The Green Witch Herbal by Barbara Griggs - As we seek more natural alternatives to harsh synthetic products, we are learning a new and healthy respect for the traditional wisdom our ancestors took for granted. Women are rediscovering their foremothers' "green witchcraft"--the use of flowers, leaves, berries, roots, and barks in home and garden, for hygiene and beauty, for pleasure and for health. Now, that lore may be found in this modern source book of the domestic use of herbs. Full of practical advice and fascinating historical insights, this delightful book shows you how to tap into the astonishing power of plants and herbs.

Barbara Griggs' best-selling and widely-praised Green Pharmacy is considered the standard work on the history of herbal medicine.


I love this book! The Green Witch Herbal by Barbara Griggs has all sorts of natural ways to address things like insect repellants, disinfectants, and potpourri. (I especially liked the one on moths since I keep bird seed in the basement and wanted to repel moths that get in there). It also has a section on spices and herbs that talks to the origins of the different herbs/plants and how to use them.

There's a nice section on plants to use in teas. The section on "Beauty Care" has hair care, baths, foot care etc. There are recipes throughout - woven into the descriptions/discussions of the plants etc but in addition to there's lots of info about the plants and what they can be used for, how to use them. Then you can concoct the potion (or salad as the case may be) on your own too.
The Green Witch Herbal
is an interesting book with lots of information.

The Green Witch Herbal is a wonderful book. In reality, it is a combination of all the "folk" magic passed through families for generations. I have used many, many of the recipies, and ideas in the book.
Thanks Barbara Griggs for all your research!!
