Product Description

Acquire herbal healing wisdom with this guide to gathering, drying, storing, and blending 25 common herbs. Joyce A. Wardwell shows you how to build your own all-natural home medicine cabinet, providing simple recipes for soothing tinctures, salves, tonics, syrups, teas, and lozenges. With gentle, plant-based solutions to ailments ranging from muscle cramps and indigestion to dry skin and sore throats, this comprehensive guide is full of natural remedies that will keep your whole family healthy. 

Amazon.com Review

Endorsed by Rosemary Gladstar, renowned herbalist and author of Herbal Healing for Women, this book of "homespun alchemy" bursts with easy recipes for medicinal wines, herbal oils, salves, tonics, syrups, throat drops--you name it. From the guidelines for gathering medicinal plants to instructions for tincture preparation, Joyce Wardwell conveys her love and respect for herbs. She comes from a long line of herbalists: her great-great-grandmother Jane learned the herbal craft from the Ojibway in Minnesota; Jane''s mother was condemned for witchcraft and her husband was hung for it during the Salem, Massachusetts, Witch Trials. But there''s nothing to fear from the Remedy Book: recipes are made primarily from the 25 most common herbs, and instructions are so clear they''re nearly foolproof. The flu, insomnia, colic, menopause, and sore muscles are all covered. Any household with children will find the "herbal home medicine chest" invaluable, with treatments for everyday ailments such as colds and coughs, burns, bug bites, bruises, and strains. The publisher, Storey Publications, is known for its practicality and environmental awareness, and the book is printed on lovely cream-colored recycled paper.

From Booklist

The virtues of this guide to herbal medicine lie in its utter simplicity, clarity of presentation, and grounding in the earth. Practicing herbalist Wardwell aims to provide a basic manual for the beginner. In part 1 she chooses and elaborates on 25 common, safe, easy-to-grow herbs, rather than confusing the reader with comprehensiveness. Instructional chapters cover how to recognize, gather, and store plants and how to select quality ingredients and equipment. Part 2 gives detailed steps in the preparation of various remedies: tinctures, herbal oils and salves, medicinal wines and vinegars, and syrups and lozenges. Part 3 lists the components of a basic herbal medicine chest, gives guidelines for blending herbs, and provides an A Z list of symptoms (e.g., headache, chapped skin) and their herbal treatment. The book''s promised index will be needed to locate information in this symptom list because of the often poorly chosen entry words. Sprinkled throughout the book are Native American teaching stories that illustrate Wardwell''s theme of humans'' ties to plants and the earth. Penny Spokes

I first purchased this book through a catalog when I was a teenager. I referred to it so many times for my teas an cother concoctions that I wore the poor thing to death. After loaning it to a friend who misplaced it, I found it again on Amazon years later (this week). In this book are the absolute basic necessities for amy beginning herbalist; so simply explained, in fact, that an overzealous young herbalist was able to become a nurturing mother who cures all her children''s woes using herbs. I am so grateful to have this book back in my life, and I look forward to telling the short stories to my children whilst we make the incredible variety of recipes the book contains. When I wear out this copy as I once did before, I will buy another, and hope that my children will refer to it in their coming years as I did.

This book gives all sorts of different recipes for things ranging from flue prevention to worms, and parasite prevention, natural remedies for removing warts, and for menstruation. There is even remedies for those who want to quit smoking and lose weight! It gives the basics for making tinctures, oils, wines, vinegars, salves, syrups, lozenges, and a few others. The book provides some blends to experiment with and how to make your own blends! I''d recommend this book for anyone who wants to start herbal medicine, and even those who have been practicing it for years, like me. Anyone can learn a thing or two with this book. Also as a bonus, there are some stories at the beginning of every chapter that would be wonderful to tell to friends and family around a campfire.

When getting into herbalism, i wish i would have bought this book first! I started out buying complicated books for begginers that jumped streight into energetics and tissue states that frustrated me badly. Not to mention not 1 of the more challenging books actually told me how to make a tincture, or how much tea to use for medicinal purposes. Buy this book! Its imformative, fun, and a great way to see if Herbal medicine is a good hobby/way of life for yourself!

It is a very good thing that the author suggests only non toxic plants as a start. She is an insightful and wise teacher. I am looking forward to making the medicinal wines. The stories are also a nice touch. I will be purchasing her other books.

Not a super detailed book, but depending on your usage of it I suppose it doesn''t really need to be that detailed. It''s a good reference to keep in the medicine cabinet or even in the kitchen drawer and I''ve thumbed through it to refresh my memory on quite a few things over the past two years. Overall I''d say it is useful, but I wouldn''t depend on it as your only reference herbal guide.
