Here you will find the spirit of the great sixteenth-century herbalist, his caustic observations about the practices of his time, the values he placed on his herbs and their medicinal values.

The addition of prevailing views by a modern practitioner enables you to complete the progress made and it makes truly fascinating reading.

A man of substance himself, Nicholas Culpeper was greatly influenced by the contrast between the lifestyle of his family and that of the working population of London.

He had a deep commitment to the health of his impoverished clients and a strong antagonism towards apothecaries who preserved Latin as their lingua franca to help them to sell expensive imports of questionable value to people who could not afford them.

Culpeper worked with English herbs in the English language and frequently indicated to his clients where in the country side their medicines could be found naturally. Though he died at only 38, he was undoubtedly a popular apothecary and his ideas persist to this day.

Comments: I stand in awe of Culpeper's knowledge of herbs and healing, especially considering the point in history in which his research was conducted. I would recommend his research for anyone to read, whether you're an herbalist or simply someone interested in the natural healing realm.
