Illustrated Herbiary Book by Maia Toll


In this beautifully illustrated gift book featuring insightful profiles of 36 familiar plants and herbs, herbalist Maia Toll shows how to tap into each plant's character and symbolic meaning for spiritual guidance and self-reflection.

In addition to medicinal remedies, plants can provide a kind of spiritual healing. By learning the language and wisdom of plants, we can interact with the natural world in a way that is intuitive and meaningful and offers a chance to re-envision life from a fresh perspective.

For the 36 plants in The Illustrated Herbiary, Maia Toll describes their character, shares their wisdom, offers prompts for reflection, and suggests ways to interact with and appreciate the plant. Toll's text is accompanied by the bold, intricate illustrations of Kate O’Hara - making this the perfect gift book for any lover of the natural world. To help guide readers' reflections, a set of 36 cards reproducing the illustrations are included in an envelope in the back of the book.
