I am deep into my journey with herbs. As I worked towards becoming a bonafide herbalist, I absolutely love exploring the various resources created by some of the herbalists I admire and trust.
There are a lot of valuable resources out there. Some better than others of course. As a sucker for printed literature, I probably have purchased far more books than I need but I always feel like it is better to have the information than to find yourself coming up empty just when you need it.
Today I am sharing my ‘short list’ of must-have herbal recipe books. These are the books that I use the most and that I personally find to be the most valuable both in terms of content but also in ease of use. These herbal recipe books are both for cooking food and also herbal remedy making. I hope that you check a few of these out. They might very well become your favorites!
