Hi everyone! 

I wanted to share some websites that are very useful for starting or gaining more knowledge with herbs. I recently have started to reorganize my Herbal journal and found these websites in the process. I hope they are as useful to you as they have been for me.   :D

 

This is the 1st website:

http://botanical.com.../mgmh/mgmh.html

 

This website is useful because it has different lists of herbs and breaks them down into Plants & Herbs - Recipes - and Poisons. This is very useful when learning about herbs and how to use them.

 

The next Website:

http://christopherhobbs.com/database/

 

This is a great Database! There is so much information here! I like that it is broken down into Ailments and Herbs. This is very useful!

 

Next is:

 http://www.naturalhealthschool.com/

This is more of a way to learn to be an Herbalist. 

 

This is what I have so far. Once I have more I will add them to this forum.
 

Enjoy!   :grin_witch:

Sincerely,

Hello Again,

 

I wanted to add this but forgot. If you are building a Materia Medica, this is a great resource to use! I myself am using it to build my Herbal Journal because there is so much information that is useful here for an Herbal Journal.

Enjoy!

Amber, as the disclaimer on the main page of botanical.com states, it is directly from a book first published in 1931. Therefore, a lot of the knowledge is outdated and some of the Latin binomials are incorrect. Useful, yes, as long as you're aware of what you're reading.

Yes,
I'm aware. I liked it for historical purpose and thought it would be to others as well.
But thank you,
Sincerely,
Amber
