    This one is really good as a reference book. It has an encyclopedia-like section that gives detailed descriptions of what each herb can be used for and bunches of recomendations. I got it from the library, but I'm going to buy my own copy. This one is really good as a reference book.

    no-nonsense (nearly) complete catalog of herbs, their history, uses, and contraindications. For those of us who need a 'dummy' book on herbs, I recommend reading this oldie but goodie. no-nonsense (nearly) complete catalog of herbs, their history, uses, and contraindications.

    I’ve had this book on my bookshelf since I can remember, only occasionally dipping into it from time to time. With so much spare time on my hands this past three months I’ve found myself more and more revelling in the hedgerows of the British countryside and reacquainting myself with the abundant plant medicine that is available on our doorstep. This book has been my companion and has made an excellent accompaniment to the book Hedgerow Medicine by Julie Bruton.

This book has been my companion and has made an excellent accompaniment to the book Hedgerow Medicine by Julie Bruton. What I’ve liked most about this book is the folklore and history of each of the plants use throughout the ages helping one to reach deeply into the past and connect with this rich history of ours. It is however written by an American author so does not detail some of the common plants used for healing in the Uk but nonetheless it is a rich resource for any budding herbalist.

    I am happy that shepherd's purse is in the list for menstruation reduction. I am excited to try out goldenseal as the only other option. I haven't heard of it for that use. However I am suspicious of following his recommended dosage because self experiment with shepherd's purse let's me know that 1 teaspoon in 1 cup of water steeped for 10 minutes isn't going to work. I use at minimum 1/4 of powder. Making a savory pancake is my favorite method, just add one egg.

Its easy to null its effect by accidentally also using one of the many herbs designed for emmenagogue.

    Great reference book. In my opinion, can be a bit overwhelming for a novice herbalist. Still...excellent guide.

    This is a handy to have reference book for some of the more common herbs. It's laid out quite well and easy to read. A bit of historical reference is given for each herb, as well as it's Latin names. The common/historical uses for each herb is given as well as it's ideal growing conditions. The safety recommendations from the American FDA are listed for each herb, though that information is most likely out of date, as the book was published in 1991.

It's most likely not the most comprehensive herb reference book on the market, but I'm sure at the time of publishing it was probably pretty close. It is a good jumping off point for anyone wanting to read a little further into any particular herb. Worth having on the bookshelf.

    Perhaps not the best book on herbs, but definitely an informative resource. Easy to navigate, this book contains a huge listing of herbs and their properties, preparation notes, cautionary notes, and more. I'm not always happy with the images and physical descriptions, but I've always been glad I purchased this. Perhaps not the best book on herbs, but definitely an informative resource.

    Great resource. Only thing is that I couldn't find the lavender. Other that, I love it and want to buy a copy (my version was from the library). Great resource. Only thing is that I couldn't find the lavender. Other that, I love it and want to buy a copy (my version was from the library).
