'Grow Your Own Drugs' was written with the help of Medical Herbalists practicing at the Archway Clinic of Herbal Medicine, and it is a fun and practical guide on how to make simple herbal recipes at home.
For too long, most of us have handed over responsibility for own health and care of our bodies to the 'experts', and to a certain extent we have disempowered ourselves. We have lost the art of creating simple remedies such as creams, lotions and lozenges for ourselves, family and friends from flowers, fruit, vegetables, herbs, trees, roots and bulbs that can be grown in our back gardens, allotments or window boxes. Instead, we head straight for the local chemist.
By preparing and using herbal medical remedies at home, people can discover how effective they can be, and will be more prepared to consult a medical herbalist for more complex problems.
