The Complete Language of Herbs (9781577154129) £12.99
Did you know that allspice can be added to herbal mixtures to attract money or luck? Or that sprinkling arrowroot at the doors of your home will keep guests’ negative energy from entering? Reaching the height of popularity during the Victorian era, floriographies—dictionaries of symbolic flower meanings—were an amusing pastime and art to subtly communicate unspoken emotions. To complement her outstanding success of The Complete Language of Flowers, author S. Theresa Dietz has scoured historic sources and compiled an equally beautiful compendium with The Complete Language of Herbs. With over 500 common and forgotten herbs and spices from around the world, learn their names, characteristics, and historic meanings from mythology, medieval legends, folklore, and flower poetry. Coupled with stunning full-color illustrations, this comprehensive dictionary is a must-have for gardeners, chefs, florists, and flower and food enthusiasts. Now in a pocket-size edition for easy, on-the-go instruction.
