Herbal medicine has once again come to the forefront of the public’s mind. Without research, many think that herbs are safe. Many are, yet many can be just as deadly as a dose of arsenic.

Most everyone knows Socrates died from ingesting Hemlock. Have you heard about the Celtic chieftain who committed suicide by Yew? How about the duels between rivals who ate just half of a poison bean?

From Abrus precatorius to Viscum album, Master Herbalist Deborah Martin takes us on a journey of discovery … ninety-five herbs that, while they had or have their medicinal and magical uses, can be deadly.

About the Author

Deborah J. "DJ" Martin left the frozen tundra (Minnesota) many moons ago and now lives in the north Georgia mountains with her husband, their crazy cats and numerous woodland creatures. She is the author of Herbs: Medicinal, Magical, Marvelous! (O-Books, 2009) and A Green Witch’s Formulary (Balboa Press, 2011), as well as the urban fantasy novel Stressed! Ogre’s Assistant Book One (available in e-book format on Amazon and Smashwords).

If she's not clickety-punching numbers for her accounting clients or writing, you can probably find her in the garden, visiting her grandchildren or in her recliner with her nose stuck in a book.
