Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A great addition to the herbal identification books, with full-color photos of plants, along with usage, dosage, and recipes. One downside: the font is on the small side.

Well worth the buy. This book contains clear instructions for making your own home remedies. I have read several other herbal medicine books & this is by far the best. Many colorful pictures and often times includes a short history of each herb.
