This book is a comprehensive collection of South African “veld” remedies. Betsie Rood supplies the botanical name, popular names and description of each and every indigenous plant species, as well as its range of uses. This book is a national treasure, not only because it collects centuries’ worth of knowledge, remedies and tips, but also because the various uses to which different local cultures put the same plants are listed in full. There has been a marked revival of interest in herbs and natural remedies. Experts also claim that health and beauty are two industries that will experience phenomenal growth in the next two decades. The first edition of Uit die Veldapteek was such a success that a second edition is much in demand today.
