Herbs are quite literally everywhere; it is only our ability to recognise their value that has been lost. Vicky and Kim explore the traditional uses of herbs combined with a modern and scientific understanding of a truly holistic approach so that you can use herbs to treat ailments and improve your general wellbeing. The book contains fascinating information about herbs and with suggestions of what each herb can be used for. Did you know that daisies infused in oil can be used to reduce bruises? That roses can help grieving and anxiety? Or that elderflower cordial can bring down a temperature? There is also an introduction to each of the body’s systems (nervous, respiratory etc.) and which herbs are best for treatments. And of course, the book is peppered with vinegars, balms, oils, tinctures, creams, lotions and syrups to create your own little herbal health kit. Vicky and Kim also encourage people to reconnect with their local environment in addition to growing herbs in their gardens or windowsills. An all-encompassing guide for the beginner, The Handmade Apothecary is filled with guidance, useful tips and tried-and-tested recipes that will inspire people to make their own remedies.

A great go to book This is a great go to book for those times when you need a herbal remedy. It’s packed full of loads of useful information about all kinds of different types of plants and their various uses and there are lots of photos to help you identify the plants.

Excellent all round book Excellent condition, minimally packaged and arrived on time. The book itself is very good and well worth buying. The text is clear and easy to understand and the pictures are clear and well presented. I like the fact that all the “recipes” are given a shelf life and how to store. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to know more about herbs and essential oils, what properties they have and how to use them.
