There is nothing so magical as picking a ‘weed’ from beneath a hedge, brewing it in the cauldron of one’s own teapot and using that potion to restore health. This is everyday life-changing alchemy that we can all do once we recognise the exquisite power of nature. In recent years, especially in the face of the pandemic, there has been a groundswell of interest in and need for plant medicines. This book empowers readers to help themselves heal and thrive with simple tinctures, teas and other recipes using hedgerow plants, garden weeds and kitchen spices, whilst encouraging us to forage for our own medicines.
There’s Menopause Tea, Horse Chestnut Gel and Brain Spice Condiments, alongside chapters including Nourishing Your Adrenals, Herbs for the Heart and Muscles and Joints, a huge amount of wisdom harvested from the author’s decades of professional practise as a medical herbalist.
