisher's website.
