Culpeper's Complete Herbal - Planetary Herbs

Updated: Jul 31, 2021

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruciata_laevipesThis is a list of the herbs mentioned in Culpeper's Complete Herbal sorted by what classical planet they are associated with. The zodiac sign associated with the herb , if one is mentioned, is listed by the herb in parentheses. I highly recommend searching within the text for details about the herbs, but this list will be a handy quick reference.



This link will lead to a list that shows all the Latin names and different common names. I'll be putting some of the common/easy-to-find ones in bold. Click the name of the herb to see the Wikipedia page about it, if I was able to find it (or if I was able to make a reasonable guess).
