I was very excited to talk to Maia Toll, owner of the first Herbiary in the United States, about her upcoming book The Illustrated Herbiary. The book and corresponding Oracle deck are designed to help you connect to an intuitive part of yourself through plants. I can tell you that the illustrations are gorgeous and the descriptions in the book are easy to relate to. Whether you’re an aspiring herbalist or simply want to connect more with nature, The Illustrated Herbiary is a fantastic investment.
