A History of Scottish Herbs

I don’t know why, but I am not one to utilize video as much as I could, so I am really happy when  friends  share ones that they have found. Stephany, of Naturally Simple Living blog, also has a webpage at face book and there she shared the following videos. Since I am studying Traditional Scottish Herbalism, I am pretty excited! Thanks Stephany “waves” xx There are several videos in this series.  By the way, Stephany has just a web shop also:)

OOoh I will have to take a look. Thanks for sharing. I recently purchased The Scots Herbal by Tess Darwin.

I have not really had time to read it properly yet though. I have a rather huge book pile going. I was drawn to it because of my Scottish Ancestory out of curiosity. I am thinking it will make a fantastic companion in winter curled up in front of the fire.

Another book recommendation for you Lesley if you don't already have it... Napiers History Of Herbal Healing, Ancient & Modern by Tom Atkinson, it's a history of Scottish Herbal Medicine and very interesting.
