Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal – In Brief

Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal – In Brief – Review

Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal BY ROSEMARY GLADSTAR STOREY BOOKS; $24.95

If, like me, you have a deep love of herbs and enjoy making your own remedies, you will appreciate this gorgeous book by one of the most influential herbalists in the United States. Flipping through Gladstar’s book, I can only wonder why I don’t drink tea more often and why I’ve chosen to live in a city instead of the country. She has recorded 150 of her most-loved health and beauty recipes, and includes a thorough appendix of nearly 100 herbs. Those who want a dose-driven herbal will be sorely disappointed–this is just not Gladstar’s style. Rather, she embraces an earth wisdom that can’t come from a lab, inspiring you to eat the weeds and play in the flowers.
