If you are interested in herbal home health care, this is the book for you!
When I began researching ways to use herbs medicinally, I was overwhelmed by the vast amount of information out there.
I pored over websites, taking notes and pinning loads of pages.
While I love love love me some Pinterest … I’m also a paper in my hands kind of girl.
So for Christmas a few years ago, after much research, I added a few books on herbal home health care to my list for Santa.
This one is by far my favorite.
It is the the most user-friendly book I’ve found.
The book is organized into three sections:
How-To’s and Tutorials
The Ingredients section covers things like: Apple Cider Vinegar, Comfrey, Garlic, Red Raspberry Leaf, and Cayenne, to name a few. It provides every possible use for the remedy, as well as anecdotes about its usefulness.
I refer often to the Conditions section when a health need arises, like when my eldest stepped on a nail or when I gave myself a second degree burn while removing a jar of hot fudge from the microwave. Ouch!
The truth is, I have a well stocked Apothecary in my basement (which my family affectionately calls my “Potions Room”) but —
I forget what everything is for!
Having a resource I can access quickly to look up treatments is a real God-send.
I’ve used and refer regularly to the last section with Tutorials on how to prepare many herbal remedies. She aptly titles the section, Planning Ahead.
In order to utilize many of these effective herbal remedies, we have to prepare them in advance! Learning how to make herbal salves, tonics, tinctures, and more is not only fun but helps us safely and naturally care for our family.
I get just about all of my herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs. They have fantastic prices, and I’ve always been satisfied with their products.
Check this resource out — and let me know what you think.
