7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Dianne Foster HALL OF FAME on November 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
If I were to judge THE 2006 HERBAL ALMANAC by the first few entries, I would not give it more than 3 stars. Fortunately, I tend to persevere when reading a book, so I finished reading this book to be rewarded with the discovery of gems in the later chapters.

I particularly liked Stephanie Rose Bird's two pieces "Henna Beauty Treatments" and "African Body Butters". While I've never used henna, apparently, many illustrious women have done so (Cleopatra?), and although henna is generally thought of as a color, it is also a beauty treatment for the hair. I do use the African body butters, and I purchase them from a `Fair Trade' sourcem as Bird suggests - Alaffia.com.

I have had some problems with Eczema all my life but aging and drying skin plus a new sensitivity to sunlight owing to several of the medicines I am taking had made my Eczema symptoms excruciating. I tried everything including several different prescription drugs that I obtained from my dermatologist, but only the African butters have made a difference. For the first time in years, my face, hands and other body parts are clear. My hands were so bad, now matter what I did in the past they cracked and bled all winter and were both painful and unsightly.

I found Ms Bird's essays so interesting and truthful, that I ordered her book from Amazon. I will be sure to review it after I read it. Right now, if you have Eczema, check out the African body butters. They should work for you.

Format: Paperback
So you wanna plant some herbs, maybe a few spices ... but you need to know when is a great time to plant as well as what goes good with what. So you wanna harvest and be able to use these herbs for things other then for food prep. This book tells you the when's, why's, where's, and will keep your interest. You will find yourself referring back to this book and using it as a reference guide. Would of given 5 stars but as a almanac, I didn't find it as useful.. but as a reference book for herbs when, where and why for planting and harvesting ... it doesn't get much better then this.

Enjoyed it thoroughly. I found some information useful for my path and some other information of no use. Would highly recommend.

The book is nice for quick, easy reads, but isn't as informative as a Datebook would be.
