The Guide to Remedies: Homeopathy, Essential Oils, Crystals and Home Remediesby Staff of Parragon Publishing
In the days before modern medicine, ailments and injuries were often treated at home, using natural remedies made from natural products. While conventional drugs can be life savers, it is now widely believed that many common complaints can be cured using alternative, traditional treatments. This book offers a comprehensive approach to natural ways of healing that focus on general well-being as well as on good health.
Homeopathy is a "holistic" or "whole" approach that takes into account a person's physical, emotional, and mental state as part of the treatment. Remedies are produced from natural materials including plants, metals, and minerals.
People have always been drawn to the fragrances and essential oils produced by certain aromatic plants. These scents affect our mood, lifting our spirits and helping us to relax. The oils can be inhaled or applied directly to the skin during aromatherapy sessions as a way of nurturing both body and mind.
No longer dismissed as old wives' tales, home remedies can be effective in first aid and as treatments for many general ailments. Made from everyday ingredients, these natural remedies are simple to prepare, safe to use, and established alternatives to conventional medicines.
Crystals have long been considered to have special powers, including healing properties and the ability to balance the energies of body, mind, and spirit. Placing them in your personal space, or wearing them as jewelry, allows you to share the natural, positive energy of their light, color, and beauty.
The Guide to Remedies explores four different branches of complementary remedies, providing an excellent source of front-line treatment, and an introduction to self-healing.

I cant begin to tell you how many times I have referenced this book for friends and family. I have been trying to purchase additional copies for gifts but apparently it is out of print..What a shame.. I love this book...
I was very happy to find this book. It is a condensed version of some very involved books that I already own, and I keep it next to my chair in the living room with my easy reference materials. The Essential Oil and Crystal sections are of particular interest to me, and I learned quite a bit. This happily surprised me, as I have been studying these areas for many years. Yes, go for it!
