Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Many herbal tomes profess to act as one-stop crafting ...Browning carries through on that promise.”—Booklist. “Browning makes and packages the fragrant creations of traditional herbalists such as bath oils, potpourri, and culinary vinegars, oils, and syrups....explains techniques, provides recipes, and offers photos showing the gifts packaged for presentation. This excellent, up-to-date summary of herbal crafts is recommended for public libraries.”—Library Journal.

Synopsis:

Harvest the most glorious gifts right in your own backyard--and show your family and friends you care enough to take the time and make the very best! Gather the most fragrant herbs, the prettiest roses, and the garden's freshest vegetables and use them to whip up cosmetics, perfumes, potpourri, and many more homemade presents. Experiment with the variety of techniques for drying and preserving your bounty, including giving it a "jump start" in the microwave. Press flowers and vegetables for displaying under glass or mounting on cards and labels. Concoct individualized floral waters, as well as botanical bath and beauty products. Prepare delicious herb butters, oils, vinegars, and flavored teas and liqueurs at a fraction of what they cost in stores. Don't worry if you don't have a garden: just take a trip to your local farmer's market and you'll be ready to craft!
