Having thoroughly enjoyed reading Fez Inkwright’s ‘Botanical Curses and Poisons‘ my husband was keen to get his hands on further work by Fez Inkwright and he struck lucky as Liminal 11 very kindly sent us the latest edition of Fez Inkwrights ‘Folk Magic and Healing – An Unusual History of Everyday Plants’.
Plants have played a key role in our existence throughout history. Plants are an essential food source, medicine base, religious aid, and building material. The way in that we have domesticated and repurposed plants over time has been a core part of human development.
I’m rather lucky as I’ve lived the majority of my life in the countryside and over the years I’ve spent time picking fruits, plants and such-like from hedgerows and wild-growing areas. Plants are engrained into the myth and lore of humanity – there are many old-wives tales regarding plants, their nutritional, healing, and medicinal properties, some of which I have utilised over the years. Throughout the world, these myths, stories, and tales upon plants have become entwined with stories of local spirits, deities, and more ancient legends.
