Introduction to
Llewellyn’s Herbal Almanac
More and more people are using herbs, growing and gath-ering them and
studying them for their enlivening and healing properties. Whether in the
form of a refreshing herbal tonic, a critter-friendly garden, or a new favorite
recipe, herbs can clearly enhance your life.
In the 2016 edition of the Herbal Almanac, we once again feature innovative
and original thinkers and writers on herbs. We tap into the practical, historical,
and enjoyable aspects of herbal knowledge—using herbs to help you reconnect
with the earth, enhance your culinary creations, and heal your body and mind.
The thirty articles in this almanac will teach you everything from making your
own love charms to using flower and vibrational essences to improve your
health. You’ll also learn how to identify poisonous and non-poisonous
mushrooms, create your own shade garden, and serve up a culinary concoction
that’ll wow the crowds. Enjoy!

By Jill Henderson
A kitchen without herbs is like a carnival without rides—boring! Cooking with
freshly picked or dehydrated herbs turns plain, everyday food into exciting
gourmet fare. And you just can’t beat the price! In fact, growing your own
kitchen herbs is one of the easiest and most rewarding pastimes you will ever
engage in—and it’s terribly addictive, too.
If you are already familiar with growing flowers and vegetables, adding herbs
to your repertoire should be a breeze. For those new to gardening or growing
herbs, the following guidelines will go a long way to help you grow your own
flavorful and healthful herbs and spices. You will no doubt enjoy the experience,
and everyone who sits at your table will thank you for it!....
