Oracle Card Decks for Herbalists
Looking for an oracle card deck for an herbalist? Look no further -
My first reading deck was given to me as a gift after graduating college, and it was an herbal deck. Since then, I've amassed quite a collection of decks and have had the chance to try out many of them, though, herbal decks still remain one of my favorite styles of decks.
Here is a list of a few of my favorite reading decks for herbalists, botanists, and plant science lovers -
The Herbal Tarot (1988)
One of the original herbal reading decks available, The Herbal Tarot was co-created by Michael Tierra and Candice Cantin, and it can be used as either a traditional Tarot deck or as an oracle deck. Comes with 78-cards and it is often used in companionship with the guidebook, The Spirit of Herbs. This was one of my first herbal decks!
Pythia Botanica Oracle (2016)
This 48-card deck is a limited edition artist-run by Nicole Rallis of Leila + Olive. Complete with a guidebook and rooted in the mythology of Pythia, an ancient priestess also known as the Oracle of Delphi, it features golden gilded edges and tea stained cards for an antique feel. This deck can be read with traditional Tarot style spreads, but the deck also comes with instructions on how to read the cards.
Power of Flowers Card Deck (2014)
This 32-card deck by Isha Lerner includes shamanic messages and poems from each flower, images of divinity from many traditions, and a guidebook. The deck also includes information on using the essence of the flower for further vibrational healing.
Great deck for shamanic healers, flower essence specialists, and herbalists who specialize in floral preparations, this deck can be found on Power Flower Essences.
The Herbal Healing Deck (2016)
The Herbal Healing Deck is an oracle deck with 48-cards that have been divided into four suits: Roots, Herbs, Flowers, and Trees. The first deck release for both artists, it comes excellent imagery, a guidebook, and case. Co-developed by herbalist Sarah Baldwin and shamanic artist Ashley Verkamp, learn more about the authors here.
This deck can be found on Amazon it's great for both novice and seasoned readers.
Druid Plant Oracle (2008)
The Druid Plant Oracle comes with 36-reading cards and a guidebook which provides 6 different ways of doing readings with the cards, though you can technically use any method with this deck. A favorite deck of herbalists who are familiar with or interested in learning Celtic, druid and old world traditions. My mom just got this one, and it's the sister deck of the Druid Animal Oracle, which was first published in 1995.
Book Depository currently offers free shipping and the cheapest pricing on this deck - see it here.
Okay, so these are just a few of my favorites.
I always recommend that everyone have at least a few different decks of different types in their collection to mix and match messages for a better effect and a clearer reading. Each deck tends to be better at looking into certain things and providing certain types of data and outlooks. They're like scientific instruments and with some new decks, it can be like learning a new language - but that's all part of the fun.

Enjoy your plant-based reading cards!

*When giving a reading to another person with these cards, pay attention to any lead words that you hear while giving the reading, as these can be clairaudient messages coming through to assist with supplementing the message. We are focusing on Clairaudience this month in The Membership Program if you'd like to learn more, please join us. If you're already in the program, try the Mental Decluttering Meditation (in the archives here) before sitting down to shuffle your deck for a more in-tune read.
