    This book is an amazing asset to any household - from beginners to experienced herbalists. As a mother, I take very seriously my responsibilty to tend to the health and wellness of my family. I got this book when I was just beginning to learn about herbs and natural health. At first, all of the recipes look a little daunting. But if you just slow down and pick a few to try based on your individual needs, you will see how easy they are to use/make and will gain confidence to try others.

As a mother, I take very seriously my responsibilty to tend to the health and wellness of my family. I got this book when I was just beginning to learn about herbs and natural health. At first, all of the recipes look a little daunting. But if you just slow down and pick a few to try based on your individual needs, you will see how easy they are to use/make and will gain confidence to try others. With the vast availability of quality organic herbs on the internet these days, your ingredients can be delivered to your door if they cannot be found locally. My favorite recipe in the book is the elderberry syrup. I had previously paid $11.49 per 8oz bottle from a trusted supplement company. Now, I make 32oz of the syrup for $5.48. She includes several recipes suitable for children and has dosage instructions making administering them foolproof. They really work too! I LOVE this book and will pass it on to my daughter when she has a family of her own.

    This is the herbal that I recommend to folks just starting to explore medicine-making and home remedies. Frankly, it took me a couple of years to truly appreciate just how easy-to-use yet informative Rosemary Gladstar's book is. The instructions on how to make tinctures, salves, and teas are simple; the formulas are fun and elegant; and the materia medica is to-the-point. My only bone to pick is that Gladstar has a "women's" section -- dominated by aids to alleviate menstrual pain, address cancer This is the herbal that I recommend to folks just starting to explore medicine-making and home remedies.

My only bone to pick is that Gladstar has a "women's" section -- dominated by aids to alleviate menstrual pain, address cancer anxiety, etc. -- and a "men's" section, where one can find the love potions. Alas, few of us are free from sexism/male supremacy. Read with a few grains of salt, and perhaps you'll love it as much as I do!

    Just READING this book made me feel good, and gave me wonderful dreams. I'm so inspired to create a million teas and lotions and potions. In fact, I stocked up on supplies at Rosemary's Garden over the weekend to create full-on facials with my friends next week. I feel so lucky to live near the herb store she started here in Sonoma County. Looking forward to exploring all of her recipes.

It is so incredibly comprehensive on herbs, herbal recipes, herb therapies, and different natural treatments for men, women, children, and the elderly and it also includes sections specifically about stress, everyday ailments and natural beauty regimens. After reading it cover to cover I was left feeling so inspired in the way Rosemary Gladstar uses and values nature in her daily life. I have made the shampoo and face lotion/cream recipes. The facial cream I have been using for about 7 or 8 months now and it is the only thing that is not irritating and keeps my skin moisturized without reapplication. I'm now almost out of it so I need to make another batch soon. It is a bit time consuming and requires specific ingredients and tinkering in the kitchen but it's definitely worth it for clean high quality product. I have been off of shampoo and conditioner for 4 months now. It was not easy getting used to the different feeling of my hair without shampoo or conditioner unnaturally stripping it of it's oil every day. My hair is heavier and shinier now and doesn't get frizzy or fly-aways anymore. When I do feel it needs a deep scrub I just use the herbal shampoo I made from the recipe in the book. The appendix is very helpful because it has an A-Z section about all the different plants, which parts of them to use, what they are used for, and in some cases how long humans have been using the herb. For instance Blue Cohosh tea had been used for centuries by Native Americans to help with an easy child birth. Fennel has been traced back to early Greek times, when the physicians used it for nursing mothers. Fo-ti has been used for hundreds of years in China for vitality. Ginseng has been traced back to 196 A.D. and was used as a cure all! The list goes on and I just loved learning about the various different plants and their uses. We have our own little medicinal back yard garden here, with rosemary, sage, lavender, chamomile, Feverfew, mullien, borage, calendula and motherwort. But after learning about all these other great herbal plants, we want to expand the herbal section of our garden to include so much more. I happen to be reading Harry Potter while reading this book and I couldn't help feeling like her various tinctures, decoctions, infusions, syrups, and salves were like making potions at Hogwarts :) So I suppose this book isn't for everyone. If you don't care about living "naturally" or organic life practices this probably is not the book for you. If you have a fascination with living simply, organically, naturally, or just trying to get off the dependence of commercial grade mass market consumer personal care items, then this is the book for you!

    This book is packed with information about using herbs and lifestyle changes and nutrition to maintain good health and mental balance. Rosemary Gladstar definitely approaches the issue of health from a holistic standpoint that compounds all facets of one's way of living and interacting in order to properly address influencing factors and circumstances. Many of her recipes are based on using tonics of several herbs as preventive measures, which can be seen as intimidating when she recommends drin This book is packed with information about using herbs and lifestyle changes and nutrition to maintain good health and mental balance. Rosemary Gladstar definitely approaches the issue of health from a holistic standpoint that compounds all facets of one's way of living and interacting in order to properly address influencing factors and circumstances. Many of her recipes are based on using tonics of several herbs as preventive measures, which can be seen as intimidating when she recommends drinking four cups of several different types of tea a day, but the content also provides a clear picture of how to prioritize and incorporate healthy elements of living in fluid, seamless ways. She also provides descriptions of common herbs and their most well-known uses. This book is a must for anyone who may benefit from what she has to say: men, women, those with mental health issues, those who are either temporarily or chronically ill, those trying to stay healthy, children, the elderly, and those who want to look good with the help of natural methods. I highly recommend it.

    This book was required reading for my degree. Although I am not passionate about herbology, this book was definitely informative, fun to read, and had recipes that seemed easy enough to make at home. Granted, I have not tried any as of yet, I did learn quite a few new things about herbs that I did not know before, as well as natural solutions for hair, skin, and body. When I have some free time, I would be willing to try some of these out!

    I found this book really inspiring. I do not follow the recipes precisely, though, partly because, living in Spain, I just don't have the same herbs. I've ordered some seeds, but still, a lot of the plants featured here are American or North American species, so if you live in Europe, it might be hard to get and grow them. By the way, I'd be really grateful if somebody could point out a similar book about more Southern-ish-climate plants. That said, I think the book makes much more sense for thos I found this book really inspiring.

That said, I think the book makes much more sense for those able and willing to grow their own plants; you definitely can order some of those herbs dried, online, but I personally wouldn't find that particularly inspiring. And then, remember you do need to research those plants! And before that, study the structure of the book :) There's an appendix in the end which has all the Latin names, but before I found it, I'd spent some time googling them up (could've saved myself some time). The most important thing for me was, the book gave me the confidence to try some new herbal recipes, and I learnt of some plants that I can and will add to my garden.

    Rosemary Gladstar is the most trusted herbalist in America for good reason. This book compiles all of her best recipes and information from her other books in one small, easy to use, helpful book. We've been using her elderberry syrup recipe to treat the flu for years now (most of the recipes on the web are based on her recipe). If any of our family comes down with the flu (which is pretty rare anyway), they're generally much better by the second day and completely over it by the third if we do Rosemary Gladstar is the most trusted herbalist in America for good reason.

    I was thrilled to discover that this is the Storey Books printing of Rosemary Gladstar's Family Herbal which is not easily available any longer. The potions, lotions, salves, and teas are very effective but much of the medical information that goes with them is simply outdated. Be well-read about what you wish to correct and you'll be well-served by the recipes and procedures in this book. Thrilled to have it in my hot little hands!

    Amazing book. As a beginner with making my own, homemade remedies, this was a perfect collection of recipes and instruction, complete with color pictures and fabulous reference material. I have a slew of tabs marking favorite recipes using local flora, and I expect this book will get a lot of use in the years to come. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for the beginner, or even the more experienced person looking for a solid addition to their reference material.

    Excellent! I own many herbal books but somehow overlooked this gem until now (which is really without pardon since Rosemary Gladstar is essentially the mother of modern American herbalism). Frankly, I could toss half my herbal library and still be in good shape with just this book to fall back on. Practical, enjoyable and beautiful, her style is warm and friendly. Highly recommended for any herbalist.

    Easy-to-use guide that has fabulous mix of hebal information, recipes, and personal stories. A good starting point for people just starting out with herbal preparations, and a fun reference book for the more experienced. I have used her basic recipes as starting points to make amazing custom preparations and blends.

    Love this book! I borrowed it from the library, bought it for all my family for Christmas, and now definitely need my own copy. I tried three of the recipes--lotion, shampoo, and a sore throat tea--and all were amazing. Other herbal remedy books I looked at only said what herbs to use without giving recipes that suggest how to use them, so this was by far my favorite of what I've seen.

    I want to make everything from this book, even the ones that don't apply to me, because they all look so delightful! I love Rosemary Gladstar! Easily the most user-friendly, warm, and approachable book on herbs and remedies I have read.

    An excellent resource for information about the healing properties of herbs and how to use them as teas, tonics, tinctures, essential oils, salves, baths, and more. Covers various ailments, from everyday stuff (bad breath) to childcare to problems specific to aging and more.

    This is a fabulous go-to for anyone interested in making quick an relatively easy medicines for themselves and their family. As an herbalist, I have quite an extensive collection of recipes and reading material on this subject, and this book remains one of my most prized and most used.
