"I will be highly recommending Toll's delightful, insightful new book to my herbal students!"
The Illustrated Herbiary is my kind of herb book! It is beautifully written, vibrantly illustrated and a seamless blend of physical observations and spiritual sagacity. It is rich in wit and wisdom, and offers creative exercises to help the reader deepen her connection with Nature, and thus, herself. This herbal is not primarily about healing your body; it is about how plants can help you heal your life.

"A wise woman walks amongst us, and her name is Maia Toll."
In an age of disconnection, quick-fixes and false gurus here comes Maia, her feet in the dirt and her hand on her heart. Maia is the real deal. Listen to her. Learn from her. This is an important book full of kindness, old ways made new and practical magic. Maia is a voice for the plants she so lovingly shares with us, and she makes their healing energy and wisdom accessible to all.
