Did you know there’s a powerful herbal medicine chest in your kitchen?
Alchemists of old sought to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Now, you can tap into that magic and transform common herbs and spices into incredible remedies that heal. What were once everyday foods and flavorings will become your personal kitchen apothecary.
Imagine being prepared for that next cold, scrape, headache, digestive issue, stressful day, or sleepless night with simple ingredients from your cupboard. Instead of pills, reach for:
Cinnamon Tea to soothe your throat . . . Garlic Hummus to support your immune system . . . Ginger Lemon Tea for cold and flu symptoms . . . Cayenne Salve to relieve sore muscles . . . Cardamom Chocolate Mousse Cake for heart health . . . A glass of Spiced Cold Brew Coffee as a powerful antioxidant . . .
In addition to offering dozens of inspiring recipes, herbalist Rosalee de la Forêt examines the history and modern-day use of 29 popular herbs, supporting their healing properties with both scientific studies and in-depth research into herbal energetics. You’ll learn how to match the properties of each plant to your own unique needs, for a truly personalized approach to health for you and your family.
This book is FULL of information. I love that I was able to flip through and highlight all of my favorite herbs but I suggest getting this as a paperback because the table of contents is really needed.
That said, there are so many herbs in this! I did read through many of them but once I realized there was more information than I could remember, I decided to highlight my favorites so I can go back. Each herb has how to use it, what that herb can do in its different forms, and then some herbs even have recipes so you can immediately start putting them to use. There are many uses to some of the herbs and this is all explained thoroughly.
This is an amazing book for anyone that wants to learn about how and when to use what herbs from in food that you cook to skin treatments. I found the information extremely interesting and cannot wait to get this book in book form.
In short: Kindle version is nice but not going to allow freedom for how much information is in this.
