About this item
The Herbal Tarot is another Rider-Waite style deck, except it pictures a different herb that corresponds with each card,
such as garlic for the Tower, and a lotus in the Ace of Cups. Some herbal knowledge (or the companion book) would be
necessary to read with this deck.

side from being well used, is beautifully illustrated. For example, the back of the cards have a sea-green background with a rosemary border. As if marking elemental corners, there are four eight-petal flowers in blue, as well as two red ladybugs and two white flowers.
The illustration of the cards themselves are done with the traditional meaning attributed, but also with the herb/plant/flower which attunes to the card. I find this to be even more helpful in understanding the meaning of particular cards. For instance, a person may not "get" the feeling for the Ten of Cups right away, but with the background of the herb marijuana/hemp it becomes a little clearer. In addition, the Tower is represented with garlic, Knight of Wands by aconite, Four of Swords by mullein, Ace of Wands by yarrow. Each of these adds an additional "feel" to the cards that I find are not present in traditional decks.
I would recommend that anyone who is interested in both the Tarot and herbs to seek out this deck.
