      Nice list of Herbal Remedies, have to get ink for the printer to print this one.

    • #400293

      A great book to check is “The Herb Book” by John Lust published by Bantam Books – if you can find it. I got my copy about 20 years ago. He not only lists the herbs and their uses, but what part of the plant to use – ie root, stem, leaves, flowers etc and how – ie tincture, decotion, infusion, oil, powder etc.

      Also gives the how to’s of making herbal preparations, drying and storing herbs.

      wow – this is a most complete list for these ailments – thank you
