Many families are finding the use of herbal medicines to be a safer, simpler, more natural way to care for their children than treating with conventional medications. Children often improve after just a few doses of herbal remedies-even when standard medicines have been ineffective-and often recover with fewer side effects.

Herbal Healing for Children is an easy-to-follow, practical guide to dealing with common childhood health issues. In this comprehensive herbal materia medica, you'll discover

why medicinal herbs are safe and effective, and which conditions they treat;

how to gather, preserve, and store fresh herbs;

time-tested techniques for making decoctions, herbal teas, infusions, and salves;

a treasury of practical recipes for reliable, age-appropriate remedies.

This new book has everything I could want in a remedy for children book. I love it and will use it often. Finally a book written by a mother I can understand. She breastfeed, co slept, and is a cool lady, but you never feel preached to or that you are not the expert of your kid. It is a well researched read.

I know the title Herbal Healing for Children says just for children, well it is not. It has so much more to offer any aged person and the instructions for multiple ages too. Great reference book and a must have for all parents.

This book was very beneficial and useful. It has already been a great help around the house. I will be using it a lot I am sure. I liked how the book gave instructions on how to make all the "products" like salves, tinctures, etc..
