Under Pressure: Herbs For Resilience

Janet Kent & Roger Peet

In physics, resilience is the word used to describe the ability of a body to withstand stress. For us, resilience means the capacity to recover from or adjust to misfortune or change. This guide to twelve plants that can help increase or enhance resilience in times of upheaval and uncertainty includes essays about the physiology of stress, instructions for making herbal medicine, and twelve essays about particular plant medicines, their indications, and their use, accompanied by original woodcut illustrations of each species.

This zine is a collaboration between Justseeds artist Roger Peet and his colleague Janet Kent, an herbalist, writer, and founder of Medicine County Herbs and the Terra Sylva School of Herbal Medicine, both based out of rural Eastern North Carolina.

The cover is screenprinted by hand on heavy 100lb stock.
