Essential Herbal July/August 2020

WellOur first issue with no printed copies went out today.  I'm a little jangled, because new things of this magnitude are nerve-wracking.  It's a beautiful issue and I'm sure it will be well received.  Below you'll find the cover and table of contents.  If you've never read one of our magazines, there are several samples on OUR WEBSITE, at the very bottom of the page. 
My latest book -Herbal Medicine for Emotional Healing - is also available now!  You can get it from any major bookseller, or on my website.

But back to the magazine...
