This comprehensive, polychrome, comprehensive guide provides detailed, easy-to-follow instructions for the manufacture and use of approximately 250 medicinal plants at home, including practical tips and many effective formulas developed and tested by the authors, the two expert herbalists years of experience.Readers who appreciate the beneficial properties of medicinal plants but are discouraged by the high prices of commercial products can now make preparations for a fraction of the cost.The authors will tell you everything you need to know about harvesting, preparation, and administering herbs in different forms, including fresh, dry bulk herbs, capsules, water extracts, alcohol, glycerin, vinegar and oil and preparations even as essential oils and floral elixirs.Also, the book covers topical applications of plants such as ointments, lotions, cataplasms, tooth powders, ear drops and more and includes a comprehensive chapter on herbal hydrotherapy.The modern herbal dispensary explains why different preparations of the herb itself will get better results, showing how different herbal capsules, herbal teas, dyes or glycerides from the same plant will not have exactly the same effect on the body.Leading herbalists Thomas Easley and Steven Horne have tested and proven the herbal formulas they offer, as well as suggestions for the treatment of more than 100 diseases.They set out the principles of herbal formulation and also provide instructions on how to prepare plants alone, a procedure that has been largely ignored in other references.More complete than any other guide, carefully studied, beautifully illustrated and presented with ease of use in mind, this book will take its place as the Prime Minister’s reference for those who want to produce all the herbal remedies they need and save money in the process.
