Herbs are quite literally everywhere; it is only our ability to recognise
their value that has been lost. Vicky and Kim explore the traditional uses
of herbs combined with a modern and scientific understanding for a truly
holistic approach so that you can use herbs to treat ailments and improve
your general wellbeing.
The book contains fascinating information about herbs and with suggestions
of what each herb can be used for. Did you know that daisies infused in oil
can be used to reduce bruises? That roses can help grieving and anxiety? Or
that elderflower cordial can bring down a temperature? There is also an
introduction to each of the body’s systems (nervous, respiratory etc.) and
which herbs are best for treatments. And of course, the book is peppered
with vinegars, balms, oils, tinctures, creams, lotions and syrups to create
your own little herbal health kit. Vicky and Kim also encourage people to
reconnect with their local environment in addition to growing herbs in
their gardens or windowsills.
