5.0 out of 5 stars my 'wouldn't be without Medicinal Herbal Bible' 15 Feb 2002
By A Customer
of all the medicinal/herbal books I refer to - this is THE one. it covers all aspects of the plants, very helpful to have at hand. I always cross check info against this 'medicinal plants bible' - would never be with out it (I actually have 2 copies - just in case one gets damaged!)
I hope it brings the info and benefits to you, it has to me - enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent dictionary of medicinal plants 9 July 2014
By dgtips
Bought this second hand because I wasn't sure if it would be what I wanted. A very good reference manual for anyone who wants to start making tinctures and macerate oils. Definitely one you should keep in your library of herbal books.
