The Herb Book This is an amazing book that I am glad to add to my collection. I have always been interested in botany, gardening and the different uses of plants and herbs and this book is full of over 2,000. It begins with lists of herbs that can be used for different situations (i.e. upset stomach, trouble sleeping), then continues on to specifics on individual herbs, including recipes/preparations for the use of each. There are some beautifully done hand-drawn pictures included throughout as well. A very interesting and helpful book that will be of quite a bit of use throughout the rest of my life.   Note: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Given To Me For An Honest Review John Lust's book The Herb Book: The Most Complete Catalog of Herbs Ever Published is a very good one to add  to your book collection.  It is a great reference book.  You can look up herbs by their common name, their scientific  name and what ailments you want to treat.  I also helps you to identify herbs.  This book also tells you how to use  herbs but it does not tell you how to grow them.  I recommend this book.  I look forward to more from John Lust.

Sneaks into a Twoleg Monster and sniffed. Sh landed at a small mound and dug deep. Finally she wa there. She landed in a small crystal pool and swam to shore. She walke through a tunnel and stumble across catmint and wild garlic. She rolled in the garlic because of a infected cut and sh nipped of some catmint happily humming Don't Stop by 5SOS.

With a section for plants used for different conditions 'I call this the Rx section' located next to a listing of terms, this book is very easy to use. You can quickly locate an illness or condition and find the appropriate herb to treat it. This is one of the first books that I go to when I want to make up a concoction. I would recommend this book to anyone just starting to learn about herbs - OR - if you already have an extensive library. . The ONLY THING that would MAKE IT BETTER is if it had pictures instead of line drawings.
