Whereas The Essential Herbal is a great kitchen-craft guide to making all sorts of herbal remedies and understanding the Essential Thirteen herbs, the new book -- The Authentic Herbal Healer -- explores herbs from all over the world, with both traditional and clinical insights into their use and chemistry. The new book also contains a detailed materia medica with more than 130 herbs, a thorough glossary, and guidelines for dozens of edible wild plants.
Much gratitude to all of those who have hailed this book as "an inspiring and powerful treatise, " "warm and open", and "fascinating." I frequently hear that this book is now the one-and-only herbal medicine-making book people are keeping on their shelves, and for that I am grateful and humbled.
It's written for the passionate spirit who wants to delve into a few herbs and get to know them intimately. The 13 Essential Herbs I introduce here are those that I turn to again and again for their protective, nourishing and strengthening qualities, and these are the familiar herbs we all have access to.
Chock-full of recipes that can easily be made in the kitchen, from herbs easily found in the garden or backyard, The Essential Herbal is a friendly companion and the fun friend who pulls you by the hand and says, "Come on! Let's go outside and harvest and taste and then come back to make our goodies." With careful step-by-step instructions, this book shares the philosophy and hands-on methods for making a wide variety of traditional herbal medicines: tinctures, infusions, decoctions, syrups, honeys, vinegars, oxymels, salves, oils, salts, powders, and so much more.
