Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Never is the thought of a steaming cup of herbal tea more appealing than on the gray and chilly days of late winter. Even better is the thought that the contents of that cup might just help you fend off that cold you've been fighting or reduce the stress you feel at the end of a long day. In Wise Concoctions, herbalist Bonnie Trust Dahan mines centuries of kitchen wisdom to offer recipes for teas, tonics, tisanes, broths, bouillons, and elixirs of all kinds, made with herbs and spices, roots, juice, fruit, and other natural ingredients. Organized into sections on ailments like cold and flu; headaches and hangovers; indigestion and stomach cramps; and stress and fatigue, these recipes are both tasty and comforting. From an Elderflower Spritzer designed to treat upper respiratory symptoms to an anti-tension Basil and Lemon Balm Tisane; from a fruity Phases of the Moon Smoothie that fights menstrual cramps to Herbal Ginger "Beer" that will soothe indigestion, these remedies draw both on herbal lore and on culinary wisdom. Dahan also includes sections with recipes for rejuvenation, cleansing, energy boosting, and increasing resistance, with concoctions like a spring cleaning tonic made from herbs and citrus juice; Rose Hips Lemonade for a super dose of vitamin C, and even a sexual vigor tonic made with Chinese licorice root. Next time you feel the sniffles coming on or just feel in need of a little boost, try raiding your pantry and brewing up one of the comforting remedies in Wise Concoctions.
