Overview


Rosemary Gladstar is the mother of modern herbalism. Her wisdom and vision have inspired an entire generation of herbal healers, and her insights into the healing power of plants have helped people everywhere embrace more natural, healthy, and radiant lives.

Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health is the author's practical compendium of herbal know-how. Written with her signature warmth, this must-have reference will help readers of every life stage enjoy radiant well-being, every day. Limit stress and anxiety, get adequate rest, boost immunity, improve mental acuity, and embrace life balance — these are elements of Gladstar's prescription for wellness, longevity, and boundless energy. To help achieve these goals, she offers a number of general-wellness recipes, including 7-Herb Long-Life Soup, Long-Life Elixir, and energy-inspiring Zoom Balls.

The bulk of the book is dedicated to specific herbal remedies for everyone in the family — adults, babies, children, and elders. Good Vision No-Cook Herbal Jam, for example, will help keep aging eyes functional, while Rosemary's Itch Relief Remedy offers a soothing salve for poison ivy. Whether a reader wants to soothe baby's diaper rash, enjoy a better night's sleep, conquer headaches, cure a case of athlete's foot, or boost a sagging spirit, Gladstar's time-tested herbal remedies offer new options for natural healing.

These therapies are enhanced with an A–Z herbal apothecary featuring detailed information about more than 90 herbs, as well as tips for preparing herbal remedies from scratch.

The hardcover edition has become an everyday reference for tens of thousands of families. This paperback release brings Gladstar’s wisdom to even more people interested in embracing physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

    Wonderful resource for people who already know a little about herbs

    I absolutely love this book. The simple, clear recipes she's formulated here are so valuable - and effective! I've tried a few and they have worked for me, friends and family. I was a little confused about the way it was organized within each chapter, but I would still recommend it wholeheartedly.

    If you've never made herbal medicine before or never read any books on how to prepare it, I would recommend James Green's "The Herbal Medicine Maker's Handbook: A Home Manual" for extremely detailed instructions on how to make various preparations. Rosemary definitely writes about how to make various medicines in an Appendix of the book, and it's useful for me since I am familiar with the process, but I wonder that complete beginners would need more info.

    Her use of herbs that are primarily grown in the United States/North America makes building an herbal library simple, cheaper and easier, which I really appreciate. There's nothing super "exotic" that you could not possibly find anywhere in her recipes. A great resource for sure! I keep it with my recipe books on a main counter in my kitchen for regular reference.

    Very Informative

    Many useful recipes, a lot for were not for long time storage, but can still be made quite fast when needed. Not a lot of recipes for things if you are looking to re-sell your products, but super for household helps and medicines. Recipes with exact measurements is what I loved most about this book! A large section for each elderly, women and children. I highly recommend buying this book!
