She published her first book, The Herbal Apothecary, with Timber Press in 2015 and is in contract to write a second book with them and another book with Quanto Press. She speaks across the country at expos, conventions, schools and groups such as the NY Horticulture society. The Herb Shoppe was voted “the best apothecary in Portland” by Willamette Week and was written up in Portland Monthly magazine and The L Magazine in New York City. JJ and her shoppe have been featured in several blogs and Tumblr sites, including Gardenista, White & Warren Inspired, Kale and Coriander, Portland Healing Project, PoppySwap, and Girl Gift Gather. JJ appeared on “Green Living,” a BCAT television show in Brooklyn; the “Bread and Roses” radio show on Portland’s KBOO; and “Wise Woman Radio” with Susun Weed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book except...
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 31, 2020
This was a very nice book, very informative, I appreciated the pictures, the details on how to administer the herbs as well as instructions on how to produce the various applications of them.
HOWEVER there was one thing that really rubbed me the wrong way and ended up wasting my time when I was looking for a recipe for nausea for my mom; there is no listing in the index for nausea. It's listed under "tummy" or a partial reference under "stomach" and that's really not intuitive, especially for a very common issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars 🌷Valuable Resource on Making Herbal Medicine
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 14, 2018
The Herbal Apothecary is a fantastic book that covers various herbs and methods of using them for medicinal purposes, including herbal tea blends, tinctures, etc. There are beautiful photos, useful charts, great recipes, and instructions on how to use various herbs and infusions. Overall, this is one of my favorite books on herbs, one that any herbalist should have.

I'm aware of the mistake the author originally made with Red Root, but the whole book does NOT deserve to be negated because of one mistake. The entry has been edited since! This book is not worth one or even 3 stars in any way and I think it's irrational. So to make up for the 1 star reviews, I'm giving 5. This book is a valuable herbal resource. It's packed with really useful information for anyone interested in herbs and natural healing.
