If you have a garden and a library, you will want for nothing.
— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC - 43 BC)

Here, I will share an ongoing list of books, periodicals, videos, lectures, and podcasts...many of which I refer to in my Materia Medica.  Organized for my personal reference*, I thought it might be a good idea to keep it handy and accessible online, alongside my words and images.

 Search the Herbarium, Materia Medica or Athenæum...  

An archive of Materia Medica posts is organized below: search by common plant name, or by using tags such as monograph or specific  preparations (i.e. tincture, oil infusion, elixir, salve).
