Excellent resource! 18 Sep 2009
By Kathleen Sanderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book at the library, and liked it so much that I'll be buying my own copy shortly. I have several books on medicinal herbs. This is the best one I've seen for telling you exactly how to prepare and use the herbal remedies in the book. She doesn't cover everything, but it's a very good beginning, and her directions on preparation and use will apply to other herbs that are mentioned in other books.

Something Everyone Needs! 6 July 2009
By R. Rushing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great little book with most of the common plants locally available detailed. It has a description, uses listing and recipes for each plant. Also included are common contra-indications. A very handy resource to have around when the flu bug come buzzing by!

My backyard pharmacy 5 Nov 2011
By Merilyn Welch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a book junkie. Yes, I admit it. But I have gotten more picky, which is why I hesitated for at least a week before ordering this book. And yes, I'm glad I gave in to the urge. I have read it through once and am destined to read it bit by bit many more times. There is enough science to satisfy the nurse in me, but also a strong connection to the more esoteric aspect of being an herbalist. My formal herbal study has been in the Celtic tradition so Julie Bruton-Seal's selection of plants is ideal for me. A large number of her favorite plants are growing near me. She has given me a different view of many different plant properties to consider. My back yard is my major pharmacy, and this lovely resource will broaden its scope and capability. The Celts had a strong thread of practicality that included using what was close at hand. I am following my roots and appreciate additional guidance in the journey.

Good Reference 13 Jan 2012
By Leo58 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book covers a very very short list of medicinal herbs that are mostly common in Great Britain. Presentation of information, print quality and photographs are very good, unlike some books these days that appear to run off a cheap copier. I like the overview of herbal applications. References are made to modern herbalists comments on various uses of herbs. I would like to see a volume 2.
