Culpeper’s Complete Herbal
by Nicholas Culpeper

It’s been the classic for over 350 years. As charming and elegant as the 17th-century original, this groundbreaking herbal guide combines Nicholas Culpeper’s fascinating text with up-to-date information and modern, delightful full-color illustrations. Culpeper—a famed astrologer, physician, and author—covered almost 400 herbs and plants from Aconite, Adder’s Tongue, and Agaric to Yarrow, Yew, and Yucca. For each entry, he gave both the Latin and common names of each, details on where to find it, and its flowering time, astrology, and medicinal virtues. Following the alphabetical list of herbs comes the inventory of illnesses and their cures, as it appeared in 1649. Many of these plants still occupy a prominent position in the dispensaries of today’s herbalists, so in addition to Culpeper’s entertaining and often caustic comments and descriptions there are notes on contemporary usage by an established practitioner. A beautiful and useful handbook.

Little Witches Ball fun for all

Bright Blessings.

“It’s not fair,” said a small girl to her mother. And that is what started the seed in the mind of Reverend Gerrybrete Leonard of the Universal Society of Ancient Ministry to host a ball for the Pagan children of Southeastern Michigan this October. So, on October 10, a VFW hall was transformed by a team of dedicated volunteers from the Universal Society of Ancient Ministry, Witches of Michigan, and the Michigan Witch’s Ball.

Early in the day, a team of dedicated volunteers descended upon the little hall in Warren and made mundane magic happen. Black and orange streamers, decorations and wrist bands, and over 200 pounds of chocolate decked the place. Festive costumes, seemingly endless bowls of candy, and an empire of soft drinks were their mission to establish, and this they did well.

Admission for adults was $7.50, children were $5.00, and any guests of the discarnate variety were free of charge. Children boo-gied to the sounds of 80’s hits courtesy of a volunteer Disc Jockey. The affair lasted from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., but little eyes and faces were drooping around 9:45 that evening. All the pizza one could eat was also included in the entry fee.

Gordon Ireland was on hand to give his blessing to the event. As the face of the Midwest Witches Ball (Michigan Witches Ball), it was fitting that he bask in the joy of the event as the extension of his hard work and those of the volunteers who made it happen this year. Merlyn Firstborn and his lovely wife, known for Witches of Michigan, were on hand as well. Merlyn stood a vigilant, yet jubilant, watch over all as the children and families made merry.

The hit costume of the night was an ensemble enterprise. The evil queen from Snow White, the Dwarves, and even the Poison apple made an appearance that was not to be forgotten. Local Pagan and spiritual vendors also attended with their loved ones to make this a hit. This interfaith event welcomed all and Christian and Wiccan children partied into the night by this writers candy stash. A cache which was quite sizable, by the way.

This event is sure to become an treasured tradition. Next year, they are hoping to make it even bigger. Volunteers are always welcome. Well done, folks, well done.

Blessed Be.

Well you will be surprised to know that there is another way; a much healthier alternative that has been around for hundreds of years! Yes natural herbal cures have been around from the beginning of time but we rarely even use them because of the amount of media and advertising surrounding the importance of pharmaceutical synthetic drugs.
