Hygieia: A Woman's Herbal was the first book of its kind to interweave the ancient practice of herbalism with women's consciousness and holistic health. It is an encyclopedic work covering birth control, menstruation, menopause, pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, psychoactive herbs, abortions, nutritional and self-healing remedies, infertility, and aphrodisiacs.

Personal stories, dreams, and poems enliven the text, which has many drawings and photos of women and their plant allies. Complete with three indexes and a glossary of mythological, feminist and gynecological terms. A useful and evocative reference for every woman concerned with her soul/psyche as well as her feminine health.
