"With its beautiful illustrations, this guide is one you will turn to repeatedly. From the beginner just wanting to get away from pills and OTC remedies to the experienced herbalist (and gardener!), this book offers value for all of us. The herbal profiles give growing and usage information, and each contains a tip from someone sharing personal experience. But the fascination and value come in the formulas and remedies—for physical ailments, emotional and mental disease, and skincare. I knew a lot about the properties of many of the herbs profiled but had no idea how to incorporate them into my life. The simple, easy-to-follow directions make herbal healing approachable to anyone." —Marge Clark, "Vintage Aromatherapist", founder and president of Nature's Gift Aromatherapy
