The Best Beginner Herbalist Books & Where to Find Them

Truly useful beginner herbalist books can be hard to come by if you aren’t sure what you’re looking for. I’ve done the hard job of reading through many great (and some less great) books for beginners! Here are my favourites and where you can find them today!

Where to Find These Books

I always recommend checking local stores and libraries for beginner herbalist books for ease of access and reduction in shipping cost/emissions. However, if you can’t find what you need locally, here are some good options.

  • Biblio is a used book marketplace full of out-of-print, rare, and used books! You can find most of the titles below on Biblio at any given time. I highly recommend using this site opposed to buying new if you can avoid it.
  • Thriftbooks is another amazing site where you can find extremely well-priced used books! I love to shop here and grab up a few herbal titles at a time whenever I can.
  • Mercari occasionally has a title or two that I am looking for, so it’s worth checking anytime you have a book you want and can’t find it elsewhere.
  • Amazon almost always has the books I need when I can’t find them used anywhere else. They also have a function that allows you to see slightly damaged, used, or otherwise discounted options of the title you’re purchasing!
