Best Audience: Folks getting started with making herbal remedies and those who have some experience and want to expand their practice
I picked up The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual by James Green after I’d been studying herbs for a few years. I’d made a few tinctures and other preparations with instructions from my first mentor. I was living several timezones away from her and raising a small child – I wanted a trusty guide I could call on at all hours of the day or night.
I found what I needed in The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual to begin making a wide variety of herbal remedies for my family. He’s thorough and practical, which was absolutely perfect for someone like me who wanted to really explore and experiment. He offers explanation on each technique, including some of the whys that are so helpful for learning, alongside a few recipe ideas to get you started. I particularly loved the table in chapter 2 listing a reasonable selection of herbs for beginners with the extraction methods that work best for each.
I highly recommend The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual by James Green to folks who are just starting on their own herbal medicine-making journey…and most especially to those folks who are not fortunate enough to have a teacher, mentor, or family herbalist in their lives to guide them as they grow!
The Bottom Line: The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual by James Green has earned a permanent place on my bookshelf.
