    Very useful

    In the grand scheme of things, there'sa really is nothing to this book. all the herbs are listed in the front along a fair amount of detailed information about each herb as well as nice colorful pictures. Herbal remedies gives you steps to creating teas, decorations, infusions, as well the suggested dosage, for a man, women, or child. This book is a 5 star for sure just on the practical application of each herb and the wide array of common ailments you are able to help either alleviate or cure.
