Welcome to the Druid Alliance of North America
Our site is currently under construction as we are planting the seeds for growth.

Herbology encompasses two main terms of identification: an herbalist and an herbologist. An herbologist studies herbs and plants, and an herbalist uses them for magical and medicinal benefits. An herbologist can be an herbalist, and an herbalist can be (and likely is) an herbologist. Using these two distinguishing factors, we have two sections of recommendations—one for medicinal and the other general.
We will not be using the term magical or magic here; for some, it is all magic.

Regional / Local books should not be overlooked as useful references to help understand your immediate environment of herbs.

We in the Druid Community do not DEAL with any forms of hate. We stand with and for the helpless, the sick, and the weak. We are the voice for the ones with none. We value all the colors of the rainbow that includes the colors of all spiritualities, religions, races,  and sexualities.
