This Book ...

From time to time I come across a herbal or essential oil book that teaches in ways that is uncomplicated and easy to understand, a book is that is so good that I just have to share it.

This book: The Herbal Handbook for Homesteaders by Abby Artemisia is that kind of book and is the kind of book I want in my herbal library!  

I've seen a lot of herbal books and quite frankly, a good number of them lose me because they go into some really deep stuff.  Abby Artemisia cuts through the really deep stuff and presents it in such a way that is easily understood.

It's divided into 6 sections:

Getting Started
The Mints and herbal Tea

Immunity and Remedies
Bug Repellents and Skin Soothers
Allergies and Pain
Eating Herbal through the Seasons

It has lots of clear and colorful pictures.  In addition to the detailed pictures the book has lots of recipes and herbal how-to's.

For each herb the author discusses, she gives a picture along with the: 

(the parenthesis parts are my explanation of the category)

botanical name
family
growing zones (where can it be grown)
growing requirements  (what does it need to thrive)
harvesting tips  (what parts to harvest and when)
therapeutic parts (what parts of the plant can be used for what)
benefits (what ailments does it help)
For children? (is it safe for children)
For animals? (is it safe for animals)
preparations (ways to prepare it)
contraindications (what not to do)

This book is going to be a great addition to my herbal library and is one that will get a lot of use!  It's a keeper!
