Practical and profound... 14 Sept. 2001
By Erin Manasjan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Living in the Los Angeles area, I've been a long-time customer of the Elixir store in West Hollywood. There is no place like it, with licensed herbalists helping customers like me to better understand the power of herbs. I never get sick anymore and I've consumed a thousand tonic beverages at the tonic bar at Elixir. For me, this book is a fabulous window into the world of practical herbalism. I've already tried some of the make-at-home recipes and they're every bit as delicious and healthful as the ones available at the Elixir store. It's clear that the authors didn't hold back on wonderful knowledge that stands behind the success of their store. My family and I are big tonic drinkers now and I'll eventually try every recipe, from soup and spritzer. Great book!!!

BEWARE! 4 Dec. 2009
By Debbie Carlson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was a fan of Elixir until this summer, when they stopped filling their orders. A few months ago customer service stopped answering e-mails (they had not filled a $200 order for three months) and then their phone was disconnected. Their website is still up taking orders...but be warned! DON'T ORDER anything because chances are you'll never get it. It's too bad, because the tonics were great and the recipes are fun...yes, I have their book...but a company with shoddy business practices shouldn't be getting good reviews.

Elixirs and more! 17 Oct. 2011
By Jonathan Warner - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have had my eye on this book for a long time. Ever since I visited the now closed store, I knew it was something that I wanted to be a part of and this book (and seller) helped me greatly! This book is filled with not just amazing recipes, but fascinating stories, timelines, and facts that make the experience a complete one. This is truly a great buy!
Gorgeous book! 7 Dec. 2012

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Full of healthy, invigorating, energsing, soothng and delicious drinks and other recipes for mind, body & spiirt. Old style and homely using ancient wisdom and easy to follow recipes, this book is excellent for those looking to get back to health and stay healthy. Hard to find, but well worth it. Well presented, reseacched and great fun to make these teas and to keep brewing them as a daily, sacred ritual, something special each day. Loved the book so much I got one for a friend!
Wish it had the Ganbei syrup recipes... 26 Oct. 2014
By Katherine Campbell - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great overall, but considering that Elixir went out of business and you can no longer purchase their Gan Bei syrups, I was really hoping they would have more of the recipes for their signature elixirs in this book--specifically the Virtual Buddha. I'm incredibly disappointed that I have no way of recovering these recipes.
