Herbs and Medicinal Plants: The Academy of Natural Sciences Knowledge Cards™

 
9780764915963: Herbs and Medicinal Plants: The Academy of Natural Sciences Knowledge Cards™

Before the science of pharmacology was confined to the laboratory, all medicines were remedies made from plant materials. Healers---from the Neolithic shamans to the eminent physicians of the Enlightenment---made their own poultices, tinctures, and salves from plants that grew in their gardens or in the wild. Few abilities were more important to a doctor than a precise identification of the correct flora.

The 48 beautiful nineteenth-century botanical illustrations in this deck - accompanied by text describing the appearances and uses of the plant - introduce readers to a range of natural remedies, from golden seal to St. John's wort.

Disclaimer: These cards are not a guide to herbal use; the information and illustrations found here are for artistic and historical purposes only. Contact your physician for advice and information about the proper and safe use of herbs. Pomegranate and The Academy of Natural Sciences assume no responsibility or liability for harms associated with any herbal use.

Size: 3 1/4 x 4 inches.
