The Herbal Medicine-makers Handbook: a Home Manualby James Green
Synopses & Reviews
THE HERBAL MEDICINE-MAKER'¬?S HANDBOOK is an entertaining compilation of natural home remedies written by one of the great herbalists, James Green, author of the best-selling THE MALE HERBAL. Writing in a delightfully personal and down-home style, Green emphasizes the point that herbal medicine-making is fundamental to every culture on the planet and is accessible to everyone. So, first head into the garden and learn to harvest your own herbs, and then head into your kitchen and whip up a batch of raspberry cough syrup, or perhaps a soothing elixir to erase the daily stresses of modern life.
This guide to the kitchen pharmacy discusses the entire process of preparing herbal medicines at home, from methods of growing, gathering, and drying herbs to different ways of extracting their vital essences and making healing balms, lotions, and more.
