"Cassandra Quave’s life is like a tropical forest: Varied, colorful, bursting with life and laced with hidden paths that must be constantly cleared to move along them. Her new memoir guides readers through a world of plants and the people entwined with them. The story is sometimes dark but mostly uplifting, lit up by her personal revelations and scientific discoveries."

7 Essential Medicinal Mints You Can Grow and Use in Teas (1)
Out this week! I wrote for Spirituality and Health Magazine about some of my favorite medicinal mints that are easy to grow and are delicious in herbal teas!

"Herbs from the mint family are not only pharmacologically powerful, but can be easily grown throughout the year."

Feature in Chemical and Engineering News

"Cassandra Leah Quave’s work defies simple categorization. As an ethnobotanist, her research encompasses natural product chemistry, microbiology, medicine, botany, and journalism. One day, she might interview a village’s traditional healer on how to prepare a remedy for a skin infection; on another, she might use a low-cost fraction collector made from Lego Mindstorms pieces to isolate a molecule that could eventually become a medicine."
