About the Author
Top customer reviews
I also appreciate the extensive bibliography and references to scientific studies in support of the claims made. I really love this book!
The book starts with an overview of the different ways of preparing and preserving the herbs, including drying, teas, ointments, tinctures, syrups, vinegars and more. Herbs are listed alphabetically, and each herb’s chapter includes a description and history of the herb, its uses in cooking and medicine, how to grow and harvest it, the best varieties, the latest research on their use for specific conditions, the best ways to prepare each herb, and both medicinal and culinary recipes.
Reading the specific uses of these herbs was a real eye-opener. I was astonished to discover that many herbs I’m already growing have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, can be used as beauty aids, brain boosters, insomnia reducers, adrenal supporters, and the list goes on. Whatever issues you are dealing with, you’ll likely find some pretty powerful support from mother nature in these pages, and the seeds are easily available online. This book is a wonderful gift to yourself and your loved ones. I would recommend it as an essential addition to any cookbook collection.
