"In this wonderful book Judith Berger imparts to us her deep knowledge of the use of plants and the importance of ritual, inherited from the wise traditions of our forbears. But even more significant, she inspires us with her conviction that, despite the reigning materialism of our age, we still have the potential to achieve well-being through a profound reconsideration of our inner selves and a reconnection to the Earth, which is in itself the first act of healing." --Laura Esquivel, author of Like Water for Chocolate and The Law of Love
"Herbal Rituals is a book you can live by. I particularly appreciate the way Judith Berger blends dreams, recipes, traditions and nature, restoring soul to the world in which we live. There can be no ecology of depth until this magic returns, and this precious, earthy and wise book of herbal magic has just the right tone, just the right ingredients to guide us all toward a more natural and more grounded life." --Thomas Moore, author Care of the Soul and The Soul of Sex
"Grab this sensual, magical, practical, magnificent book right now and go to bed with it, take it on a walk, eat dinner together, bathe with it, craft with it, learn from it. You won't want to let it go!" --Susun Weed, author of Menopausal Years and The Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year
"Herbal Rituals poetically describes the delight of using herbs through the seasons of the year. It mixes eloquent musings about each month with ways to use herbs for healing, pleasure, and comfort. The author weaves together a variety of spiritual traditions and embellishes the tapestry with herbs that give a sense of grounding and inspiration." --The Herb Companion, February 1999
