Weeds in the Heart
This is a unique and unusual herbal book—a labor of love by herbalist Nathaniel Hughes and artist Fiona Owen. It is not a book of cures; it is a book of doorways. Through rich storytelling, first-hand accounts of plant meetings, and tales of healing, the consciousness that can emerge within these plant-human relationships reveals itself.
Illustrated throughout with full color gilded illustrations, this beautiful case-bound volume has to be seen to be believed.
Nathaniel Hughes has a background in the sciences. After completing a chemistry degree at Edinburgh University, he studied herbal medicine at a post-graduate level for 4 years in Scotland, and he has been practicing herbalism and healing for over 10 years. His work is to dig through the layers to find the root causes of disease patterns, identifying subconscious impulses that fundamentally affect how we use our bodies, and therefore, how our bodies “use” dis-ease to tell us when something is out of balance.

Fiona Owen is a British artist, living and working in Gloucestershire. Fiona paints in oil on panel and gilds her work with 24ct. English gold leaf in the tradition of the medieval manuscripts. Inspiration for her extraordinarily intricate, lyrical paintings is drawn from her native landscape - the flora and fauna and the changing seasons, and her Celtic inheritance. She endeavors to capture the elusive Wild Magic that is the genius loci - the spirit unique to each place. Her paintings are a celebration of, and homage to, Nature.
