The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbal Remedies is one of the most comprehensive resources available on the subject of herbalism.
This massive, 175,000-word volume contains details of over 180 different herbs, plants, fruits and trees from ‘Acorn’ to ‘Yew’ so, whatever herb you’re interested in, you’re sure to find it detailed inside this encyclopedia.
In addition to detailed information regarding the usage of each of the wide variety of herbs, this encyclopedia also provides a fascinating history of each of them, including many references to their usage in works of classic literature and folklore. As such, it’s more than just a useful reference work - it’s your entry into a semi-forgotten world where your great-grandmother didn’t need to bother visiting the doctor to deal with common problems because the fields and hedgerows of the countryside provided all the remedies required.
As well as learning natural remedies that will cut down on your visits to the local drug store, you’ll learn some fascinating tidbits of trivia. Did you know that parsley is poisonous to parrots? That snakes hate wild liquorice?
Whether you’re a beginner who is looking for the perfect overview of natural herbal remedies or you’re already well-educated on the subject, you’re sure to find the Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbal Remedies to be an invaluable resource that you will refer to again and again.
