I've purchased at least six of these books and give them as gifts. Every time we start reading it in a group someone wishes they had a copy of it. It has a lot of home remedies that your grandmother might have used. Mine definitely did. And I still use them now and believe in them. But the fun part is reading all the other folk remedies...I'm not sure anyone I know has tried putting a potato in their pocket to cure anything, but then again you never know... It's a fun read with sensible advice using things you have around your home, and some not-so-sensible ideas that are interesting to read about. You'll enjoy this book.
