A few short-short reviews:

  • "We like your cards, very Henriette - neat, good looking and to the point. " -- Christopher Hedley and Non Shaw.
  • "damn girl, they are really a lovely wedding of art and practical magic, in service of the restoration and reinvention of our medicine tradition. bravo." -- Donna Chesner.
  • "Henriette Kress has reduced the complex world of herbalism down to basic herbs, principles, and indications. The student and beginner will find these beautiful cards helpful both for study and use. The gardener will know what to plant. Properties are described mostly in terms of the simple tastes of the herbs, which correspond to the pharmacology and the uses. This approach represents the mainstream of modern herbalism and is fully accessible to every level of expertise. A few helpful energetic indications are scattered through deck. With the internet full of all sorts of nonsense, doubtful information, and over-reactive 'contraindications' and dangers, this deck restores to us the pleasure, beauty, and fun of safe, simple herbalism. This is the herbalism I remember as a young person many years ago. The cards convey herbal happiness. I so appreciate this basic HEALTHY, WISE, BEAUTIFUL, SIMPLE approach. 'If you are in need of a hug,' to quote the chamomile card, drink chamomile tea, settle in to a comfy chair for a good read and enjoy." -- Matthew Wood.
  • "It's fabulous, everyone should have a copy." -- Debs Cook.
