Making Plant Medicine will satsfy both beginners and advanced do-it-yourselfers in herbal medicine. --Prevention Magazine
An excellent overview of making herbal tinctures, vinegars, glycerites, water-based preparations, syrups, slaves, baths, poultices, etc. Clearly explains the methods for making everything from simple teas to professional quality, mixed solvent tinctures equal to those in health food stores. Includes "A gardener's herbal formulary" covering over 110 herbs, with over 500 formulas, giving medicinal action, dosage, and use. Interesting stories of his own experiences give the book immediacy and bring the processes "off the page" and into practical focus. --JL Hudson, Seedsman

About the Author
Richo Cech is an internationally recognized expert on the cultivation, processing and usage of medicinal plants. His early work in African archeology and ethnobotany coupled with a life-long interest in seed saving eventually materialized in an extensive collection of seeds. This collection became the basis for Horizon Herbs, a company dedicated to the worldwide dissemination of medicinal herb seeds. Richo serves on the executive board of United Plant Savers, an organization dedicated to the conservation of Native American medicinal plants. Richo strongly believes that organic cultivation of medicinal plants provides a necessary alternative to the harvest of precious plant resources from the wilds. Richo is the author of a popular series of pamphlets on the cultivation of medicinal herbs and a new book entitled "Making Plant Medicine."

This book is designed for the student who wants to take plant medicine to its limits. If you want to do weight based dosing, use calculations based to get the required dose, and have consistency in your medicine, then this book is most likely for you. If you want the simplest method to get to make plant medicine this book has a whole chapter that gives you the quick and easy method (no math required). Cech has done a fantastic job of giving the reader both the easy and the complex. You decide which route you want to take (my opinion both have benefits).
Half the book is formulas for specific plants. There really is a lot of information packed into this little book. Yes, there are other herbal medicine books that are designed specifically for the beginner. Yet, I haven't found a book that will allow you to do the fast and simple method while also giving you a book full of future growth in this field. This is a worthy herbal plant medicine book..
