  • In my opinion, one of THE herbal books to have on your reference shelf Accurate, concise description and plenty of illustrations Great for amateur herbalists to learn what parts of the plant are used and why Of course, one should always know what they have before using it to make any remedy so I highly recommend using a field guide for plant identification purposes.


  • This is a great book for finding specific treatment for your own personal needs It simply lists out the name of the herb and which part of your body it heals This is a great reference book for a beginner wanting to learn about medicinal uses of herbs.


  • I have read a few dozen herbal books in an attempt to find good references.This is the first one I ve decided to buy It isn t perfect For example, it didn t talk about the potential liver danger of Comfrey even though some other books said Comfrey was for external use only I realize that the author s experience might lead him to believe Comfrey is safe, but I d like to at least be alerted to the opposing opinion so I can research it myself.The book s format relies on herbal actions e.g carminati [...]


  • I am currently studying Herbal Medicine so this is one of the first purchases I made I now own a collection of Phytotherapy books and I still turn to Holistic Herbal for simple, clear, easy to read information on herbs and their medicinal properties.I love how this book is divided up into all of the organ systems, diseases, herbs from A Z and their chemical constituents and properties The back of the book contains a quick cross reference guide to each herb, botanical names, parts used, constitue [...]

  • very diverse assortment of plants in the reference section quite thorough and technical my only issue with this book was the guide to transforming the plants could be simplified further if one wants to make oils or balms then there s no need to make a decoction with water then adding oil and simmering the water off i find this burns the plant material and makes the mix susceptible to flashing skipping some of the processes actually makes it easier and less dangerous.


  • Published back in the 80s, this is still a handy reference for understanding the ins and outs of herbs, how they grow, their benefits, and I really like how they cover and focus on a holistic approach to herbal remedies and their impacts on various systems like our circulatory, respiratory, nervous, digestive, muscular, skeletal, and glandular systems Nice, east to understand graphics and illustrations, as well A good one to keep around the house Reviewed by Bossy K


  • Actually started using this years ago, but recently became re acquainted during my big binge of wholistic health this summer Makes herbal medicine exceedingly accessible and appealing I won t lie sometimes this is my bedtime reading, like the hippie s DSM or something.


  • Just keep going back to this one b c it describes in detail how to make your own herbal preparations Hoffmann gives easy to understand, illustrated instructions and plant identification illustrations that help to demystify a scientific subject.




  • I do use this book, but not as much as I thought I would This is mainly because when I am feeling unwell I can t be bothered with the time it takes to gather and prepare the remedies.
