Secret Medicines From Your Garden by

Herbalism has been around for centuries with no indication that it will ever be a dying interest or way of life.  Through out those centuries those who used herbs were known by different names, but more common as “healer”.  Those who were misunderstood by their society’s time were at times called “witches”.  Regardless of the name, herbalism has been around and practice with healing naturally as its intent.

Herbalism can also have a central focus on spiritualism and the use of the herb to heal both the physical body and that of the mind.  Those who  come to mind for the most influential practice of this would be the Druids.  It is from this background of learning and living that the author has developed her book, Secret Medicines From Your Garden.  The author has extensive years involved in learning her art and shares a wealth of knowledge with the reader.

Secret Medicines From Your Garden is packed with information from recognizing plants based upon shape of stems, leaves and growing conditions to using those plants. One section of this book is broken down to individual plants and the growing seasons of Spring, Summer and Fall.  The plants and what portions are used are discussed along with a “recipe”.  Another section is recipes for various aliments and needs.  Throughout the book, the connection to the physical plant and a spiritual healing is linked.

Beyond the amazing discourse on the plants and their healing or home uses, Ellen Evert Hopman concentrates on sharing the spiritual or “magic” associated with these plants.  Having studied Druid and American Indian herbalism, Ms. Hopman strongly influences her book with the idea of healing body and mind with plants.  This is defiantly a way of life that is being introduced and explained to the reader.

Secret Medicines From Your Garden is worth reading if you are interested in herbalism.  As the subtitle, “Plants for Healing, Spirituality, & Magic”, states that is what this book is about.
