The Urban Herbalist

A Guide to Medicinal Plants of Midwest Cities

Rosita has written a book for city dwellers who long to know more about the healing gifts of nature. Here are 78 fascinating medicinal plants for you to discover right outside your door in your local neighborhood, city parks, and empty lots.


While Rosita is in the USA, she conducts herb walks in and around the Chicago area. This convinced her of the need to help city dwellers know the plants that grow in their back yards and city streets.

With this book in your hands, whether beginner or practicing herbalist, you will learn to identify healing and edible plants and trees and how to prepare teas, salves, poultices, and syrups that can help you live a longer, healthier, better quality life. The easy-to-follow recipes guide you every step of the way.

Rosita, who spent decades in Central America, shares much of the wisdom she learned from traditional healers there. She transmits her knowledge in layperson’s language, accompanied by charming anecdotes. Vintage illustrations of each plant make this book a collectible.
