Présentation de l'éditeur

Whether you're struggling with insomnia, the kids have eczema, or your partner is feeling under the weather, this book could have the answer.

With easy recipes ethnobotanist James Wong shows how to make simple creams, salves, teas and much, much more from the stuff growing in your window box, the local garden centre or in the hedgerows. Using the flowers, fruit, roots, trees, vegetables and herbs that are all around us James provides preparations to help relieve a whole range of common conditions, including acne, anxiety, cold sores and general aches and pains - plus great ideas for beauty treats such as bath bombs and shampoos.

Inspired by his grandmother in Malaysia who taught him about the health-giving properties of plants, James uses his top class academic knowledge to show how easy - and cheap - it is to make creams, lotions, lozenges and more which can help relieve the symptoms of a variety of common complaints. He reveals how many plants contain the same active ingredients as over-the-counter drugs and chooses his Top 100 plants to grow or buy, complete with ideas for a whole range of uses. So unleash the power of plants and soothe the symptoms of everyday ailments the natural way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful! 25 mars 2010
Par Norma Lehmeierhartie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Grow Your Own Drugs is filled with (mostly) easy to make recipes--all from natural ingredients that are readily available. The book is also beautiful to look through, making it more likely you will feel motivated to actually try many of the recipes. The book covers beauty recipes, and recipes to make you feel better or cure what ails you.

I have been waiting for this book to be available in the States, as a friend from the UK had been raving about it.

I already use (almost) only natural/organic beauty products and drugs, but look forward to replacing some store-bought with home made. Furthermore, I cook from scratch and make most of my cleaning products from scratch. Finally, I do use essential oils and flower essences to help alter my moods and for medicinal purposes--and they work. (For example, lavender is calming, tea tree for blemishes, etc.) So, Grow Your Own Drugs this is a natural step forward for me.

I also like that the author, James Wong, is a scientists who has also studied the properties of plants around the world--this is no hobbyist! (As someone who has dabbled with the property of plants, I recognize many of the cures as those that are well established.) So, I feel comfortable will his advice and recipes.

A quick look shows me that I already have many ingredients necessary to get me started on making several recipes, including one for inflammation, sore throats and for the upcoming season--bee stings.

Highly recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The sore throat recipe actually works--and really well! 25 mars 2010
Par Lady Bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
I'm always skeptical about home remedies, but at the same time want to use products that are locally-grown, homemade, and not infused with unnatural chemicals. So I decided to give this book a try. Not only is it GORGEOUS--the photography is really phenomenal--and not only is the author gorgeous too (and British! His BBC show is on Youtube and he's got that great accent!) but the recipes really, truly work! I made the sore throat recipe and found it instantly soothing. And for fun I tried out the bath bomb, which was much simpler than I thought it would be and worth it for the nice soak!

Would recommend in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to take care of their body the natural way.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Some nice ideas--- 5 janvier 2011
Par Ms. H. Tooth - Publié sur Amazon.com
My mum gifted me this book and A Year with James Wong, as she enjoyed the series n thought it would be right up my street, which indeed it is. It is full of colour and very visually pleasing to the eye but I cant help that feel it was written for the authors fan club, as it includes no fewer than 15 full page colour shots of himself...I'm sure he's a lovely guy but personally I would prefer more step by step pics of preparing the recipes (with explanatory notes!)...or else more recipes!
This book is full of very nice ideas, but not all of the recipes are simple! I live on a farm in Central Portugal and have a lot of established aromatic herbs, nettle patches, medicinal herbs and flowers, shrubs softfruit and trees..including pine and eucalyptus trees, but even so only a half dozen or so of these recipes would i be able to make immediately, and some of the combinations of ingredients are not seasonally compatible.
I think Wong could mention for a lot of the recipes that they can be simplified, and that the glycerine etc is not entirely necessary if you just want to use beeswax and make a salve rather than gel. I'm not entirely sold on adding white soap, gelatine or vitamin C powder either, but have the knowledge to make my own adaptions.
I like the top 100 plant section at the back of the book, which makes this book worth having for the beginner, but as another reviewer pointed out the contra indications of the herbs are rather overglossed. Hops for example can have the opposite of the desired sedative effect on the insomniac...individual herbs do have a very specific effect on each individual person, so use with caution!! I would never make such a potent mix as his headlice lotion for my little ones hair...not to mention I'm familiar with all the ingredients and it would smell REVOLTING!! Olive oil, vinegar, and a 2-3 drops of thyme n teatree essential oils will suffice, as long as you use a good metal nit comb (preferably spiralled) and repeat after 7 days..works 100 per cent and does't smell foul!
I must say I've only begun reading the year book these days since some rain arrived, but content wise it seems much more promising, and I will review it when I have had a thorough read and made a few experiments.
This book is a lovely gift for a James Wong fan, and a nice one to have on the shelf, but won't become one of my main references to be sure. If you enjoyed this book and don't already have Laurel Vukovics 1001 Natural Remedies then I highly reccommend it, as it has LOTS of these kind of recipes with many simple variants of each, and also tips for the home and petcare too, a must have for those who want to rid their lives of pharmaceutical products. For those more interested in herbs for healing have a look at Kitty Campions books, not so colourful and beautifully illustrated, but really the advice of a long term practitioner and professional herbalist.
I know this review was long winded but hope it is also helpful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AMAZING, all natural resource! 7 avril 2010
Par Laura Covell - Publié sur Amazon.com

God gave us everything we need for health maintenance and healing (for the most part) and this book spells out the most beneficial herbs and plants, identifying them, and how to utilize them. Lots of great recipes for everything from lip balm to athlete's foot remedy. It's a great read - I did it in about 2 hours. Highly recommended!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Grow Your Own Drugs 8 janvier 2011
Par Spider Monkey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Based on the BBC TV series, `Grow Your Own Drugs' gives us assorted tips and recipes for natural remedies and beauty treatments.

This starts off by discussing how to create and harvest your ingredients, as well as the things you may need to do so. It then goes on to suggest various remedies for a variety of complaints. These are broken up into chapters, Digestive Disorders, Skin Complaints, Kids, Aches and Pains, Women's Stuff, Under the Weather, Mind and finally Face and Body. This then finishes up looking at 100 plants and their uses. This last section has a picture of each plant, its Latin name, what it's good for, a brief recipe for its use and how to grow it.

Some of these recipes are easier to make than others and range from making a quick cup of fresh herbal tea, to more involved recipes where you need to prepare and cook the ingredients more.

The recipes I have tried seemed to have worked reasonably well and are tasty to boot. It is always good to try these natural remedies for minor complaints before seeking modern pharmaceutical alternatives, but as ever common sense should prevail and you should seek medical advice for more serious complaints.

This is an accessible and easy to follow introduction to herbal remedies and should provide enough info to get you started in this area of healthy living. It is an added bonus that a lot of these recipes are tasty or smell nice and are inexpensive to create at home.
