Spiral Nature has reviewed the “Herbal Alchemist’s Handbook,” which is probably of interest to people working with oil and herbs.
As always, a solid and intelligent review. The reviewer had the same problems with this book that I have with a lot of books on the same topic:
The author claims her work is based on the ideas of Paracelsus, but the book lacks citations, a bibliography, or even suggested reading list. This is highly problematic as many of her attributions are not explained. Sometimes they are attributions that are more or less occult common knowledge, and other times the numbers, colours, herbs and their meanings vary from the common or traditional systems.
If you’re not reading Spiral Nature, you should be.

The Blue Flame Magick blog has a quite positive review of hir experience with Quadrivium Oils, but even nicer things to say about the feel of a real oil versus a synthetic oil.
