Believe it or not, your backyard holds the secrets of generations of healing wisdom.  From blackberry bushes to dandelion flowers, violets greens to white pine sap – healing plants are everywhere, and The Herbal Home Remedy Book is like a guided walk through the woods and fields with a master herbalist.  You’ll learn how to identify gather, and use 25 healing herbs to make natural remedies in the form of teas, tinctures, salves, wines, vinegars, syrups, and lozenges.

                Natural antibiotic formulas from garlic, nosebleed remedies from peppermint leaf, sunburn relief from violets, and many others are woven among rich herbal folklore including Native American legends and stories.  The Herbal Home Remedy Book is a full course in healing herbalist for you and your family. 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.
