I went to the library a couple of days ago to get the kids some books, and found myself wandering out of the children’s books and into the adult’s section (something I never do!). As I browsed, I came to a section on Herbal Remedies.
After looking through several books, I came across this one called The Complete Medicinal Herbal. I checked it out and have been devouring it. I LOVE it!
This book has everything. I love that it has nice colorful photos of each herb in it’s different forms. It also has a section on how to make teas, tinctures, creams, infused oils, creams and more all from your own homegrown herbs. It even tells how to dry and store them.
I especially love the section on Childhood Ailments. It lists many common childhood problems, names a few herbs that help, and gives the exact dosage amount for your child’s age.
This book has it all. I hated that I have to return it soon, so I just bought a used one from Amazon.com for $8 shipped! Not bad, huh?!
Thought I’d pass this along to those of you interested in Natural Remedies!
