The Herbal Alchemist’s Handbook
The Herbal Alchemist's Handbook: A Complete Guide to Magickal Herbs and How to Use Them by Karen Harrison.
Excerpt from the back cover:
"Herbs have been used for medicine, magick, and ritual for cenuries. The ancient arts of herbal alchemy and herbal magick combine the healing and energizing effects of herbs (roots, leaves, flowers, resins, and essential oils) with the cycles of the natural world- the astrological movement of the stars and planets, and the cycles of the earth's seasons.
In this book, Karen Harrison shows you how to select herbs based on their astrological associations as well as their medicinal properties. You will learn how to blend incense, create ceremonial oils, make bath salts, and much more, and use them in your magickal practice. Included are more than 150 herbs and their energy associations.
First published in 2011, this edition includes a new preface and suggested reading list by the author.”
