Just as people are increasingly thinking about where their food comes from - and looking for greater control over their food sources - they are also seeking to take greater control of their health care. With health care costs soaring and the frightening list of side effects from pharmaceutical drugs continuing to build, many are looking to herbal medicine for a gentler, less expensive approach to treating everyday ailments. This title covers 33 common plants that can be grown nearly anywhere and used in a variety of ways, including familiar plants such as garlic, echinacea, burdock, nettles and chamomile. It includes step-by-step instructions for drying and preserving herbs and for making the most common herbal preparations, including salves, syrups, tinctures, pills and capsules. It features 20 basic recipes, including some "food as medicine" recipes for healing pestos, vinegars and soups.

Great book for the novice interested in medicinal herb. This book provides clear, concise info about the plant, clean, crisp pictures of the plant, as well as how to use the plant and recipes. It lacks info in regards to how large a plant might get or how to grow it, but that info can be found someplace else.

I checked this book out so often I finally purchased my own copy. An excellent book on beginning Herbal Medicine. Tinctures, teas, salves, and much more are introduced in the beginning with clear instructions on how to do them all.

The section on the 35 best herbs for a medicinal garden is comprehensive and manageable enough for a novice herb grower.
