Botanical Curses and Poisons by Fez Inkwright is ideal for experienced and beginners alike.
Poisonings are among the most memorable deaths in history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Concealed and deliberate, it s a crime that must be planned in advance. And yet there is a fine line between healing and poisoning, and Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!
In Botanical Curses and Poisons, Fez Inkwright – author of Folk Magic and Healing – returns to folkloric and historical archives to uncover historical uses and the fascinating, untold stories behind deadly plants, witching herbs and fungi.
This hardback book beautifully illustrated by Fez Inkwright, is a treasury of folklore, packed with insight, lore and the revealed mysteries of everyday flora perfect for gardeners, writers, folklorists, witches and general knowledge buffs alike! It would look wonderful on a witchy bookshelf or on your altar.
