Description

A Field Guide to Utilize 94 of the World’s Most Healing Plants

by Jane Barlow Christensen and Brian R. Christensen

This beautiful, 280 page full color plant identification guide details the medicinal properties of 94 of Mother Nature’s most healing plants.

You will find a full color photo, a hand drawn plant illustration and instructions of where each of these plants grow, what part of the plant to use, what time of day to collect them, when the medicinal properties are at their highest and how to prepare them into a tincture, decoction, poultice, emergency field use etc.

Jane and her son Brian have updated, reformatted and added to Dr. Max Barlow’s original book, “From the Shepherd’s Purse,” which has long been out of print.

If this book saves you ONE trip to the doctor it will have paid for itself tenfold.

Teach a man to fish and he will eat for his lifetime.

Be the one of the first to own a copy of this long anticipated book!

**Free shipping does not apply to the book.  There will be a $11.50 charge for orders in the US.

What others are saying

  1. WOW! What a beautifully made & informative herbalism book!

    Melissa S

    I just received my copy for Christmas, and I am very impressed. I have quite a collection of books on herbalism, but this one is the most beautifully made. It is a large book, and quality of the paper and photography outshines all of the others. The layout of the book is user friendly, and I like that the information is structured in such a way one can quickly read the benefits of each herb as well as the medicinal uses, forms of preparation, dosages, and other tips. The book is not inexpensive like so many available on amazon, but now that I own it I can say that it is most definitely worth it!

  2. Thank you for this beautiful resource!!!!

    Johnette Fawley

    I just received this beautiful, amazing book! Last night I started reading it, but I’m not done yet. However, I may never be ‘done’ reading it. Because I will refer to it as a herbal medicine resource!! I read your loving tribute to your Dad in the beginning of the book, very special and beyond words! Thank you Jane , Brian and your team!

  3. I can't say enough good things about this book. Amazing.

    Hannah Hunter

    The photography to identify the herbs is first rate. Everyone needs to have a resource like this book. I am happy to receive it and now will buy some of their wonderful products. No I am not related to them, just a fan of their work. This is not on amazon and self published. Beautiful printing and fast shipping.

  4. A wonderful resource

    DB

    Your book just arrived and I’ve skimmed through it.

    Well done lady. What a gift you’ve given us. It is clear, concise, well
    laid out and a wealth of useful information to empower us to take our
    health and healing into our own hands. As you promised I can be my own
    Shaman (and yes it is beautiful too as your reviews have commented on) 🙂

    Thank you for taking the time to produce this wonderful resource. You
    have done us a great service and I am grateful for you sharing your vast
    storehouse of wisdom.

  6. Beautiful and informative

    Lucy

    I received my copy of “Be Your Own Shaman” and was very surprised that my indoor herb garden already has so many medicinal herbs. It’s great to now be able to identify all of their medicinal benefits. The book itself is lovely and makes a great gift for anyone with a garden!

  8. Beautiful Book

    Amy

    Such a beautiful and educational book. This book is so easy to find information about herbs and learn about them. I have From the Shepherd’s purse and now this one and love to see the evolution and expansion from this book.

  9. Beautiful

    Grace2885

    Not only a beautiful book, but so much education between the lovely textured covers. Thank you Jane and Brian for sharing your love of nature with us in this well thought out work of art.

  10. There is so much knowledge here

    Phillip

    I couldn’t believe how fast the package arrived. I’d been super curious to read your dad’s book for quite some time, but as you mentioned, it was hard to find and expensive to attain. So now I get the best of both worlds with “Be Your Own Shaman”! The book is beautiful, so sleek and beautifully illustrated. So much knowledge here, I’m overwhelmed in the best possible way!

  11. A GENERATIONAL GIFT

    Sunny Schultz Bryson

    Oh My! Jane, this book is so beautiful I wanted to frame it! Thank you for creating a piece that is such a lovely reference book but also something to be handed down to your children and their children (unless of course you create an updated version – LOL) or shared with friends. What is a better gift then one that shows people how to create their own herbal treatments.

  12. great book

    Burton Guardipee

    Great book for a quick reference to how these 94 medicinal plants will help heal and improve your life. Did not know that Oregano could be used for Asthma, Bronchitis, Heartburn and more. Love that you can learn and prepare your own tinctures and other medicinal preparations.

    I just opened my package with the book you and Brian wrote, and I am actually floored!!

I cannot wait to pour myself many cups of tea and dive deep into the learnings of this book! It is incredible, and I cannot wait!!

    Bonnie W.

    Your new book is absolutely beautiful!!! Thank you for putting your knowledge into written word for everyone with a passion for herbs to enjoy! My only regret is that I didn’t think to ask you to sign it. This is such a well made book that I look forward to passing it on to my children to enjoy as well.
    With a grateful heart,

  18. THANK YOU!!!

    Rebecca

    I am HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY as I received my/your book yesterday late. I opened it this morning as I worked last night and didn’t actually get the package till this morning. Haven’t had a chance to go through it page by page, but did a quick page through and I absolutely love it. Such quality!!! I have thought in the past how helpful it would be to have you as my neighbor and that would truly be the best case scenario. The next best is having your book in my possession. Thank you so much Jane, it can and will be such a help during these times we are in. I will now “have you with me.” I received the Crypto Blend on Monday and I haven’t started taking it yet, but I know that will be a good product as well. Thanks so much for all you do and all your hard work you put into your book. It’s a beautiful book and so useful! I will definitely be putting it to good use and showing it off. All for this time.

  19. I'm blown away!

    Peggy

    My copies of Be Your Own Shaman arrived today. I was blown away with the quality of the publication from the photography, paper, binding, and of course, the scientific data. I was also touched by your loving tribute and the foreword.
    We’ll done, Jane❣️
    I purchased a copy as a graduation gift for my granddaughter who has shown great interest in herbal medicine. I know she will be excited to start her own journey with this text as her companion.
