From the creator of Folk Magic and Healing!

Discover the fascinating folklore, history and malignant properties of toxic plants.

‘If you drink much from a bottle marked ‘poison’, it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.’

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Poisonings are among the most memorable deaths in history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Concealed and deliberate, it’s a crime that must be planned in advance. And yet there is a fine line between healing and poisoning – Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!

In Botanical Curses and Poisons, Fez Inkwright returns to folkloric and historical archives to uncover historical uses and the fascinating, untold stories behind deadly plants,witching herbs and fungi.

Beautifully illustrated by Inkwright, this treasury of folklore is packed with insight, lore and the revealed mysteries of everyday flora – perfect for gardeners, writers, folklorists, witches and general knowledge buffs alike!

Fez Inkwright is an illustrator, author, and folklorist. Her greatest passions are botany, nature, primitive religions, and folklore, which flavour most of her work. For the past eight years she has produced work for children’s books, hand-drawn maps, and tattoo design, and now spends her time indulging in conservation work and writing. She lives in Bristol, UK, with two cats and several hundred bees.

#Veganuary: Listen to Sara Botero on The Bloody Vegans Podcast

This week’s Veganuary inspiration comes from Sara Botero and The Bloody Vegans Podcast!

#Veganuary: Yes, it’s OK to be vegan-ish or flexitarian!

By Sarah Wray

This blog post is written from my own personal experience as a self-described vegan-ish flexitarian, with a lot of help from Sara Botero‘s insightful new guidebook The Essential Vegan Toolkit. I’m not an expert on this topic and I do not claim to speak for everybody!

While some of us are still trying to wake up after the holidays, January has decided rather rudely to continue moving forward – leaving us nearly two weeks into 2020 already! And if you made a new year’s resolution, there’s a good chance you’re struggling with it at this point. An estimated 80% of resolutions are failed or forgotten by February each year. There are a lot of reasons for this, a huge one being that many people see a one-time step off the so-called righteous path as a reason to quit entirely.

The Garden is a beautiful story of healing and growth through mindfulness and gardening.

Joanna is a high-powered finance consultant who’s been signed off work after having a nervous breakdown. Seeking more than just something to pass the time, she travels to Kyoto, Japan, to immerse herself in the arts of zen gardening and meditation.

Returning home – and to the challenges of daily life – Joanna finds peace and a new sense of calm through nurturing her own garden – and her soul

I have happily forgotten what used to concern me before all this.
I am the strongest thing in the world.
I have an infinity of precious details to smile upon

a passive look at self-awareness that is rare in this medium, presented beautifully in hard-back” – UK Anime Network

“Calm, contemplative and refreshing, The Garden is a seed of surprise just waiting for you to plant it.” – Now Read This

“The rat race consumes such a vast amount of our time, and it’s easy to get mentally lost in the pressure of work sometimes – to the detriment of the very thing that makes you ‘you’. Sean and Fumio capture this perfectly in [The Garden].” – Read it Daddy

Meet Natalie Dormady, creator of 365 Gentle Reminders

‘Doodling rainbows reminds me that storms will always end, and the light will return. Flowers and bumblebees remind me of how important each one of us are in this world.’

Natalie Dormady
Natalie Dormady, aka @littlearthlings – author, artist and creator of 365 Gentle Reminders

It’s a new year, and for many it’s a time of renewal and working toward a better relationship with themselves. We could all probably do with some self-compassion after the excess and family tensions that often come with the holidays, coupled with the deep darkness we experience in the winter (in our part of the world, at least!).

That’s why we’ve published 365 Gentle Reminders (just £9.99 during January 2020), a page-a-day book of positive, uplifting reminders illustrated by the inspiring Natalie Dormady. After battling with mental illnesses, Natalie found her passion for art while on her recovery journey, and she’s been sharing her Gentle Reminders on Instagram for a few years now. Get to know Natalie through our interview, below…
