The Herbal Tarot combines the symbolic healing properties of herbs with the tarot. The deck was drawn by artist Candis Cantin under the direction of herbalist Michael Tierra. According to the creators, "the Herbal Tarot is a tool for studying the psycho-physical energy of herbs. It follows the general assignments of the Rider-Waite deck, but each card is assigned an individual medicinal herb based upon intuition, astrological and energetic values." For example, ginseng is assigned to the Fool and Chamomile to the Ace of Swords. The familiar name of the herb is written at the top of each card and the tarot name at the bottom.
