The Illustrated Herbiary by Maia Toll

The Illustrated Herbiary by Maia Toll


Filled with spectacular illustrations and illuminated by heart centered questions, it opens us to the plant world and ancient teachings from those who live close to the earth. I will come back to this book again and again to deepen my exploration of plants, self, and the magic that happens when we let a little whimsy open the door to wisdom.

Rosemary is for remembrance; sage is for wisdom. The symbolism of plants — whether in the ancient Greek doctrine of signatures or the Victorian secret language of flowers — has fascinated us for centuries. Contemporary herbalist Maia Toll adds her distinctive spin to this tradition with profiles of the mysterious personalities of 36 herbs, fruits, and flowers. Combining a passion for plants with imagery reminiscent of tarot, enticing text offers reflections and rituals to tap into each plant’s power for healing, self-reflection, and everyday guidance. Smaller versions of the illustrations are featured on 36 cards to help guide your thoughts and meditations.About the Author
