There are few things I love more than to spend a few hours wandering a bookstore, checking out new arrivals and reading the "suggested books" tags employees write. Think of this page as my suggested books tag - I've collected my current favorite books, e-books, online courses, blogs, and more all on this page. Like any good library, this page is constantly evolving. I hope this page is a useful resource for you, wherever you are on your path.

Herbal Medicine Reference

I’ve listed books here that I either own or have read (and liked!), as well as websites I refer to often. Some websites require membership to view; I’ve marked these with a ($).

  • Herbarium – ($) – The Herbal Academy’s database of plant monographs, articles related to herbalism/herbs/etc., and mini classes. Monographs are particularly extensive and helpful, including references to scientific studies (if thats your thing!). $45/year.

Other Resources

Here are a few other books and websites that I really love!


  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – One of my favorite books, and a short read. I read it (almost) once a year, and inevitably find something new in the story each time.
  • The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg – Really interesting info on making new habits and changing old ones.
  • Tiny, Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed – This book is full of heartfelt advice and new life mottoes. I inevitably find some help – and some tears – every time I read this book.
  • When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chödrön – I can’t overstate how much I value this book, except to say that I went and bought a second copy when I needed it and couldn’t find my original copy. Any and all of Pema’s books are treasures.
  • You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero


  • The Greatest Road Trip – Beautiful photos and useful information on almost all of the US National Parks. (Created in 2016 – make sure to verify any travel information.)
