There is a book called Physica,
I read a French edition, but there is an English translation,

Causes and Cures of Hildegard of Bingen, Charlotte, VT: MedievalMS, 2006,

Many of the researchers and translators point out that Hildegarde who was
not trained as a doctor, knew many herbs and shared her knowledge of herbs
who could be used in everydaylife.
She travelled a lot in missionary trips and collected herbs and stones and
she made own medicines, that's because her convent locked so many pilgrims.

eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long
to return.
