If you are wanting to make your Herbal Grimore, I have some tips that may help you with your creation of it.
Let me first start by saying your Herbal Grimore does not have be be fancy. It does not have to be perfect. Decorate it how you want. This is you, not no one else. Only you. With that said, lets begin.
[I apologize first hand if you do not agree to anything I have said or I have the wrong information.]
Your Herbal Grimore could be a notebook, binder, electronical or anything you want it to be. I suggest using a binder because you can easily take out what information you need and put it back with ease. If you are using a binder, your work should be typed with a picture of the herb. You should have those protective paper covers so your work is not ripped. If you are using a notebook, I suggest using a five subject notebook, and just ripping out the subject dividers so it would just be one large book. If you are doing it electronically, software I would suggest is Microsoft Excel, Open Office, and ywriter5. Be creative! No matter what you are using, be creative! You have your own ways of being creative so use them! Like I said, this is you, no one else.
The content in your Herbal Grimore should be the information of the herbs you commonly use. Start with some common kitchen herbs and spices, such as Onion, Garlic, Cinnamon, Oregano, Basil, Thyme, etc. Your herbs should be in alphabetical order for easy reference, but that is not needed.
-So, what should your information contain?
Your information should contain the scientifical name of the herb, a picture of that herb, where it is common, the medicinal uses of the herb, folklore concerning that herb, and lastly the magickal properties of the herb. ****You must note if the herb is poisonous or not. This is very important****
You can put recipes in your HG as well. The recipes should be ones that you have made yourself but you can have recipes from others as well.
****When you experiment with herbs, be careful! Experiment with herbs you commonly use! Do not experiment with new herbs until you know if they are safe or not!!!****
I hope I was able to help you.
