Muthi and Myths of the African Bush


Product Description
Product Details


"Muthi and Myths from the African Bush" by Heather Dugmore and Ben-Eric van Wyk. Even though I have never been to South Africa I found I could not put this book down. It is a fascinating study of each of 52 plants which are indigenous, with botanical and common names. Van Wyk, a professor of plant botany, supplied Dugmore, who is a mystic and psychologist and healer, with the plant science and some of the stories and myths of the use of these plants. Dugmore for years was a serious student of the use of nature's pharmacology for healing her patients and the use of natural plants in trances. Thus the book grew from the legends and ancient tribal uses of these plants by the tribal wise women who are the respected healers. The book gives details of how various parts of the many plants are used for curing many different physical and psychological ills. These uses were discovered through hundreds of years of trial and error and have been handed down to fewer and fewer people, so this book is a great compendium of this precious knowledge. Fascinating reading!
