Publisher Comments:

Just outside your doorstep or kitchen window, hidden beneath a tall pine tree or twining through porch latticework, a wild and weedy apothecary waits to be discovered. Herbalist Doreen Shababy shares her deep, abiding love for the earth and its gifts in this collection of herbal wisdom that represents a lifetime of work in the forest, field, and kitchen. This herbalism guidebook is jam-packed with dozens of tasty recipes and natural remedies, including Glorious Garlic and Artichoke Dip, Sunny Oatmeal Crepes, Candied Catnip Leaves, Lavender Lemonade, Roseberry Tea, Garlic Tonic, Parsnip Hair Conditioner, and Dream Charms made with Mugwort. A sampling of the herbal lore, legend, and instruction found within these pages: The difference between sweet-faced flowers and flowers with attitude How to assemble a well-stocked pantry - The importance of gratitude Plant-spirit communication basics - How to use local wild herbs How to make poultices, teas, tinctures, balms, and extracts Those who dare delve into this book may emerge with catnip on their breath, mud on their knees, wild fruit juices on their hands, and a mysterious, satisfied smile--the very image of a wild and weedy woman. Come on --Susun S. Weed, wild woman herbalist

Review:

"Herbalist Shababy's well-considered alphabetic valentine to natural healing is an informative guide to the benefits and applications of everything from apples to 'Zip,' a hearty garlic tonic said to ward off colds and flu. Readers will be caught up by Shababy's enthusiasm while she divulges all sorts of trivia and history: juniper was once burned in hospital rooms to destroy airborne fungi; lavender can aid and stimulate circulation when added to a bath; PMS symptoms can be treated with catnip tea. Readers will also learn how to make their own bath salts and create their own herbal shampoo. Even if readers take a pass on saying a prayer of thanks to plants before harvesting, or fail to see immediate results when using anise in a pillowcase to ward off bad dreams, readers will likely find a use for recipes such as Manicotti Crepes, homemade blackberry brandy, spinach dip, and a simple fruit pie with a coconut cream cheese crust. Generous with her sources and references, Shababy's voluminous guide will help armchair naturalists and horticulturalists get the most out of nature's bounty without risking harm to themselves or the environment."
