Presenting the third book in our Materia Medica series, another expansive exploration of the medicinal plants at the heart of the herbalist’s healing practice.

With Volume 3 we take an in-depth look at herbs, actions and applications – 51 extensive and heavily illustrated chapters with the first half organized according to plant families, and the herbs in the second section representing the regional locales where they are prevalent, characteristic, and traditionally utilized.  From Anacardiaceae (Sumac family) to Zygophallaceae (the Caltrop family), and from the weeds and commoners of France and Scotland to Appalachia, the Adirondacks and the American Southwest!

The majority of Materia Medica III chapters were penned by our respected long-term Plant Healer Quarterly columnists 7Song, Shana Lipner Grover, and Dara Saville  and this book is thus also a tribute to their lifelong work with beloved herbs.  Other treasured contributors include practitioners Becky Beyer, Marija Helt, Phyllis Light, Sean Croke, Sarah Lawless, Lisa Ferguson and Natasha Clarke.

Reading this volume is like a personalized plant walk through the lands of our plant allies, opening our eyes to their gifts and blessings, learning about their effects, intricacies, habitats and needs.  We and its authors are honored to share this journey with you, on our individual healing paths.
