Easy to use, the Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs by Scott Cunningham is a wonderful place to find out all of the magical properties and folklore of over 400 herbs, including many that are commonly found in your kitchen.
This revised and updated fifteenth anniversary edition contains the folklore and magical properties of over 400 herbs. Far from concentrating on esoteric, unobtainable plants, many of those mentioned within are old friends. The magical properties of onions, cashews, apples, rice, lettuce as well as dill, basil, fennel, garlic, and parsley are described. Extensive tables, a cross-reference of folk names, glossary, and annotated bibliography make this a comprehensive and valuable guide to the practice of magical herbalism. Paperback, 307 pgs.
