I believe everyone has some sort of anxiety, stress, depression, or panic attacks, and these topics are covered with a wealth of information and terrific homemade herbal recipes. The natural herbs that are included in a few of the recipes have parsley; flowers of essence include aspen, rock rose, and olive.
Ms. Gladstar also includes a list of natural herbs along with a very descriptive analysis, it uses, benefits, and preparation tips. She discusses nerve tonics and sedatives. There is also a section on ‘Which Ginseng Should I Use? When preparing your remedy from natural herbs, there is a dosage chart for reference.
In addition, under the heading ‘Massage and Body Therapies’, gives great information on relaxation for the body and mind.
Rosemary Gladstar brings much insight to the nervous system in our bodies, which often is overlooked. I highly recommend to everyone seeking a possible natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Do not use these remedies before consulting with your personal physician.
I received this book free from Storey Publishing through the Net Galley Reviewer Program for this unbiased review.
I have a small library of books on a variety of topics, including herbs. I don't have one by this author, and expect some will look at the size of the book and dismiss it. Don't. It's small but concise - if you took notes during a class or while reading a bigger book, it'd be this book. How to make tinctures and other things is covered as well as a basic what herbs are useful for what issue (and when not to use it). Not taking it all the time was a good point.
There's a couple points I thought were a little odd for me - the lunar tea, for example, is a bit beyond my belief system although sun tea is a regular. So if it's a little different it hurts...what? Nothing!
In full disclosure I viewed a reading copy from NetGalley, but this is worth adding to the quick and grab referral pile - easy to find references because it's not a big book. Worth it, worth the money. Well done.
After that book I needed to learn more! I particularly have issues with stress and anxiety and this book is perfect to tell me what I should do to help things, naturally. Please keep in mind this book is from the "Basics" line of books so it isn't very thick, and honestly it shouldn't need to be. Its a pretty specific book, but has a TON of information packed into the pages!
Ms. Gladstar has other books on herbal subjects, and they too are well-written and informative. She's a great author to collect.
