The Herbal Healing Handbook


Do you sip chamomile tea regularly, enjoying the stomach settling and sleep-inducing effects? Do you keep a pot of aloe growing for burns and big bites? Are rosemary, mint and thyme your favorites sachets? Have you experienced the rejuvenating power of lavender oil on your skin? These are just a few of the ways we can use herbs and the possibilities are boundless as remedies for both health and happiness. While the health care debates rage all around us, one way to take good care of yourself and your loved ones is with the “Kitchen Cabinet Cures” in this book. Your kitchen garden and herb patch can go a long way toward preventative healthcare and are much healthier for your pocketbook, as well. Think of all the herbs and plants you love and use often and then begin researching on their upkeep and care. Even containers filled with herbs can be your ticket to wellness for you and your family.
When our great grandmothers and the elders who came before us needed to attend to the cuts, bruises, colds, flu’s fevers and other illnesses their family suffered, they didn't have a corner drugstore. Instead these wise women relied on simple wisdom, common sense, and pantries well stocked with herbal remedies. These preparations were made from plants that grew in the kitchen garden or were wild weeds gathered in the fields and woods surrounding their homes. This stash of kitchen cupboard cures combines the wisdom of our elders with a modern kitchen herbalist’s sensibility. Yes, you will save money, but more importantly, you will begin to learn what works for you and master the art of self-care as you bring much comfort to your loved ones.
