An absolute must-have for anyone interested in herbal medicine, gardening and getting creative with plants. As an herbalist, I still reference this book OFTEN. It's full of thoughtful, and often funny anecdotes while offering extremely useful and mindful advice on harvesting, storing, using and applying plants in our day to day lives. Including illustrations by his own daughter. This is on my top 5 herb books forever.
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.
