Healing Powers and Myths of Indigenous Trees

• Healing powers and myths of indigenous trees
• Since ancient times roots, resin, sprouts and leaves have been used to prepare valuable cures and potions
• Susanne Fischer-Rizzi presents a collection of ancient tales, legends, myths, songs and rites that have accompanied us for thousands of years

The tree is one of the most ancient symbols of mankind. The symbol of the tree of life can be found in all cultures. Just as ancient is the knowledge about the healing powers of trees. Through all ages, people have prepared valuable medicine from roots, resin, sprouts and leaves.

Susanne Fischer-Rizzi has collected ancient tales, legends, myths, songs and rites that have accompanied us throughout the ages of time and live on even today: the Christmas tree, the blessing of palm leaves on Palm Sunday, maypoles and roofing ceremonies. Drawing from long years of experience with plant healing she added to each tree a chapter on its healing effects, along with tried recipes for home-made teas, ointments, tinctures, compresses etc. These are complemented by recipes for delicious dishes and drinks such as maple ice cream, fir honey, blackthorn liqueur, elder cake or quince bread. The perceptively captured illustrations by Peter Ebenhoch underline the individual characteristics and personality of each tree.

A rich and impressive book full of precious information. A must-have for tree lovers.
