This book is a must have for anyone interested in
Rosemary Gladstar's writing is so easy to understand. She will open your eyes to the world of herbs like no other. Her recipes are so simple and easy to grasp. Why spend so much money on tinctures, teas, and salves when you can create your own for a fraction of the cost!!! The pictures in the book are beautiful, and it covers a variety of tonics formulated for children,women,men,and elderly alike. The back pages of the book have a herbal apothecary where most herbs mentioned in the book are explained in greater depth. PLEASE NOTE: This book was originally published in hardcover as "Rosemary Gladstar's Family Herbal" so if you already have that book, you may not find this newest edition a whole lot different. I do however, reccommend another of her books called "Herbal Healing for Women" it overlaps the women's section of this book somewhat, but goes more indepth on issues from teen years to menopause. The only complaint I have about this book is that I wish it would have been hardcover, it's already worn on the edges but that is to be expected when the contents are so useful that it is read alot.
