A modern herbal
Plant-based medicine for a calmer, healthier life. For thousands of years, people who had no access to clinical medicine knew how to boost their well-being by using the ingredients they found in plants. Herbs are the people’s medicine; often freely available and abundant, they are ready and waiting to be plucked from around you to soothe and heal your body and mind.
With guides for how to use and grow over 100 herbs- for example how to use fennel for indigestion, camomile for anxiety and nettle for hayfever – you’ll soon be heading into the garden, rather than opening the medicine cabinet.
Offering a fusion of botanical, practical, cultural and historical information, A Modern Herbal reveals how common herbs are the simple, cleansing way to better health and happiness. Hardback.
