Medicinal Plant Coloring Book: An Herb Guide

 Lilt Kids Coloring Books (Author) 2017


I've always loved coloring, even as an adult.  So when adult coloring became a thing, I was excited.  To me, coloring is a relaxing and soothing hobby.  I'm not a very good artist, but with the color page I can make someone else's art come to life.  I don't have goals I have to meet, no pressure.  I can start and stop at a minute's notice.  It is the perfect hobby to practice, and it doesn't cost a lot to do.


To begin my hobby, I had to visit a local bookstore (hmm, had to? umm I was itching to go as I love everything associated with books).  I promptly bought a bunch of supplies, among them, markers, crayons, colored pencils.  I also purchased a bag for my coloring craft, to put everything in, and as well needed to pick out several adult coloring books. As I strolled the aisles looking at all the different color books, I was so impressed with all the varieties and subject matter.  My favorites, of course, included all woodland subject matter; animals, mushrooms, fairies, farmland scenes.  But what I really wanted was one that had the subject matter pertaining to herbs or flowers.  I went online and found that yes, that does exist!  There are a few herb, garden, and botanical titles out there.  I chose this one.  If you want to begin your hobby of coloring, and you also want to learn a little about medicinal herbs, this is it.  It can help you in learning about the leaves and how the herb grows.  You can even get technical and look up the exact colors to use in your color endeavors.  Herbs inside include Aloe Vera, American Ginseng, Arnica, Belladonna, Bitter Nightshade, Chamomile, Chicory, Comfrey Yarrow, Dandelion, Echinacea, Elderberry, Lavender, Lily of the Valley, Marigold, Milk Thistle, Mint, Sage, Rosemary, Thorn Apple, Thyme, Cilantro, and Wild Rose.


There are 74 pages, and it is sure to keep you busy and relieving all that stress we build up this time of year.  It is also a good way to think about the plants we use medicinally and get to know their leaf shape and structure.  Have fun with this!
