I looked at this for the better part of the weekend and I absolutely fell in love with the book.  Nowadays, more and more people are going back in time to what they used to do in the old days – things that we take for granted today, how we get them, etc.  This book changes that – by going back to what used to be, we are going back to nature – using what is natural instead of just popping a pill that the doctor gave us.  As I type this, I too want to go back in time and use some of these herbs to try to see if it does really work.

I have to really point this out – PLEASE USE CAUTION !

Some of these herbs can make you quite ill, so please only see your doctor if you are already on medication, pregnant, or a qualified herbalist to make sure that you are doing it correctly.  Some of these herbs can make you really ill if taken improperly.

You probably use herbs on your day-to-day life – herbal teas, shampoos, creams, etc., have started making their way back into being “fashionable” once again.  But, really I think it shouldn’t have gone out of fashion.  We pay for expensive items already.  This is a great way of going natural and saving money.

I think that these books are also a great companion to this one – The Cook’s Herb Garden and Grow Herbs
