This handbook looks at what herbs are, and how they can be used and enjoyed. The first part of the book provides advice on growing, gathering and storing herbs and how to make various herbal preparations such as teas, tinctures, syrups, infused oils, poultices and creams.
The main part of the book is given over to a directory of over 120 of the most popular and commonly used herbs. Each entry gives information on usage, parts used and particular properties. A small section on lesser known herbs is included.
