We all need a personal sanctuary - a place where we can be in harmony with the natural world and can nurture our bodies, minds, and souls. And this sanctuary doesn't have to be an exotic destination, it can be in your own backyard. In her new book, Creating Sanctuary, bestselling author Jessi Bloom taps into multiple sources of traditional plant wisdom to help readers find a deeper connection to the outdoor space they already have - no matter the size. Equal parts inspirational and practical, this engaging guide includes tips on designing a healing space, plant profiles for 50 sacred plants, recipes that harness the medicinal properties of plants, and simple instructions for daily rituals and practices for self-care. Projects include herbal-based salves and creams, an herbal dream pillow, a smudge stick, a more. Hands-on, inspiring, and beautiful, Creating Sanctuary is a must-have for nature lovers and gardeners seeking new ways to revitalise their lives.
