Product description

A comprehensive, full-color guide to making and using approximately 250 herbal medicines at home, The Modern Herbal Dispensatory provides instructions for everything from harvesting to administering low-cost, DIY remedies to treat more than 100 illnesses. Readers who appreicate the health-giving properties of herbal medicines but are discouraged by the high price of commercial products can no make their own preparations for a fraction of the cost. Expert herbalists Thomas Easley and Steven Horne tell you everything you need to know about harvesting, preparing, and administering herbs in many different forms - covering fresh and bulk dried herbs; capsules; extracts in water, alcohol, glycerin, vinegar, and oil; and preparations like essential oils and flower essences.

The book explains why some preparations of the same herb will obtain better results than others and how capsules, teas, tinctures, or glycerites of the same plant will not have exactly the same effect so that you can choose the appropriate method for the effect you desire. The authors also cover topical applications of herbs as salves, lotions, poultices, tooth powders, ear drops, and more, and offer an extensive chapter on herbal hydrotherapy. In addition to providing instructions on how to prepare single herbs, they lay out the principles of herbal formulation, a topic that has been largely ignored in other references. More comprehensive than any other guide, thoroughly researched, and presented with ease of use in mind, this book is an excellent reference for those who want to produce all the herbal remedies they need - and to save money in the process.
