About the Book
Chronicling more than 45 years of his intimate relationship with the plant world, Robert Rogers describes the journey that led him to become an herbalist and shares his deep knowledge of the twenty plants that form the soul of his medicine kit.
Rogers weaves personal experience, observations, and knowledge from indigenous healers, and many years of expertise from his practice as a professional herbalist and clinical professor to present a unique and fascinating narrative that not only limns one man’s vital connection to plants but also provides invaluable information on effectively using plant medicine for the prevention and treatment of a variety of health conditions.
Written in the context of the Cree lunar calendar, Herbal Allies discusses each of the twenty plants in detail, including its clinical practice, homeopathy, gemmotherapy, essential oils, hydrosols, flower essences, spiritual properties, personality traits, and astrological correspondences. Illustrations, poems, stories, legends, and recipes impart a comprehensive knowledge of the herbs.
