I first borrowed a copy of "1001 Natural Remedies" from a friend, then realized it would be a good reference to have on hand. I'm getting good value for the price, as the recipes are concise and well-categorized.

Eventually, you realize that the same 7 ingredients seem to make up the majority of these recipes. For the most part, one trip to the natural foods store will have you ready to concoct lip balm, stress-relieving bath salts and itchy scalp.

It would be nice to have some specific product recommendations, as opposed to "use an unscented, natural shampoo". On the other hand, the author helpfully alerts you to recipes that will be messy.

The photos are very nice, and made me check out things I might have ignored otherwise.

I highly recommend this book. It is very comprehensive and easy to read. Every health or home-care issue I've thought of that I'd like a natural remedy to seems to be addressed in this book. The remedies are all simple to do/create. The layout also is very user-friendly and colorful.

This is a cool book to browse and get a few good ideas. 1001 is a stretch - a lot of the "remedies" are common sense stuff...I think "get enough sleep" is in every chapter and counts as a different remedy. However, I found the directions easy to follow and the ingredients more or less easy to come by. I will definitely use some of the concoctions in this book, and so far I've found that the information is accurate. I wish you could buy it through Amazon Prime in the U.S.

I would imagine this makes a great gift along with some essential oils and dried herbs.

I bought this book after reading some very positive comments and because it was very cheap at the time. It didn't disappoint although some of the advice is quite basic but then.... It caters for beginners, maybe very young people and people like me who are a bit older and know all the basic stuff! There is a quite a good index which is useful if you want to find an ingredient or a condition. This book caters for everything from health problems to beauty products, massage oils, natural tips for house and garden, pet care (less interesting for me as I don't have any pets but which will interest a lot of people) and at the end it has a list with plants names showing the common name and the Latin one. There is so much information in it that I will have to keep referring back to it as it is quite impossible to remember even a fraction of it. Too bad some of the ingredients can be quite expensive as natural products often are anyway!

There are a few things I think are not considered correct anymore though but those are only small details like ingesting fibers in order to relieve constipation. Many doctors think now that too much fiber can actually irritate the intestine and therefore cause more constipation. Eating soy is also something not all the experts advise and it does seems that one needs to be careful with the kind of soy one eats, especially if it is not fermented. Milk products to prevent osteoporosis... the jury is not out on that either but it used to be an old belief. The chapter on cholesterol is maybe not accurate either as more and more experts are starting to back off the theory that cholesterol is bad for you and that there is bad and good cholesterol. Anyway, the women who live the longest seem to be the ones with the higher cholesterol levels.
