Part Two is the actual recipes for herbal mixtures, including remedies for cough, asthma, digestive troubles, nausea, eczema, bug bites, cuts and scrapes, acne, earache, lice, warts, chickenpox, bladder infections, menstrual cramps, hair loss, acid reflux, diabetes, tinnitus, and dozens more. There are also blends for emotional relief from anxiety, insomnia, stress, depression, and PTSD.
There are chapters with recipes for Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Childhood Conditions, Emotional Well-Being, and Aging. There is even a chapter with Personal Care recipes for bath oils, shaving cream, bug repellent, sun care cream, facial cleansers, beard oil, mouthwash, and tooth powder.
There is a glossary at the end for some of the more specific terms and chemicals, as well as a Resource section with other books, magazines, websites, and shops where ingredients can be purchased.
I appreciated that the recipes give clear instructions, and there is a lot of good information in this book. Even if the reader knows nothing about herbs or how to prepare them, anyone would be able to start with this book and find it simple to get started!
I really love the colorful photos and illustrations of the different herbs. The book has beautiful green endpapers with plants and flowers on them.
I can’t wait to try some of these luxurious recipes!
