From Booklist:

Heinerman's encyclopedia of 268 herbs and spices gives each one's medical, nutritional, and cooking uses. Included are such familiar herbs and spices as allspice, anise, basil, chicory, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, ginger, nutmeg, sage, tarragon, and thyme; and highlighted are some not usually thought of as herbs and spices, such as apple tree bark, azalea, blue spruce, cactus, celery, cotton, elephant grass, iris, lilac, lily, morning glory, onion, and yucca. The author cites remedies for such things as increasing the flow of milk in nursing mothers; calming epileptic seizures; and curing shingles, heartburn, sciatica, migraines, nervous tension, and anxiety. Varicose veins can be reduced, memory loss restored, food flavor improved, physical strength increased, and sexual frigidity overcome, Heinerman says. George Cohen
