From the Author:

This book was inspired by the urgent need to recognize the value of mother earth and the plants which she grows- both serving as our foods and also our medicines. We reach for what is familiar! That which we use daily -those very habits which we see our family repeating daily, is what we will likely repeat as adults; routines which we likely will pass along to our next generation. It is essential to remember the importance of clean soil, clean air and the accessibility of healing plants, both as our foods and as our medicines. This book is a small tool for the remembering of the value of our plants and how to apply herbs as medicines for common first aid. Contained inside are herbal medicine recipes for common health issues and non toxic, chemical free body care as well as instructions for preparing your own herbal medicines at home. Are you interested in using herbal medicine at home - then this herbal medicine makers handbook is a useful guide for making herbal teas, herbal salves, massage oils and liniments and other plant based recipes using herbs and spices, and local medicinal plants.
