Henriette Kress

Henriette Kress, known as "cyberspace's herbal archivist" is a well-known Finnish herbalist who has developed one of the most encyclopedic noncommercial web sites on herbal medicine worldwide. It contains archives on several public and non public herbal forums, a photographic database of 8,000 botanical plant photos, and reprints of 20 major classic herbal works which had been largely lost to history. The reprints contain information on 4200 different plants, plus those not yet in the plant name database. (For purposes of comparison, a typical Chinese herbalist might use 300 herbs, an American herbalist 50 - 100 and a native Cherokee medicine man 800) The classic texts include major works like

  • King's American Dispensatory
  • Harvey Wickes Felter's Eclectic Materia Medica
  • Finley Ellingwood's American Materia Medica
