Overview

The Modern Guide to Using Herbs and Essential Oils

You don’t have to identify with the goddess or Earth Mother labels to get going with holistic treatments for your everyday health needs. If you already buy organic produce, make an effort to eat whole foods, and tend to choose Method products over Windex, it only makes sense that that you’d approach your health, wellness, and beauty regimen with a similarly all-natural approach.

Do-It-Yourself Herbal Medicine inspires you to easily and affordably take charge of how you look and feel by sharing simple and fun recipes that use Mason jars, sauce pans, and even your French press in creative ways. In these pages, you’ll find:

  • Down-to-earth info on the exploding popularity of essential oils and why they’re so effective
  • In-depth profiles of 5 must-have herbs to kick off your herbal medicinal projects, as well as 30 additional herbs to get to know and use
  • Over 200 recipes for face and hair care, body and skin care, intimate care, mental health and wellness, common ailments, home cleaning products, and self-care for the day common occurrences, from a hangover to a Netflix binge watch

Improve your health and empower yourself today with these simply, powerful remedies.

In the front the book lists different herbs and what they can be used for. It’s amazing how you can use pretty much every herb for something other than cooking. In the back of the book you can find things from anything from a fever, ear ache to insomnia and everything in between. A friend of mine literally texted me the other day asking about hives and I was able to tell her what to do really quickly with oat flour and peppermint essential oils. I am keeping this book with all my other oils so I can use it really quickly.
