Materia Medica


Welcome to my Materia Medica! There will always be something new added, if not a new herb, root, flower etc., then to an existing Botanica already listed. As new information is revealed with my ongoing studies, I will be returning to their profiles and adding, editing and enhancing their Materia Medica. A herbalist relationship with each plant alley is never complete. Like all relationships, there is always more to learn about each other! And that’s the best part of the process.
