Format: Hardcover
This book discusses each herb by what ailment it can help. From aches and pains, insomnia, and yeast infections; this book lists remedies to over 100 problems. Each herb summary is easy to read and lists the type, dosage, other healing effects, how long it takes etc. It even gives you recipes and information on making your own remedies. There is also a neat section on pet herbal remedies. The only thing that concerned me is that there wasn't alot mention of how the herbs might interact with other herbs or prescriptions you maybe taking. Myself taking an anti-depressant, I know that it is not reccommended taking St. John's Wort. All it says is to check with your doctor as you would any drug. Overall it was a good reference book, but as I have said before never get all your information from one book.

This book works well for the herbs that they have in the book. By that I mean that it tells you some general uses, the amount to use, and precautions.
But this book is far from all-inclusive for most herbs or indications.

The service was good. However I was not pleased with the bent cover and how dirty the out side of the book was. The inside was very clean.
