@Facemask: What useful information did you discover from the link SilentSyren was kind enough to suggest to you, the Scott Cunningham Herb Encyclopedia pdf? I found some very interesting things that I will definitely be keeping in mind and/or putting to use in my own magical workings (my thanks to you, SilentSyren!). It will be a great reference tool for me. And it is available to view online too, which is an added bonus since it is over 300 pages long. So, after you peruse it, perhaps we can compare notes!
