Looking for the ide­al partner? Try wearing a small piece of maidenhair fern. Is money tight? Burn clove incense­ to attract prosperity. Want to sharpen your intuition? Do you wish to sharpen your extrasensory perception? A dandelion root tea could be your answer.

Long ago, folks understood the earth they lived on. They knew the good plants, the bad ones, and the magical ones. It was thought that plants possesse­d unique energy, use­ful for diverse purposes - from safe­guarding your home to finding true love­. This practice of using plant power for positive changes is what we call Magical Herbalism.


This refreshed and modernized version, marking its fifteenth year, showcases the mythical attributes and significances of more than 400 herbs. It doesn't merely focus on rare, hard-to-find plants. Indeed, several enlisted plants are virtually household names. Apples, Onions, Rice, Lettuce, Cashews, and usual herbs like Dill, Basil, Fennel, Garlic, and Parsley and their magical qualities are discussed. Helpful tables, a glossary, an annotated bibliography, and an index based on vernacular names enhance its utility as an all-inclusive handbook on Magical Herbalism.


 "Scott Cunningham's herbal has lit the sparks of inspiration for a great many herbalists seeking further knowledge. Considered an essential reference book by students of herbalism and magick alike, the lore within this book is enjoyable to read and the knowledge is sound. Scott's personable charm touches every page and brings magick to the reader. I highly recommend this book."

"I love books like this - a book for people to use and study. It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well. Scott Cunningham definitely has a knack for gathering information and giving us the tools to incorporate it into our lives."
