This is a small and humble compilation of herbs found on both the Korean peninsula as well as the North American continent spanning from the Northwest (where Jin lives, on the land of the Medicine Creek Treaty tribes along the Salish sea), to the Northeast (where Shin lives, on Lenape and Wappinger land).

Shin and Jin do not claim to know the full extents of the magic, deep strength, and properties of these medicinal herbs, nor the different ways in which people have traditionally used these herbs throughout the world. They are drawing rather from their personal experiences, and the drawing out of a story and magic that connects plants to people, and people to land.
