WIN your own copy! Rules at bottom!
More than one million copies sold? No wonder! The New Healing Herbs: The Essential Guide to More Than 125 of Nature’s Most Potent Herbal Remedies is a great way for anyone to learn more about the countless herbal remedy possibilities our plant friends offer. Author Michael Castleman brings a wealth of knowledge to this handy reference book; over the past 35 years he’s written over 1,500 magazine articles and is the author of 12 books.
I’m of the belief one cannot ever own too many herbal reference books. Cross referencing is a great way to learn. But also of value is often the “extras” within a guide, something the New Healing Herbs has a lot of. There’s a rather large and fascinating chapter on herbs in history, another on storage and preparation, and a very helpful Quick Reference Guide in the back which allows the reader to find the right herb for specific health conditions. Definitely something the home herbalist wants to have around.
The bulk of the book is separated by herb type, offering an organized breakdown of history, therapeutic uses, Rx recommendations, safety, even growing info. Herbs are organized alphabetically by common name, rather than Latin, which is extremely helpful for the lay herbalist. Readers will find endless hours of home herbal education in this thorough volume. I personally spent a good deal of time with it, and I enjoyed the variety of information within. The New Healing Herbs is definitely worth having as part of your alternative health library!
