Description

“A real gem…a perfect beginners’ book no matter your age.”
—Rosemary Gladstar, herbalist and author

In Herbal Adventures, you’ll pull on your boots and discover the magical plants that are growing just beyond your door. Explore nearby parks, fields, and forests, then make all sorts of tasty and useful things for your family and friends! Start with a delicious homemade soda, flower petal pancakes, or a soothing balm for cuts and scrapes. Sip herbal tea that's fit for the fairies, craft syrup to quiet your cough, and assemble supplies for your own rough-and-tumble herbal first aid kit. You can also skip the foraging and dive into making the recipes with purchased, dried herbs.

Herbal Adventures includes recipes and instructions for making:
  • Elderberry syrup
  • Herbal chai
  • Dandelion honey
  • Herbal first aid balm
  • Chickweed pesto
  • Herbal cough syrup
  • Pine needle tea
  • Sore throat soother
  • Splinter and sting salve
  • Plus dozens more herbal teas, snacks, oils, and balms! 
Pack up your own foraging kit, and get crafty making seed bombs, flower crowns, and your own homemade plant press. What are you waiting for? All this and more awaits you on your next herbal adventure!
