Banyen's Description: 

We all need a personal sanctuary—a place where we can be in harmony with the natural world and can nurture our bodies, minds, and souls. And this sanctuary doesnt have to be an exotic destination, it can be in your own backyard. In Creating Sanctuary, permaculture designer Jessi Bloom taps into multiple sources of traditional plant wisdom to help readers find a deeper connection to the outdoor space they already have—no matter the size.

Equal parts inspirational and practical, this engaging guide includes tips on designing a healing space, plant profiles for 50 sacred plants, recipes that harness the medicinal properties of plants, and simple instructions for daily rituals and practices for self-care. Projects include herbal-based salves and creams, an herbal dream pillow, a smudge stick, a more. Hands-on, inspiring, and beautiful, Creating Sanctuary is a must-have for nature lovers and gardeners seeking new ways to revitalize their lives.

Just as you can decorate an interior space in a way that suits you and makes you feel happy, you can create a garden to nourish your spiritual and emotional well-being. All land is sacred. All life is sacred. Therefore, anytime you infuse a space with positive intentions and honour the relationship you have with the life and energy inside that space, it can become an everyday sanctuary for you. This book will help guide you on that journey.
