The complete book of herbs by Lesley Bremness

Robbie McDowell, August 7, 2012

We recently just started growing our own herbs, for use in the kitchen and in the home, and we wanted something that could help us with our new obsession. This book is a wonderful guide for those who are making a change in their lifestyle and incorporating historically used natural remedies. I would imagine that even for those who aren't beginners, this would be a wonderful resource.

The book includes detailed pictures, uses, and historical information for each herb. There is a great section towards the end of the book that includes recipes for cooking, making beauty products, and household uses. It goes beyond the grown herb's usefulness, and begins the book with garden design and examples of beautiful herb gardens from around the world.

The name is indicative of this book, and if you are looking for a tangible resource with everything at your fingertips, this is the book that you need in your collection.
