Book Description

“I think it's the perfect starter book for anyone who is keen to try making their own herbal remedies.”

“The information is clear, concise to the point and easy!!!”

“A ready reference with sound advice right at my fingertips! I am in love!”

“I've been disappointed so many times before by books that claim
herbal remedies, only they never quite tell you everything, always something is missing. This is the missing link, thank you!”

So you know that rosemary and sage are good for dark hair and that fair hair benefits from chamomile, mullein and marigold and you want to make an infusion to add to your shampoo base or to use as a hair rinse.
How much herb do you use?
How much water?
How long do you let it infuse for?

Your favourite women’s magazine told you that a comfrey ointment is great for back pain and sprains, but they didn’t give the recipe of how to make an ointment?

When you already know what herbs you want to use and what herbal product you want to make you need a resource that covers the base formulas. Something that provides you with the ratios and the method of how to make your desired remedy.

That’s where Herbology At Home: Making Herbal remedies comes in. All your base formulas in one place, easy to read and small enough to keep on hand in the kitchen.

Learn the age old methods of making herbal tea, tinctures, ointments, oils and much more. Assemble a herbal first aid kit and prepare natural, chemical free products for health and home.

Herbology at Home: Making Herbal Remedies is a convenient, easy-to-follow guide to preparing natural, chemical free herbal remedies. With a common sense approach to safety and working herbal health into a busy, modern lifestyle this small, value packed Herbology manual is a BIG investment in your family’s natural health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfrey Cottages go to herb book! August 19, 2010
Format:Paperback
Anke says that she considers herbology an amateur interest whereas herbalism is a professional pursuit. I was glad to hear someone else make the same differention as I do! I always consider myself an herbologist, one who studies herbs and no way would I be ready to consider myself an herbalist, if ever! But as Anke says, just because we consider herbology for amateurs does not mean it is any less effective or important! What Anke does say it represents is a continuation of an ancient tradition whereby herb lore is practiced by everyday people in everyday situations! Now that was truly speaking to me folks! Anke's aim is to help guide everyone in taking back our heritage of herbal medicine and passing it on to future generations!

The book is very well written and easy to read with clear instruction for making internal and external remedies. There are sections on infused oils, creams, first aid, children, tinctures, food as medicine and many others. Each is very helpful ready reference when you are making your own remedies at home. What I consider very useful is the fact I finally have a book in my home library that is so easy, and fast to use. Let's just say you have gathered some St. John's Wort and you can't remember right away how to infuse it in oil or fresh tincture it, just grab this book and you can immediately find the sections of the book to help! A ready reference with sound advice right at my fingertips! I am in love!

This is a very good first look at herbal medicine. The ratios in this book are quite precise and I actually use them in my own herbal medicines.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only 29 pages January 14, 2013
By katie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with this book. It took me only 15 minutes to read it because there was only 29 pages of fairly good sized print and some of those pages were only a part page. Other reviews said this was a good beginner's book but the info is so limited and there were so few types of herbs mentioned that you'd be better off skipping this and putting your money into a book with more detailed info.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and very easy to understand May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this and loved it. It was easy to understand and explained how and why a person should use different processes for making different remedies. It was great to read about the different herbs and what they are used for. I would definitely suggest that anyone who is considering making their own herbal remedies purchase this book and keep an eye out for other books she will publish in the future. While it is short, this book contains an abundance of information in one place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good info January 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good info in a short book but not for beginners. I bought it on a super sale and like it. There's a few quibbles I have with recipes, but if you're into this like I am and doing your research as you should, you'll treat them exactly like that, recipes and adjust to what suits you and your family better. Consulting an herbalist is the first place to go of course. ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars "Safe" Herbology January 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has some good things in it, but is not as informational as it could be. I like the few recipes provided for teas and such, but already having some knowledge of herbs there wasn't enough goodness in the book. I did like the balanced approach that the book speaks of when using herbs and how it stresses that herbs should be used in conjunction with modern medicine. Nonetheless, there are several books out there that discuss several uses of herbs for medicinal purposes. This book tended to be on the pre-cautionary side (of modern medicine) and tended not to mention any herbs for specific purposes. Nonetheless, the author seems to love and appreciate herbs as much as I do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Herbal remedies December 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
While the descriptions of the methods for making herbal remedies are good; the author promises specific amounts to use and does so in a general way that still leaves the inexperienced wannabe feeling lost in the vague instruction.

I would return this book if I hadn't already written in it. It's basically like 10 pages long, definitely not worth my $8. I don't like the author either. Read more

Disliked because this was a very simplistic book that basically just went over differences between poultices, infusions, etc. The book told nothing about herbs.

More About the Author

Fortunate to have been raised with herbal traditions, Anke Bialas has expanded her knowledge of herbs and their applications over the years which she now shares with those new to natural health. She encourages use of herbs in unconventional ways, advocating that even a little bit of Nature goes a long way. With a firm believe that herbal health can fit into even the most conventional home, she makes all things herbal appealing to everyone.

Anke is known for her practical, everyday approach to herbal health which led to the creation of the Herbology At Home series of guides to herbs and natural health which provide a convenient reference you can take with you where you need them most.

Herbology.com.au has been running since 2008.
"Herbology is about all things herbal, with the non-alternative reader in mind. It came about when my own passion for herbs and constant questions from friends and strangers collided." There were people who wanted to embrace a more natural approach to health & home but had no intention of changing their entire lifestyle. Many of the sources online assume a certain grassroots knowledge, Herbology doesn't.

All things herbal means literally anything to do with herbs - recipes, gardening, herb info, herbal remedies, craft, pet care, a product review, books, herbalism courses. Herbology provides safe (and sane) base knowledge to whet the appetite and encourage more learning about natural health.
