For my birthday last year, I received a book that has fast become one of my favorites:
Rosemary Gladstar's, Medicinal Herbs, A Beginner's Guide.
I love books about herbs that are easy to understand and give me the most important information.
I also enjoy a book that contains recipes and practical projects that allow me to quickly implement what I've learned and actually use herbs in everyday life.
This book has both of those things.
Plus, it's beautiful.
Containing lots of full color images, Medicinal Herbs, A Beginner's Guide, teaches the most pertinent information about 33 useful herbs. It also explains how to harvest the most beneficial parts of each plant and demonstrates how to make teas, tinctures, face creams, tooth powder, tonics, and other healing recipes.
This is now my go to gift for anyone wanting to learn about herbs.
I realize this probably sounds like a commercial! I just wanted to pass along my find.
Have you had a chance to take a look at this book? What's your favorite book about herbs.
