Practical, thorough and gorgeous to look at,
This review is from: Herbal Remedies (Eyewitness Companions) (Paperback)I love this book. It's not just a really useful, clear and practical guide to herbal medicine by one of Britain's most respected herbal practitioners. (Andrew used to be president of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists).
It's also a stunning celebration of the beauty of these plants. There must be 40 double-page photographs, each one breathtaking... Because herbs like Calendula, Dandelionand artichoke aren't just brown tinctures with medical benefits: they're also stunning plants, many of which you can grow at home or gather in the wild.
This book inspires you to be more in touch with the plants around you and what they can do for you - rather than depending on synthetic pharmaceuticals.
