The Herbalist's Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth and Beyond

We just cannot leave from our Bookshelf section as yet: we have more goodies for you! A lovely discount coupon for the excellent new book from Carole Guyett. In collaboration with the publisher Aeon Books, we have also got to give a gentle ‘baby shower’ to the newcomer in the AUTUMN issue of Aromatika!

Carole Guyett has been a practising medical herbalist for more than 35 years and ‘The Herbalist's Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth and Beyond: Herbal Therapeutics for the Childbearing Year’ is a profoundly comprehensive manual of holistic herbal therapeutics for pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Throughout the many chapters the author guides us through this extensive knowledge-base, exploring the different stages of pregnancy from the magical moment of conception to measuring gestational age and what is happening in the temple of the body. We accompany the journey of the embryo throughout the semesters of pregnancy with self-explanatory and detailed descriptions going beyond the biological and addressing the spiritual and energetic adjustments in the context of herbal wisdom with a mission – as the author says – "It is my belief that most experienced herbal practitioners learn to integrate this kind of awareness with scientific knowledge and this integration is crucial for best practice." Along with the safety recommendations for herbs, we get a useful review for essential oils.

You can read our review in our AUTUMN issue of AROMATIKA Magazine 9.3 and if this is a subject of deep interest for you, please follow the link and use discount code HG20 for 20% off for this book on the Aeon Books website. The code is valid until 30 November 2022.
