Overview

Healing Plants is an introduction to the many plants that have proved their worth in the search for natural health and healing. This useful guide is organized in alphabetical order by botanical names within their chapters, with each entry describing the therapeutic properties that make the plants so beneficial to us. The author, who has a wide knowledge of herbalism, has researched this book with a view to providing an interesting introduction to the subject in the hope of stimulating further interest and study. Also featured are remedies, recipes, information about superfoods and interesting facts concerning essential oils.

Nature holds many secrets, many of which are still to be revealed, but we have learned a few of them along the way since ancient times, spurred, no doubt, by the need to discover ways of healing ourselves. Today, the benefits of modern medicine are more than apparent, but it cannot have escaped our notice that there has been a resurgence of interest in herbalism, the natural world, and our place in the scheme of things. Many of the substances present in wild plants are now used in many of our modern medicines, so cures discovered by our ancestors are still, albeit indirectly, being used today. This is an introduction to the many plants that, down the ages, have proved themselves useful to mankind and whose beneficial legacy has stayed with us through to modern times.
