This review is from: The Herbal Medicine Maker's Handbook: A Home Manual (Paperback)
This is an extremely useful book for those of us who would love to make our own herbal 'stuff' but don't know how. Green concentrates on a small number of herbs with wide uses, most of which are available (sometimes for wild harvesting) here in the UK, and presents enormous amounts of practical information geared towards lay herbalists who want to experiment with making their own preparations. Use this book for practical, easy to use low-down on how to make creams, salves, lotions, tinctures and many other herbal preparations. Green has a lovely voice and presents his material in an intelligent, entertaining way. Although my herbal library is extensive, I come back to this book again and again when it comes to making herbal preparations.
