    I found this book to be excellent and even better than expected. I have been studying herbalism for a few years now, so am not a beginner, but not a clinical herbalist either. It is perfect both for someone just beginning their herbal journey as the information is written in an approachable and usable fashion, however I also believe the more advanced herbalist would benefit from this text as there are numerous details included along with a chapter on advanced techniques. Additionally there is information on essential oils, flower waters and the like, that tends to be something more familiar to aromatherapists. Yet, these are truly an excellent addition to one’s plant healing repertoire, so it was nice to see them seamlessly added in. I was pleasantly surprised at the materia medica at the end. It is extremely thorough and contained many familiar herbs, but also many new ones. There is also dosing information included which I found helpful. My only suggestion, primarily because I am a visual learner, is it would have been nice to to have pictures of each herb, especially because there were quite a few that were new to me, but as the authors point out there are many other books for that, so it wasn’t a big problem.

    This is definitely an excellent addition to your herbal library! Easy to read and understand, but thorough in its information! I am extremely pleased I purchased it! I plan to share this title with others when I teach courses on herbalism as it provides an excellent foundations and builds to advanced skills.

    My copy of this book is already showing signs of regular use – sticky tabs protruding here and there, notes in the margins, a few stains. While the book is genuinely beautiful and feels really good in your hands, the wealth is in the details. The first half of the book starts out with the basics and progresses through advanced medicine-making techniques all in understandable terms. Included here are instructions for concentrating your medicine and formulas for a variety of needs. More than just a basic instruction manual, this book encourages medicine makers to match the medicine to the person and the condition creating custom remedies as needed. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make gobs of your favorites to share with friends. The second half is a comprehensive materia medica. There are gems throughout, starting in the introduction where we are told which part of the yarrow plant to use to soothe tooth pain, to near the end where we’re given two preparations of scullcap with differing uses.
