I reorganized the pinned list in this section, but noticed that it didn't have many links to specifically herbal sources. I have the opposite of a green thumb--thank goodness my daughter gets hers from her dad's side of the family, who are all miracle workers with their gardens, otherwise all my houseplants would be dead. I can manage to grow the occasional cooking herb, but anything fancier I buy. Same thing with foraging, I am hopeless. So here is a list for the horticulturally/time challenged:

Herbs:
http://www.thehermitsgrove.org
https://www.mountainroseherbs.com/ (also has herbal products)
https://www.seaveg.com/shop/ (seaweed)
http://www.fungi.com/ (mushrooms)
I have a link with some unusual herbs, but it also sells kratom, so not sure if okay to post here.

Herbal products:
http://www.wiseways.com/
http://www.ecclecsta...ence_resin.html
http://illuminatedperfume.com/

Herbal info:
http://botanical.com/

Nice! Just a note to newer posters, stick around and get to know some of us... members here can be a great resource as well :)

I see that! Will be ordering Herbs: Medicinal, Magical, Marvelous to my Nook tonight--I've been looking around recently for a reference like that.

So sorry, Marrena, but it's not available in e-book format (the publisher's choice, not mine). There are too many tables for it to translate well to that format.

Well as long as I'm paying for shipping I bought all three books. Herbalism is one of my weak spots, I need more knowledge.

I love Susun Weed's books. Not so much her - I'm certainly not a groupie. It might be worth checking out from the library to see if you like her writing style.

Her menopause book was exactly what I needed when it hit.

It's hitting me pretty hard. I can deal with the hot flashes, it's the moodiness that's hard, particularly with two moody teenaged girls underfoot! Mountain Witch's Formulary has some treatments, I'll try those. Some I'm already doing; my instincts are good.

Some interesting herbal books I got a while ago are by Rosita Arvigo. One is an herbal book, although not too useful for me since mostly dealing with South American herbs. The other is a memoir telling of her apprenticeship to a Mayan herbalist and healer.

The hormonal mood swings were horrific for me. They left an ovary so I wouldn't go into menopause. Too bad the docs didn't catch up with the fact that most of the time, that ovary gets overworked, starts the hormonal cascade, overworks itself and then quits. It takes a few months. Mine was surgical.

SW goes into depth on which herbs help, why, nutritional information, etc.

I had to turn to the doc for help back then. It was before I knew anything about herbalism but it was with her book that I was able to get rid of the rxs'
