“Making Plant Medicine” is generally considered to be the most entertaining, level-headed and trustworthy reference available for learning to make standard herbal tinctures, teas, syrups, oils, salves and poultices.  The book introduces the concept of healing with herbs in a story format, following the adventures of a young family homesteading in the wild mountains of the Oregon Coast.  The rest of the book is about making safe, inexpensive, effective and harmless herbal medicines from herbs that can be grown in gardens in North America.  The formulary includes such important favorites as:  Arnica, Astragalus, Burdock, Calendula, Dandelion, Echinacea, Elecampane, Gentian, Goldenseal, Hawthorne, Ma-huang, Jiao-gu-lan, Lobelia, Nettles, Sage, Stevia and Saint John’s Wort. The fourth edition includes 28 new herbs including Aloe vera, Andrographis, Ashitaba, Brahmi, Chameleon Plant, Hops, Osha and Rhodiola.   May your copy soon be anointed with the happy splatter of homemade herbal remedies!
