Other Medicines

Off the drowning topic, does anyone know of any good sites on herblore or similar items that could be useful? Athelas is all well and good, but you can't use it for everything, after all!

 

 

Re: Other Medicines

Hi, Tathrin. You can try this: botanical.com As for me, I've studied medicinal herbalism and I usually look up in my manuals, every time I need something like this. Sometimes though, I just make something up. Hope I helped, werecat

 

 

Re: Other Medicines

Sorry, just noticed there was a reply! Yes, thank you muchly!

 

 

Re: Other Medicines

Thanks, Werecat! I found excellent information on herbal treatments for infertility, for a story that's beginning to take shape in the back of my brain. We had used that site, years ago, for research for some of my daughter's school projects. I had lost track of it - thanks for reminding me! Ann

Hi, Ann! I'm glad you found it useful. If you need anything more, let me know. I just love herbal stuff. Werecat

 

 

Re: Other Medicines

Thank you for the URL. I added it to my collection of research URLs. As a researcher, I collect a diverse set of reference materials including several human ones. It is amazing what information a writer might need especially since the gals I beta write in worlds from Middle Earth to the American Old West to present day and even into the future.

Re: Other Medicines

Hi, RiverOtter, and apologies for the late reply. This Holidays' Season has been anything but festive to me. *sigh* It is amazing what information a writer might need especially since the gals I beta write in worlds from Middle Earth to the American Old West to present day and even into the future. *nods* I've found myself wondering about several things recently in the course of writing stories, from cat related superstitions to Arabic poetry. Goggle is a wonderful thing, IMHO. Werecat
