You and your children can enter into a beautiful story of how it came to be that the Creator of All Good Things gave healing herbs to the people of the Earth.  It all began when the Creator of All Bad things brought disharmony, and thereby illness, to the world.  Seeing this, the Creator of All Good things made a special plants to cure the illnesses that were brought to the world. 

What follows are the stories of seven herbs that encompass various forms of disharmony and their healing solutions.  You and your children will learn how the plants grow, why the Creator of All Good Things gave them particular healing powers, and how it is that the people use them.  Couched within this myth that resonates with the Greek myth of Pandora's Box story, Genesis 1:12 from the Judeo-Christian tradition, and many other world creations stories, is one of the finest presentations of botanical natural history and herbal wisdom that I have come upon.  Any child who is treated to this book will learn things of value for the entirety of their lives, and in ways that will not soon be forgotten.

Song of the Seven Herbs is just right for the Waldorf 5th grade botany block.  Covered are the following herbs: Stinging Nettle, Yarrow, Dandelion, Violet, Chicory, Wild Rose, Sunflower.  This book is a joy - one to share and return to as often as you need a reminder of the ways of goodness in the world of ours.

Highly recommended for children and adults over age 10.

Common Herbs for Natural Health

It's hard to say which is more of a classic, Common Herbs for Natural Health or Juliette de Bairacli Levy, the book's author. Long before most of us had even thought of it, Juliette was blazing a trail that many would later follow toward a simple, healthy life in harmony with the Earth and it's creatures. Common Herbs was first published in 1974, but has been out of print for nearly 20 years. Those lucky enough to have original copies clung to them like the treasures they are. Having a copy of Common Herbs on your bookshelf is like having a wise woman just down the road, someone whose very living distinguishes the essential from the non-essential. Juliette knows plants and animals at a depth that sparkles forth like the Water of Life in a fairy tale. We are very grateful to Susun Weed for bringing this treasure back into print.

Nature's Children

Few books have inspired the devoted following of this one. Originally published almost 40 years ago, many of the children whose parents used Juliette's wisdom as a guidepost have now raised their own children with same joy and confidence their parents found in Nature's Children. Juliette's love of children, of the Earth, of herbs, and of goodness and truth make Nature's Children so much more than just another great natural healing resource. Nature's Children is nothing less than the transmission of an elder to those younger who would receive it. It's great to see it back in print.
