I started working on this book in August 2016, it is now January 2017. It covers a vast amount of information. I wanted to make sure that I covered everything completely, I will now start re- read it again. The book is highlighted, underlined, notes written all over the book. This is more a text book, than a simple herb book. I highly recommend this if you are serious about being am herbalist.
This is one book I will use over and over. Love it.
I personally like this book because I specialize in herbal liquid extracts and infusions, mainly tinctures, glycerites, and oils. This book extensively covers these forms of herbal therapy and application in great detail, not just on the basic components of making a tincture or other form of herbal medicine but it discusses the scientific and biological processes behind them. I especially like that he discusses tincturing by maceration and by percolation and furthermore includes a whole independent section on Solvents as well; as they can be tricky to choose from and formulate when making your own formulas and figuring out each herbs solubility factors and weigh which solvents should be used and in what quantity and ratio. In conclusion this book is another must have for any truly dedicated naturopathic medicinal herbalist and includes more valuable information one could hope for and expect especially in comparison to the books price.
It is written in an approachable manner that will have you contemplating the new information as well as turning the pages like the hottest new novel. You will learn what herbs help with ailments, how to prepare them and why they work.
Buy this book and start on the herbal road to good health.
