PRAISE FOR
“In this practical book, Rosalee de la Forêt reintroduces us to familiar kitchen
herbs and spices, helping us to see them in a new light. Through personal and
intimate storytelling, she teaches how to match herbs to people effectively
instead of using them as pharmaceutical alternatives. Drawn in by the abundant,
delicious recipes, you may come to this book as a home chef, but you will leave
as an herbalist, transformed by the power of Rosalee’s alchemy.”
— Guido Masé, author of The Wild Medicine Solution and DIY Bitters
“Alchemy of Herbs puts the power of some of the most potent herbal medicines
on the planet into your hands. These medicines have been tried and tested for
millennia. And now, by combining ancient wisdom with modern scientific
understanding, Rosalee de la Forêt helps you put nature’s pharmacy to work.
Whether you want more energy, better digestion, deeper sleep, or to get sick less
often, Alchemy of Herbs will give you the knowledge you need to restore your
health and to contribute to lasting wellness. At once inspirational and deeply
practical, this is a book to treasure, and to keep close at hand for the rest of your life.”
— Ocean Robbins, co-host and CEO of The Food Revolution Network
“It’s rare to find a writer who can describe complex ideas with such clarity and
skill that anyone can grasp their subject—Rosalee de la Forêt is one of those
souls. In this book, she’s broken down the energetic qualities and medicinal uses
of herbs into an accessible and coherent format. If you’ve ever struggled with
matching herbs to people—the true gift of an herbalist—Rosalee gives you the
tools to understand how herbs can effectively 'nudge' the body’s leanings back
into a state of balance. Alchemy of Herbs contains detailed medicinal profiles,
zesty recipes, and time-honored plant wisdom. The perfect makings of a top-shelf
herbal book that you will treasure for years, and turn to for inspiration time and time again.”
— Juliet Blankespoor, herbalist and founder of the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine
“This is a wonderfully accessible guide to introducing a medicine chest of
healing plants in daily life. The information is presented in a refreshingly
approachable way, by an author who loves both herbs and the simple joy they
bring into our lives. The abundant recipes show how to access the healing gifts
of the herbs as food, created to be both delicious and efficacious. True herbalism!”
— David Hoffmann, herbalist and author of Medical Herbalism and Holistic Herbal
“Another green blessing of herbal information from a practicing herbalist. What
a delight to look at the herbs that Rosalee de la Forêt loves and to encounter her
avid desire to include you in the joy of herbal medicine.”
— Susun S. Weed, author of the Wise Woman Herbal series
“I first met Rosalee de la Forêt several years ago and was immediately
impressed with her knowledge, passion for herbal medicine, and ability to
clearly communicate this information. It turns out she is also a very good writer,
and it is with great pleasure that I now hold her first book in my hands. Alchemy
of Herbs is a wonderful introduction to 29 common herbs and spices, allowing
you to understand how to use them safely and effectively for home health care,
how to make your own kitchen medicines, and how to make tasty recipes so you
can incorporate them into your diet.”
—David Winston, RH (AHG), clinical herbalist, ethnobotanist, and author
of Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief
“So many books geared toward those just beginning to explore the world of
medicinal plants offer very basic ‘take this herb for that problem’ information,
under the assumption that the foundational underpinnings of herbalism are
somehow ‘too hard’ for beginners to grasp. Here, in plain English, Rosalee de
la Forêt shows us that the way that herbalists choose herbs for individual people
with particular imbalances isn’t some magical power or a skill attainable only
by those who can devote their lives to intense study. Instead, it is rooted in
common sense patterns that anyone can learn to recognize, given a model to do
so. That this is done using familiar herbs and spices available to all is an
invaluable bonus. A book for everyone.”
— jim mcdonald, herbalist and founder of herbcraft.org
“Herbal medicine can offer so much. But where to start? How do you know what
herbs are good for you, and how to separate fact from fiction? Rosalee de la
Forêt presents an excellent approach to learning the rich world of herbs. As an
experienced educator and practitioner she weaves together tradition,
experience, and science to present a holistic view of each of the plants, while
providing specific and practical advice for how you can bring them into your
home and life. Alchemy of Herbs is a treasure for any health-seeker’s bookshelf.”
— Renee Davis, RH (AHG), founder of Goldroot Botanical Medicine
“Many books introduce readers to herbs and their activities, but Rosalee de la
Forêt skillfully introduces people instead to herbalism—the nuanced art of
matching plants to people. Drawing energetic traditions into a modern context
and right into our kitchens, she provides a simple and elegant system to look
beyond symptoms and generic cures and into the heart of true herbal healing.”
— Larken Bunce, clinical herbalist and co-director of Vermont Center for
Integrative Herbalism
“Alchemy of Herbs is a must-read for any herbalist, whether fledgling or
experienced! Part reference guide, part recipe book, and part herbal, this is a
book that every herbalist will reach for again and again. Rosalee de la Forêt
has a knack for teaching others how to use herbs in the best way possible by
matching people to herbs. This book is the definitive guide for the subject, giving
anyone the confidence to use herbs to their fullest potential. Each chapter is
engaging, relaying herbal information through a variety of anecdotal stories,
scientific studies, and traditional usage, mixed with a variety of unique and
inspiring recipes and gorgeous photographs. This is a book you will want to
leave sitting out on your desk, coffee table, and kitchen counter, all at the same time.”
— Kristine Brown, RH (AHG), herbalist and author/illustrator of Herbal Roots Zine
“Alchemy of Herbs is a sensory wonder, bringing us our medicines in the most
delightful and tantalizing way they can be experienced: as culinary medicines.
Step away from the bottle and the capsule and experience herbs in the full
richness they can offer both as medicines and as partners in a life rich with plants.”
— Bevin Clare, associate professor of Integrative Health at Maryland
University and president of the American Herbalist Guild
“As a French herbalist, I have a particular affinity for herbs that are both
culinary and medicinal. We have a long tradition of healing food where I live in
the South of France, mainly through the incorporation of aromatic herbs in our
daily meals. Alchemy of Herbs is what I had been hoping for for years. Rosalee
de la Forêt sends us a very important message: health does not necessarily
mean yucky potions. This book brings together beautiful pictures, tasty recipes,
and health recommendations from an expert healer. In a nutshell: this an
invitation to cooking for a long and healthy life.”
— Christophe Bernard, founder of AltheaProvence.com
“Informative, concise, knowledgeable, and generous . . . Rosalee de la Forêt's
sophisticated approach and her personal experience with herbs comes through
in her beautiful recipes, which eloquently combine food and herbal medicine.
Keep this book on your kitchen shelf—you’ll refer to it for healing and
inspiration, always!”
— John Slattery, author of Southwest Foraging
“In this inspiring and practical book, Rosalee de la Forêt empowers you to
awaken your senses in order to choose the best herbs for your needs. And what
better way to experience the benefits and pleasures of herbs and spices than in
the kitchen? Whether you’re brand-new to herbs or have been using them for
years, you’ll love these enticing recipes for delicious drinks, everyday meals,
and simple remedies.”
— Emily Han, author of Wild Drinks & Cocktails: Handcrafted Squashes,
Shrubs, Switchels, Tonics, and Infusions to Mix at Home
“In Alchemy of Herbs, author Rosalee de la Forêt joyously shares her deep
wisdom of herbs to inspire and empower us to transform our kitchens into
nature’s apothecary where delicious, healing foods and herbal remedies pour
forth. Golden Milk, Hawthorn Cordial, and Nettle Leaf Dukkah are just a
sampling of the many tasty, curative recipes offered. She unveils the enchanting,
yet readily accessible world of herbalism that makes me fall right back in love
with the plant kingdom; and you will too!”
— Dina Falconi, herbalist and author of Foraging & Feasting: A Field
Guide and Wild Food Cookbook
“In her wonderfully written book, Alchemy of Herbs, Rosalee de la Forêt
encourages the reader to 'break free from the insanity of the One-Solution
Syndrome' by choosing personalized herbal formulations based on what our own
senses tell us our bodies need. What better scenario is there for using our senses
to divine this knowledge than cooking with flavorful and aromatic healing herbs
and spices? Self-empowerment begins in the kitchen as Rosalee tempts us with
dozens of mouth-watering recipes and encourages us to ‘move forward with the
mind-set of an explorer.’ Those new to plant-based healing as well as
experienced herbalists will find that this beautifully illustrated book exemplifies
the heart and soul of herbal healing through delicious food as powerful medicine.”
— Jeff Carpenter, author of The Organic Medicinal Herb Farmer: Ultimate
Guide to Producing High-Quality Herbs on a Market Scale
“Rosalee de la Forêt has done a wonderful job of melding both the culinary and
medicinal uses of herbs in a way that allows just about anyone to incorporate
herbs into their daily lives. The recipes in Alchemy of Herbs are not only very
appealing, but simple enough for the novice cook or herbalist. For those who
are looking to spice up their lives and improve their health, I would say that this
is the book for you.”
— Natalie Vickery, herbalist and founder of TheFamilyHerbalist.com
“Rosalee de la Forêt has broken down some of the more complex parts of herbal
medicine into clear and straightforward pieces. It’s very practical, but not at the
expense of art and beauty. This book will be a classic.”
— Traci Picard, herbalist and founder of FellowWorkersFarm.com
“It’s exciting to watch more and more people becoming empowered in taking
better care of themselves and their families with the use of herbs and spices.
Rosalee de la Forêt shares concepts like energetics and taste in such a way that
makes it easier for people to understand them, and how to find which herbs are
best for them as individuals. I’m sure that this book will prove invaluable to
those wishing to make that leap into feeling comfortable and confident in making
herbs a part of their lives. Everyone will learn something new!”
— Tina Sams, editor of Essential Herbal Magazine and author of Healing Herbs
“I highly recommend Rosalee de la Forêt's lovely collection of personal stories,
recipes, and herbal information. Reading it is like working in the kitchen
alongside the delightful Rosalee, whose talent and experience with herbs is
expert. Her book is unique in that it explains both the chemistry and the
energetics of medicinal herbs and at the same time introduces their use in a
friendly and inviting way.”
— Holly Bellebuono, author of The Healing Kitchen and The Essential
Herbal for Natural Health
“Rosalee de la Forêt's book is an excellent introduction to the energetics and
science behind the use of our most common culinary and medicinal herbs,
providing the reader with a solid foundation for further learning and exploration.”
— Todd Caldecott, Dip. Cl.H., RH (AHG), CAP (NAMA), Ayurvedic
practitioner, medical herbalist, and author of Food as Medicine

Introduction
As clinical herbalists and founders of the Harmonic Arts Botanical
Dispensary, we find Michelle Schoffro Cook’s book to be in alignment
with what we are facilitating in our company and practice: teaching people to be
their own herbalists. This concept appeals to us in many ways: It takes the power
of healing away from external entities and puts it back into the hands of each
unique being to create their own story of health. It fosters the confidence to trust
the body’s innate wisdom in working with the therapeutic properties that plants
have to offer. Most important, it allows the body to work within the natural
scope of what Mother Nature intended, thus limiting the need for man-made,
isolated chemical compounds in the form of pharmaceuticals and highly
concentrated extracts. Foreign to the body’s natural systems, these can create
harmful side effects and addictive patterns.

We view the path of wellness as a way for each person to create their own
adventure and design their unique lifestyle. Once a person is empowered with
natural health knowledge and information, they can decipher what the best
possible health choice is in any given moment. In a world full of health trends, it
can be difficult to sort out what is what. Going back to basics and looking at
what has healed people time and again throughout history and across a multitude
of indigenous cultures brings tried-and-tested validity. By comparison, our
modern allopathic medicine system is very young and limited in scope.
There is an important place for both herbal and modern medicine in the
world. In this book, Dr. Cook clearly demonstrates the complementary nature of
plants as health allies. Through our lifelong journeys of understanding health and
wellness, we have come to recognize that what comes from the earth
harmoniously aligns with our bodies, also of the earth.

In Be Your Own Herbalist, Dr. Cook not only explores traditional uses of
herbs but also gives credence to current applications, skillfully weaving
traditional herbalism with proven modern scientific methods. She offers up-todate,
scientifically validated findings of successful uses of plant medicine.
This book focuses on thirty-one medicinal plants that can be found across
multiple bioregions and are readily available fresh or dried in health-food stores
and other markets. Knowing these plants intimately is more useful than being
superficially acquainted with the larger spectrum of plant medicine. This book
guides you in exploring these thirty-one great plants in a multifaceted way,
giving you the opportunity to build with each one the kind of relationship you’d
have with a dear friend. It also allows you to work with the plants from the
outside in, preparing the herbs in a myriad of ways, from creating body-care
products that introduce the plant’s properties to the frontlines of your system to
cooking them and letting food be your medicine. Fun and varied herbal
concoctions let you play in the kitchen and discover your favorite ways of
creating wellness for yourself and loved ones.

The clear, simple, and direct communication style in which this book is
written allows for a gentle, welcoming entry point into the realm of herbalism. It
confers the sense that a nurturing, supportive figure is holding your hand as you
learn to work with herbs. Dr. Cook does a great job of breaking herbalism down
into tangible steps that allow you to start playing with plants confidently, right
away. You don’t have to be an expert to be an at-home, practical herbalist, and
this book will show you how. We are delighted to introduce such a fine work
that puts the power back into the people’s hands, allowing them to maintain
good health and vitality and cultivate longevity. We welcome you through the
doors of herbalism, as you embark on an exciting, purposeful journey into the
world of plant medicine. As Dr. Cook inspires you to live a healthy, balanced,
whole life, may you also do the same for those in your life. Viva the herbal revolution!

Harmonic Arts Botanical Dispensary, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

ABOUT THE BOOK
This authoritative guide—based on the author’s classic reference work, Indian Herbalogy of North
America—is a portable illustrated companion for the professional and amateur herbalist alike. It
provides detailed descriptions of 125 of the most useful medicinal plants commonly found in North
America, along with directions for a range of uses, remedies for common ailments, and notes on the
herbal traditions of other lands. Entries include staples of folk medicine such as echinacea and
slippery elm as well as common kitchen herbs—such as parsley, thyme, and pepper—whose tonic
and healing properties are less widely known.
....

EDITOR’S FOREWORD
Each book has its own fate and destiny,” Alma Hutchens observed in the preface to her classic, Indian
Herbalogy of North America. The prescience of that statement will be evident to those who have watched
Mrs. Hutchens’s work unfold in the thirty years since she began her research under the tutelage of her
mentor, the noted herbalist N. G. Tretchikoff. Indian Herbalogy, first published in the 1960s, came at a
time of burgeoning interest in folk medicine and natural healing methods, and it met the need for a detailed
reference book for North American herbalists. It has since become known as a standard work on the
subject in many countries and has gone through seventeen printings as of 1992.
As the years have gone by and interest in herbs and their uses has increased, the need for a “portable”
version of Indian Herbalogy has been felt. It is with this need in mind that Mrs. Hutchens has compiled
this Handbook of Native American Herbs. In it are found descriptions of 125 of the most useful medicinal
plants commonly found on the North American continent. Included are dosages, directions for use,
remedies for some common ailments, homeopathic methods, and lore from the folk medicine of other
countries—particularly Russia, China, India, and Pakistan—where the arts of herbal healing have
traditionally flourished.
The fate and destiny of Alma Hutchens’s work in herbology has proven to be its enduring influence in
the field. A Handbook of Native American Herbs represents the latest phase in that unique destiny.

Introduction
While you might be curious about the healing power of plant-based
medicines and products, maybe you’re reluctant to dip a toe into these
seemingly ethereal waters. But you don’t have to give up over-thecounter
medicine to get on board with herbal treatments. In all
likelihood, herbs are already a part of your self-medication or
beautification routine—you just don’t realize it. Look closely at the
ingredient list on many facial creams and cleansers, shampoos and
conditioners, and even cough drops. You’ll likely find herbal extracts of
many of the ingredients discussed in this book.

Introducing yourself to alternative treatments doesn’t mean you have to bond
with the goddess or Earth Mother labels that herbal medicine has been associated
with in the past. All that this book requires is your sincere interest in learning
about remedies that can prevent and heal discomforts, plus the side effects of
living in a fast-paced modern world. Stress headaches and fatigue are just two
common examples of conditions that can be treated effectively with herbal
remedies. Between the covers of this book you’ll also find recipes for everyday
beauty and body care, mental health, personal “intimate” care that you can share
with your special someone, household products, and other remedies for
emotional and physical well-being. Who doesn’t want that?
Chapter 1 will give you the scoop on what constitutes herbal medicine, how
successful it is in both preventing and curing ailments, the importance of
aromatherapy in your mental and physical health, plus how and why the herbal approach works.
Chapter 2 is where the real fun starts. You’ll learn just three simple steps to
starting your own indoor garden, the proper tools you need to get started, and
which herbs to grow first. But this book isn’t limited to those who have, or
aspire to have, a green thumb. The remainder of the chapter introduces the many
preparations—from herbal teas to massage compresses to facial scrubs—you can
get started making. The chapter also covers what to shop for to stock your herbal workshop.
Chapters 3 and 4 talk herb, providing an accessible, need-to-know education
on a shortlist of herbs. Chapter 3 profiles five must-have herbs you’ll want to
have on hand, and then Chapter 4 goes into the 30 you should consider for your
healing arsenal. You’ll learn why they’re essential, what makes them so
powerful, how they’re used in a variety of ways, and how they can be grown.
Chapters 5 through 11 contain more than 200 recipes for the common issues
associated with our health, skin, and home, issues that most of us are likely to
encounter during the course of our lives.
Consult the handy Glossary at any point if you need help absorbing specific
terminology used in this book.

If you’re ready to put the power of your health into your own hands, this is
your book. Not only will you learn how to boost your metabolism to prevent
disease and illness, you’ll also explore remedies that speed healing, cure all
kinds of physical conditions, and improve your overall well-being. Even better,
herbal medicine doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing endeavor. It can be used to
complement whatever healing methods you currently use with the idea that when
herbs are working for you, your need for commercial products lessens.

NO-NONSENSE HERBAL KNOW-HOW
Before you get your hands dirty, check out chapters 1 and 2 to find out all you
need to know about the basics of DIY herbal medicine and how to make selfcare
fit into a modern lifestyle with optimal results. When finished, you’ll be
armed with must-have tools, easy tips, manageable shopping lists, and more.
Have fun!
