Warning: Most of these herbs have warnings attached, especially for pregnant women or people with major health issues. When in doubt, please consult your doctor or a local herbalist before using these herbs for medicinal purposes.
As time goes on, I will be adding more books to this list.
It is important that no one thinks that I am plagiarizing the material in this blog. I did not "discover" this information on my own, but rather, I have gathered data from multiple books and blogs and have put it all together in an organized manner. My thanks goes to all of the authors/companies whose information I have used.
If you think I took information from a site/source that is not mentioned here, please let me know and I will add it as quickly as I can.
