By explaining the properties of specific herbs and the art of preparation, Rosemary Gladstar demonstrates not only how to achieve healing through herbs but good health as well.
This book is coherent and fun to read. All women should have this book in the house. I always look in this book first once I know what is wrong. Rosemary tells me exactly how I should treat the problem and prevent future problems.
This is the very best of its kind. Ms Gladstar is a very informed and gifted author and healer. Through this book I was able to treat myself with herbs to stop my threatened miscarriage. I have given it as a gift to all my closest female friends. Fabulous!
I just got this book last night and, as an almost complete stranger to herbalism, I am finding it enthralling. I couldn’t put it down! Ms. Gladstar has got me hooked…
