A wonderful book for living life in a natural way,
By A Customer
This review is from: Common Herbs for Natural Health (Herbals of Our Foremothers) (Paperback)
I ordered this wonderful book last year because I was interested in herbal medicine. Since that time, I have used this book countless times for common ailments like colds, flu, bug bites, scrapes, bruises, etc. In almost every case, the recommendations given by Ms. Levy work as well or better than expensive, over the counter medications & salves. Some of the herbal recommendations, including using fresh basil on insect bites have results which are almost miraculous. I highly recommend this book. It's very interesting reading as well, Ms. Bairacli Levy infuses it with her life experiences garnered by learned about herbal medicine from indigenous people around the world. I cannot say enough about this book...it is one of the best and most helpful books I've ever bought.
