Review

"Modern pharmaceutical medicine is a fairly new development, while herbal remedies date to the beginning of time. Herbal Healing for Children tells you exactly how to use traditional herbal medicine to keep your children well safely.
Christiane Northrup, MD, ob/gyn physician, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause.

When I received a copy of Herbal Healing for Children to review, I couldn't wait to start reading it.  I was not disappointed.
The book is packed with information on everything from how to use herbs to cure common childhood illnesses to how to make your own herbal remedies to fun herbal garden designs.

Mountain Rose Herbs Blog
If you've been thinking about how to incorporate herbal medicine into your children's lives and are a bit nervous about it, or if you'd simply like more ideas to add to your repertoire of herbal remedies for your little ones, you'll find this book to be a vital resource.

"Demetria Clark gifts us with an enjoyable, thorough parenting guide for anyone who wants to empower themselves and their children. 'Herbal medicine is people's medicine' is a constant theme in this book- and we all benefit."
Susun S. Weed, author of Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year

From the Author

This book was written for parents, grandparents and parents to be. I wanted to write an entertaining herbal that empowered and educated parents on how to best find herbals for common childhood illnesses.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the book and use it for years to come.

There is some useful information in this book. However, I am put off by the author recommending microwave use for herbs and herbal medicine throughout the book. I would never microwave herbs. This lead me to question the author. The information is not organized in a way that is very easy to navigate either. Overall I'm pretty disappointed with the book and will search for a better source for the information I am seeking.

I am a newbie to herbalism. I have a 4-year old daughter and also aspire to heal some of my own ills (including some addressed in this book, ie nausea/seasickness) via herbs. I keep reading this book again and again to glean some new tidbit from the wealth of information. I hope someday this will all be old hat to me, and I will know all the herbs in this guide. Until then, I will keep referencing it as I plan which herbs to buy, where to buy them, and learn more about the world of herbalism.

As a midwife and herbalist, I found Demetria's book to be a very useful guide to herbal remedies for parents to use for their children. Lots of recipes, personal experience, succinct explanations (important for busy parents!) and instructions on how to make your own medicines make this book enjoyable and easy to use. Her experience and respect for the plants shines through.

Demetria Clark has done a great job in writing a herbal book for children. The book provides useful recipes that ad easy to make, and explains the different and common herbs used for children. What I like is that she mentions all precautions that need to be taken when administering herbs to children, and what herbs to avoid or to use with care. Recommended for every family that wants a safe and effective healing for the children.

This book is wonderful. It tells you what is used to cure what. The 1st Chapter: An Introduction to Herbalism, 2nd Chapter: The Herbal Chest: Commonly Used Herbs, 3rd Chapter: Remedies for Common Childhood Illnesses, 4th Chapter: Buying, Gathering, and Preparing Herbs, 5th Chapter: Making Your Own Herbal Remedies (Shows which essential oils that always need to be diluted, which essential oils to avoid, which essential oils are known irritants, which essential oils that make you avoid sunshine if using, etc.), 6th Chapter: Easy Recipes for Homemade Remedies, A Section: Three Fun Herb Gardens, and B Section: Herbs as Nutritional Supplements. This book is power-packed with good information. The Foreword is interesting too. I would highly recommend this book to parents with children who are looking to go down a more natural healing path. Of course, I am not a doctor. This book makes excellent reference material, but you should always consult with a qualified Herbalist before trying to use essential oils, etc.

Although there are some basic methods included inside that I wouldn't use (drying herbs in the microwave, for example), overall this book is a must-have if you have children in the house or in your life. I will be purchasing more copies, make some of the very simple and amazing remedies within and giving them as part of gift baskets at all the future baby showers I attend! I'll also be doing the same as Christmas gifts for my grown children with children. It really is such a fantastic guide and ANYONE can make these home remedies to keep in the pantry for your own family. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! Can't say enough! Thank you Demetria Clark!

The book is very detailed and useful not just for children but even for adults. I have a four year old son and I often wonder if I could use natural or herbal remedies instead of running to the doctors for common childhood illness like ear infection, flu, cold and fever.

Tips like using garlic for mild ear infection are just the kind of simple remedies that I can use from my kitchen.

The challenge I see with a book like this is that not all herbs or ingredients are easily available, at least not when I have a brawling child to attend to. Sometimes the herbal remedies may take longer to heal and also be more expensive than simple over the counter medication.

Bottomline, this is an easy to read, quick reference book.

As a mother of four, a Certified Health Coach and a Director/Owner of two childcare centers....I highly recommend this book. The author, Demetria talks about herbal styles before she jumps into the actual herbs. It's wonderfully organized and not a lengthy read. It's easy to read and she has great herbal remedies. This books title says "children" but this book is good for young adults, middle aged adults everyone. She even has a great remedy for facial toner, mental problems, flu, everything! Great for beginners. Once you become versed in herbal medicines you will learn to use one herb rather than combinations. One more thing I really like about this book is that Demetria touched a bit on drug interactions with herbs. You won't be disappointed.
