There are plenty of guides available for getting started with Alchemy but how do you know where to start. This is my recommended reading list, JUST TO START! I will follow-up later with more advanced, well written guides, on the subject.

I suggest these Herb Books:

The Herb and Spice Companion” target=”_blank”>The Herb and Spice Companion by Webb and Craze (for common herbs, if your buying)

Rodale’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs” target=”_blank”>Rodale’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs (I know its old, but its thick has medicinal values and pictures)

The Complete Illustrated Encyclopedia of Magical Plants, Revised: A Practical Guide to Creating Healing, Protection, and Prosperity using Plants, Herbs, and Flowers” target=”_blank”>The Complete ILLUSTRATED Encyclopedia of Magical Plants (for strictly magickal purposes)

Or Even one of the many editions of ” target=”_blank”>Scott Cunningham’s Encyclopedia Of Magickal Herbs (and I am NOT a Scott Cunningham fan)

I suggest these extremely REAL Alchemy Books:

Sorcerer’s Stone: A Beginner’s Guide to Alchemy” target=”_blank”>Sorcerer’s Stone by Hauck ( a break down of Alchemy)

The Path of Alchemy: Energetic Healing & the World of Natural Magic (Pathways to Enlightenment)” target=”_blank”>The Path Of Alchemy by Stavish (a down to earth hands on approach)

The Alchemists Handbook: Manual for Practical Laboratory Alchemy” target=”_blank”>The Alchemist’s Handbook (the more technical manual)

or even The Weiser Concise Guide to Alchemy (The Weiser Concise Guide Series)” target=”_blank”>The Weiser Concise Guide To Alchemy (very basic)

These are, by far, a concise way to start learning and honing your alchemy skills. 

If you have any other recommendations or questions, please let me know in the comments. Thank you and Blessed Be!
