 -Sources-
We don’t cite a whole lot of sources, so I’m just going to list a few of the herbal books/resources we discuss or which I turn to regularly:

The Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, by Scott Cunningham
Hoodoo Herb & Root Magic, by Cat Yronwode
The Folk-lore of Plants, by T. F. Thiselton-Dyer
Jude’s Herbal Home Remedies, by Jude C. Todd, M.H
The Complete Book of Herbs, by Lesley Bremness
Complete Herbal, by Nicholas Culpepper
A Modern Herbal, by Mrs. M. Grieve (also known as botanical.com)

We mention Mountain Rose Herbs as a great source for buying herbs, and we make several failing attempts to recommend our shop, the Compass & Key Apothecary. You should also check out Sarah Lawless’s great herbal supply shop, Forest Grove Botanica.

You can now request Card Readings from Cory via email, if you are so inclined.

    Excellent episode. Plants and herbs are the sole materials in my practice. Great info and interesting ideas of how each is preceived from different points of view.
    I make offerings to my garden area when prepping, planting and at the Solstice. The Corn Maiden (Grain Mother, etc) that I mentioned a few seasons back (and you mentioned and posted my pics in the blog!!) is still one of the most important nature spirits for me.
    The great thing is I get food from the garden and also herbs for consumption as well as magical practice after I dry them in the Fall.
