“This book has a lengthy introduction section before it gets to the individual herbs themselves (which are listed alphabetically). It gives 20 pages of general information about what herbs are, how we use them, and related information.
The individual herb entries give a good history the herb, it’s many correspondences, folk uses, medicinal uses, and magickal uses. Sometimes recipes are included in this section.
The last 70 pages are rituals, ritual uses, types of incenses, and the different correspondence categories ie: elemental, astrological, planetary, deity, ritual use etc. Although I come across ‘herbs’ in the end chapter’s lists that are not detailed in this book, I understand not everything can be included and appreciate this information all the same.” –Willow Moon )o(
