Many such practices involved plants sought to incept dreams of a prophetic nature, obtaining knowledge of future loves, fortunes, births and deaths.
In Dream Divination Plants , Corinne Boyer draws together many strands of plant folklore, focusing on the popular magic of dream-divination. Bringing old herbal traditions to life with modern insight and a practical approach, she examines the many ways of using flowers, fruits, branches and leaves to forge contact with the oneiric realm.
