Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

A captivating encyclopedia on using herbs for well-being and all aspects of daily life

It turns out that Mother Nature is a brilliant chemist. Our ancestors have used indigenous herbs in daily life for thousands of years due to these plants’ ability to heal and promote good health. Now modern science has identified the compounds that give herbs their medicinal qualities, scent, and flavor. The extraordinary diversity of herbal plants has the potential to improve our health and well-being, and we are wholeheartedly incorporating herbs, both fresh and dried, into our lifestyles—for well-being, healing, gardening, beauty, ceremony, and a richer, fuller life.

Presented in three parts, Rodale’s 21st-Century Herbal first explores the historical relationship between people and herbal plants and how it has evolved over time. In the second part, readers will delve into an A-to-Z encyclopedia of 180 of the most useful herbs from around the globe, not only familiar herbs like bilberry and nasturtium, but also cutting-edge herbs from other cultures, like red bush tea and maca, that are now available in the West. The final section highlights how herbs create a “fuller” life and features herbal cooking techniques, ways to use herbs for beauty and the bath, ideas for daily herbal use (such as green cleaning, fragrances, decor, smudging, and dyeing), gardening and growing how-tos (with illustrated garden designs), and advice for holistic herbal pet care.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is an excellent source for anyone interested in herbs 14 juillet 2014

This is an excellent source for anyone interested in herbs. Regardless of how much you may already know there is a lot of background information that is both interesting and useful. Topics are well covered even with relatively esoteric plants. My only reservation is that certain herbs, such as rosemary or basil could be further expanded to include more information about different cultivars and their adaptability to different climates. Nonetheless, this is a valuable book that should be in anyone's library as a go to reference book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So much more than I expected 14 décembre 2014

I'm completely revamping my garden plans because of this book! I was planning on making a large flower garden and a small culinary herb garden. I bought Rodale's 21st-Century Herbal to help me select the culinary herbs. Then I got this book, and I was blown away by the beautiful pictures, all the information on the uses for the herbs, and the wonderful garden plans. I never imagined herbs could be so varied and so useful! I will definitely be putting this book to a lot of use. I highly recommend it for any serious gardener and/or cook.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good starter book for herbal practice 19 décembre 2014
Par Kristin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a very informative book. I love that you get a history on herbal practices along with an herbal encyclopedia and practical uses all in one. This is my go to book for a greener lifestyle. I would have appreciated more recipes to try, like a homemade lye soap recipe (not the melt and pour recipes that are in there)
