Show 118: 2nd Annual Book Lover’s Review
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, winter is the time for rest and introspection. We herbalists sorely need a break from the activity of fall’s harvest and root digging. Instead, we are spending this season digging into a good book. Today, we’re talking about our favorite books for rest, introspection and herbal inspiration.
