A treasure trove of valuable information and a fascinating distillation of the wisdom that Margi Flint has gained during her practice as a herbalist of almost 50 years, in the theory and practice of running a thriving herbal business.
“With all the skill of a master alchemist, Margi weaves together her years of experience as an herbal practitioner with the best of the teachings and the teachers she’s studied with. She stirs in just the right amount of honey, a bit of sass, and a healthy dollop of humor to bring us one of the most eminently useful books on herbal practice available today. There’s so much wisdom here, so much depth, and so much practical information distilled into these remarkably interesting pages. But even more, there’s so much generosity of spirit as Margi invites us into her heart and home and shares with us her deeply personal journey as an herbal practitioner.”
Rosemary Gladstar, Herbalist and Author
“What a pleasure and a treasure to have all of Margi’s wisdom, experience and ever-useful insights into the art and practice of herbalism. This book will not only serve students and teachers of herbs, but all consumers of health care in search of good medicine.”
Kathleen Maier, Sacred Plant Traditions
“What a great accumulation of vital observation and herbal tidbits! In addition, I see it as a very useful reference for practicing herbalists searching for specific information on facial, tongue, and pulse conformation. A good guide on how to sort information from the client intake. This book will be a wonderful addition to the many books already in the herbalist’s library.”
