Wild medicines grow all around us. Each of us flows between different plant medicines as we walk outside every day. Many of us yearn to connect with the land and elements around us in a much more meaningful way than we usually manage. This book serves to help connect people to plants and the landscape around us through rewilding exercises, teachings about ethical foraging and journaling. Plant allies are our friends – when we connect with them, we open up a whole world of possibility and magic.

If you want to learn how to grow or make a wild apothecary for your own use, this book will help you on your journey. The book starts with how to rewild the self, how to connect more with nature, how to get outside and see the plants around you in different ways. If you’ve wanted to learn how to make medicines, this book goes through many different forms of remedy making, guiding you through the processes, enabling you to make your own wonderful plant medicines.

The majority of the book describes how to help people with plant allies at different stages of life from birth to death. Each chapter illustrates the energetics of that particular time of life and describes conditions that often arise at that time of life and how to work with plant allies and lifestyle to aid each condition. You will find rewilding exercises pertinent to that time of life and journaling exercises to help you find your own connection to nature and wild medicines. There is a whole world of knowledge awaiting you, igniting all of your senses. This book is a stepping stone into that wonder.


Amaia Dadachanji encountered herbal medicine whilst living and working on organic farms abroad over twenty years ago. Inspired by a naturopath she had met, Amaia embarked on a 4 year degree course in Herbal Medicine in London, finishing with a first class degree, several awards and a wealth of knowledge and wisdom from her mentors who included the inspiring Christopher Hedley.  She then travelled to Ecuador and India to broaden her knowledge and explore Ayurveda and the use of herbal medicine within this system of healing. Her return to the UK found her relocating to the Gloucestershire countryside, where she started her family and built her practice as a medical herbalist. Amaia runs her Wild Apothecary clinic set amidst a beautiful plant nursery, treating clients and running courses and workshops.
