Basic (Magical) Herbs Lesson 1

Along with my classes on Living the Wiccan Life and First Degree Correllian Clergy through Witch School, I am also taking a class on Basic Herbs.
The class offers 3 herbs a week for 10 weeks for a total of 30 herbs.
I thought I would share those herbs and my additional research on them here. I wont be sharing all of what the class offers, for that you will have to go and sign up for it yourself. Its a free course, so there's no reason not to.
