100 Great Natural Remedies: Using Healing Plants at Home
Some of the most effective herbal remedies can easily be made at home using common wild flowers, herbs and hedgerow plants, and a variety of familiar fruits, vegetables and culinary seasonings. This book discusses the herbal products which can be bought for a first-aid cabinet, but concentrates mainly on the remedies which can be made from the contents of the kitchen cupboard, back garden or hedgerow. It also guides readers through first aid in the field, using wild plants when accidents happen miles from home.
