Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considered the mother of modern herbalism in North America, Rosemary Gladstar has inspired an entire generation of herbalists and has been a driving force in herbal education. Now everyone can share in her wisdom and enthusiasm with this practical yet evocative compendium. It offers easy-to-understand information for achieving optimal health, as well as tried-and-true advice for feeling positive and energetic - naturally. Gladstar offers intensely personal and uplifting insights into her own life and the lives of her mentors and friends, giving readers a cross-generational guide to living life with true and boundless enthusiasm. Her herbal recipes address everyday ailments, ease stress and anxiety, and promote radiant beauty within and without while nurturing longevity and well-being throughout the life cycle. An herbal apothecary at the end of the book provides an A-to-Z guide to herbs and their healing uses, along with safety precautions, dosage information, and guidelines for when to seek traditional medical help.

About the Author

A devoted advocate and educator of herbs, Rosemary Gladstar opened her own herb store in 1972--appropriately calling it "Rosemary's Garden"--and has been sharing her love for herbs ever since. Known as an inspiration and mentor to many herbalists, Gladstar has edited the guides in the Natural Health Handbooks Series: Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Remedies for Men's Health, Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Remedies for Children's Health, Rosemary Gladstar's Herbs for Reducing Stress and Anxiety, Rosemary Gladstar's Herbs for Natural Beauty, Rosemary Gladstar's Herbs for Longevity and Well-Being, and Rosemary Gladstar's Herbs for the Home Medicine Chest. She has also written the book, Herbal Healing for Women. Rosemary has reached many milestones in her life, for she's the founder and president of United Plant Savers, co-founder and director of Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat Center and Native Plant Preserve, director of the International Herb Symposium, co-director of the New England Women's Herbal Conference, and founder and former director of The California School of Herbal Studies. She has been an herbal education teacher at many colleges, universities, medical centers and conferences. Gladstar lives in northern Vermont and has twin daughters.
