This is great and you don't have to be in to Wicca to use it. If you're a person who is at all in to herbal remedies then this is the book for you. The only real downfall I can see is that you can't look up herbs by what they're used for. It's still fascinating though. Who would have thought that Cayenne "has been used to relieve heart attacks, chills and sore muscles, as an antispasmodic, and to treat rheumatism, jaundice, and arthritis." Page 90.
