It’s hard to say which is more of a classic, Common Herbs for Natural Health or Juliette de Bairacli Levy, the book’s author. Long before most of us had even thought of it, Juliette was blazing a trail that many would later follow toward a simple, healthy life in harmony with the Earth and it’s creatures. Common Herbs was first published in 1974, but has been out of print for nearly 20 years. Those lucky enough to have original copies clung to them like the treasures they are. Having a copy of Common Herbs on your bookshelf is like having a wise woman just down the road, someone whose very living distinguishes the essential from the non-essential. Juliette knows plants and animals at a depth that sparkles forth like the Water of Life in a fairy tale. We are very grateful to Susun Weed for bringing this treasure back into print.
