Natural remedies are increasingly available over the counter not just in health food stores but in pharmacies and supermarkets as well. Despite their growing popularity, ingredients are often unfamiliar and information on their effects can be hard to come by. Fortunately, many remedies can be made safely and cheaply at home, using herbs, wildflowers, and foods. But which of these simple remedies is helpful for which condition? How are they prepared? Are they best in teas, tinctures, or capsules? And how much of them should you take? Essential Guide to Natural Home Remedies steers the reader through these questions and more in four main sections: Using Herbs for Common Ailments; A Directory of Herbs and Healing Plants; Making and Buying Natural Remedies; and Growing and Storing Herbs. Advice on the home medicine chest, healthy houseplants, buying over-the-counter products, and consulting an herbalist complete this excellent essential guide. Penelope Ody, a member of Britain’s National Institute of Medical Herbalists, is the author of 15 books on herbal topics, including Complete Guide to Medicinal Herbs and The Holistic Herbal Directory.
