Herbal Books


Medical Herbalism

David Hoffman

This book has almost everything you'd want to know about herbs and how to use them medicinally. It has the chemical breakdown of all the herbs so you can really see what's going on, as well as listings for conditions and ways to treat them. I love this book, it's invaluable

Prescription for Herbal Healing

Phyllis A. Balch

This book is divided into three parts for easy reference. Part I discusses the basic principles of herbal medicine and outlines the properties and characteristics of some one hundred sixty single herbs and sixty herbal combination formulas. Part II describes more than one hundred fifty common disorders, conveniently arranged in alphabetical order from acne to yeast infection, and names the herbal therapies that can be used in the treatment of those conditions. Part III is a guide to using various kinds of herbal and other alternative therapies.

Herbal Vade Mecum: 800 Herbs, Spices, Essential Oils, Lipids, Etc.-Constituents, Properties, Uses, and Caution

Gazmend Skenderi

The Herbal Vade Mecum is a very good materia medica for the practising herbalist. Uses are given, dosages aren't, so you need to know your plants before you use this book. Beginners might not do all that much with it, except for the teensy little fact that they'd get solid practical sensible cautions for the listed plants instead of the usual overly theoretical overcautious ones.

The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs: A Guide to Understanding and Using Herbal Medicinals

Leslie Taylor

I was looking for a good book on Rain Forest Herbs without all the hype that had a least some science it in to complement information about traditional uses. Too many herbal books have either no science behind them or have such reductionist science based on faulty studies and assumptions that the information is useless. It combines traditional use with scientific studies and lots of information about each herb.
