. It’s a beautiful and inspiring book I wish I’d had when I was getting started over a decade ago…and one that offered me a few new ways to work with some of my favorite plant medicines. Rosalee’s approach is practical and grounded without losing the magic of working with herbal medicines. Alchemy of Herbs is one of the textbooks I use in my Family Herbalism Apprenticeship program because it’s an approachable and powerful resources for anyone practicing herbalism for family, friends, and self.
Sue said: This is good book for beginner herbalists and herb enthusiasts alike. It has recipes for kitchen herbalists along with dosage suggestions for clinical herbalists. The author has a sense of humor that shows up in the writing adding to the reader’s delight. She starts with a virtual cupboard of herbal processing tools for the reader to browse through. These are referred to through out the book. Even advanced herbalists will enjoy breezing through the book to update their information on the herbs that they may have neglected over the years.
The bottom line: We give Alchemy of Herbs by Rosalee de la Forêt two thumbs up.
