2.0 out of 5 stars BIG Book Bummer!!
By Y. Wilson on October 6, 2020
CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL PAGES IN THIS BOOK. BIG PRINTING MISTAKES THROUGHOUT!!! MISSING PAGES AND DUPLICATE PAGES!!!

The book is great however pages 97 thru 128 are missing completely. Pages 65 thru 96 are in 2 sections of book..double print for those pages.....Very disappointing and I wonder if they know that this book is NOT published correctly and how many people have purchased yet haven't actually looked at the pages or noticed this HUGE printing mishap!! Sent back for a refund. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Repeated sections
By allan bakhaus on May 28, 2020
I just opened the book, and began thumbing through it. Either there was a printer’s mistake or an editor’s mistake, because the sections on Ginger garlic, sage, thyme and Turmeric repeat.. Even the page numbers are identical despite the distance between the sections. I’m worried that this means I am missing a couple of sections.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Book for Herbal Medicine Making 💚
By ♡ Hope Pusher ♡ on October 23, 2017
Rosemary Gladstar is a renowned herbalist and teacher who's had more than 40 years of experience working with herbs. She is highly respected by herbalists around the world, and she grew up around nature and herbs. Rosemary knows exactly what she's talking about, and I love reading this book and highlighting pertinent information. It's easy to simply read from front to back, it's filled with bright pictures and glowing compassion, and all the basic knowledge you need to begin making your own herbal medicine.

There are plenty of great recipes for natural salves, lotions, teas, tonics, tinctures, herbal remedies, bath products, poultices, liniments, cough syrrups, herbal pills, and more in this book, followed by easy instructions and thorough explanations. Although this book is perfect for beginners, I believe it's useful to have on hand for those who are more experienced herbalists. It's a handy reference book that covers various important medicinal herbs, followed by original recipes for bodycare products and herbal teas.

Rosemary Gladstar is very honest, passionate, and poignant in her writing, readily admitting to her own mistakes and disorganization. I find her openness and creativity endearing; it adds warmth and humanizes this wonderful book. It feels as if she's talking directly to you, helping you make herbal remedies, right at your side. "Rosemary Gladstar's Medicinal Herbs" is a beautiful, informative book that every student of herbalism should own. And if you want to begin your own herbal garden, this is the perfect place to start. She's got your back. 💖
