6.6 Other online information sources.
Among the goodies you'll find herbal mailing list and newsgroup archives, Michael Moore's files, and some nice WWW pages.
I'll only list the most important herbal WWW pages here. You'll find the rest of the good sites from links on Howie's and my pages. And you should use a search engine to look for information on specific plants.
- Michael Moore's homepage: http://www.swsbm.com , the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine.
Have a good look at all the goodies; if you are not a beginner, get the big textfiles - Herbal Materia Medica, Herbal Repertory, Herbal/Medical Dictionary, Herbal-Medical Contraindications, Specific Indications, Herbal Tinctures, Herbal Energetics, Plant Folders, Classic Texts, and anything else that might have been added. There's also a -lot- of pictures on site.
_Do_ download the Herbal Energetics - these are summaries of how to prepare and use plants you already know in ways you already know (even though you didn't necessarily know that you can use THAT plant in THIS way before reading the booklet).
- Howie Brounstein's homepage: http://www.botanicalstudies.net/
Columbine and Wizardry Herbs, wildcrafting school and herb catalog.
Go get a laugh at the Fad herbs, or read up on smoking herbs, or mugwort. Have fun.
- Jonathan Treasure's Herbal Bookworm page: http://www.herbological.com
All you need to know about herb books: excellent in-depth reviews, a list of must-read books, a list of stinkers, and a Reality Check.
- Henriette's Herbal Homepage: http://www.henriettesherbal.com
Home of the herbfaqs (you're reading part of one right now), you'll also find plant pictures, classic texts, plant names in several languages, archives, links - it's an extensive site. (Me? Biased? Naah.)
