Would you like to be able to use herbs like elder, dandelion, and stinging nettles for food and medicine? Would you like to choose herbs like garlic and ginger at the grocery store and make them into effective medicinal foods for your family? I picked out 20 of the most easily available and incorporated herbs to get you started!
Along with medicinal information, this book includes traditional folklore and fortifying recipes for each edible or medicinal plant, and plenty of easy-to-follow instructions to help fill a backyard herbalist's medicine chest with remedies to keep the whole family happy and healthy.
Healing Herbs is conveniently organized by plant, making it easier for the home herbalist to find, identify, and use healing plants from the backyard. I chose some of the plants that are most important to me to write about, and with the help of friends offer over 100 natural foods and remedies that are easy, inexpensive, and effective.
