Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs by Scott Cunningham
Do you work magic with herbs? Do you use them in spells, for talismans or simply use their power while cooking? If you don't have Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, you need to get it right away. This book has become a classic in its field. Paul Beyerl, a respected author on herbs calls it "an essential reference book by students of herbalism and magick alike. Scott's personable charm touches every page. I highly recommend this book." Jeanne Rose, famed herbalist says, "I love books like this - It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well."
The main part of this book is the listings of the herbs. Each one includes names, associations, and magical attributions. Such as Violets can be used for protection, luck and love! Primrose is for protection and love. Garlic is for protection, healing, exorcism, lust, and prevention of theft.
In this expanded and revised 15th Anniversary edition you will find the magical properties and folklore of over 400 herbs! You'll also find lists of herbs based on their magical powers, their genders, their planetary rulers, and more. Perhaps the most important list is the folk name cross-reference. With that information, when a recipe calls for "bramble," you'll know it needs blackberry. Or if the magic calls for "enebro," you'll know that you need juniper.
Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs is considered a classic and selling over 200,000 copies worldwide, this book is a must have for any magickal practitioner!
