Description

Ever wondered about the benefits of dandelion, chickweed, and elder? Healing Herbs is an essential reference for the beginning herbalist, featuring 20 common herbs, many of which are considered weeds, that can often be found in hedgerows, meadows, and wild places.

Along with medicinal information, this book includes traditional folklore and fortifying recipes for each edible or medicinal plant, and plenty of easy-to-follow instructions to help fill a backyard herbalist's medicine chest with remedies to keep the whole family happy and healthy.

Healing Herbs is conveniently organized by plant, making it easier for the home herbalist to find, identify, and use healing plants from the backyard. Herbalist Tina Sams identifies the 20 most common and healthful herbs and over 100 natural remedies that are easy, inexpensive, and effective. This illustrated guide is fundamental for any nature-lover's library.

The author

Tina Sams is the editor of The Essential Herbal magazine. After many years of running wholesale and retail herb businesses, she decided to pull together some of those resources and friends made during those careers into an herb magazine. Wildcrafting herbs and wild edibles are of vast interest, as well as soaping, medicinal and culinary uses of herbs, and various herb crafts. Most recently, a still for creating hydrosols and essential oils was added to the crafting equipment, along with lots of land to grow things. Based in Lancaster County, PA, she lives and works with daughter Molly.
