Amidst the recipes that you'd expect from this renowned herbalist, there is a TON of side columns, stories, and interrupting anecdotes cluttering up the pages. These stories rarely have much helpful to say about the herb or remedy being discussed; rather, they are, by and large, somewhat eye-roll inducing references to ley lines, fairies, or people that she knows. While some of the stories of herbalists she knew ended up being interesting, I mostly found them distracting. The title of a book like this makes me think it should be dedicated to the study and use of plants, with an emphasis on their properties and recipes. And while they're in the book, it really seems more of a focus on the author's life. A more truthful title, in my opinion, would have been something like, "Rosemary Gladstar Talks About Her Mystical Experiences; Also Here's Some Tea Recipes."
If you're looking for a book to help you learn the building blocks of herbal medicine, I recommend her other title that I mentioned above--I found that one to be much more clearly written, focused and useful. Her wheat-berries of good herbal wisdom are totally lost in the big heap of chaff that this book ended up being.
This book was one of them.
I give this book 5 stars because it is superbly written and well thought out. Each recipe is very detailed and useful. Many of the ailments mentioned and treated with natural medicine are ones my family and I suffer from, a few examples would be infertility, irregular periods, pain management, sexual impotence, headaches, common colds and flu, constipation, indigestion and so many many more. I can't even begin to name all the recipes in this book. Rosemary not only cover your basic everyday ailments but she also covers your more unusual ailments, one which my hubby had struggled with for months now and has been to embarrassed to go to a doctor about was actually mentioned in this book, I was able to help mix up an herbal remedy for him using the recipe in this book. I also have a child which like many kids has her own set of childhood issues, this book has many remedies for kids too and I can't wait to try some out and see how they work, especially the cold and flu remedies as we usually treat those with your conventional medicine, but now I really want to see how effective these remedies are. Rosemary does make sure to mention that these recipes were never intended to treat or diagnose an illness and it is no replacement for actual care from a dr. However I do believe this book will be a very effective tool in treating common issues and if your like me I think its a perfect companion to aid with conventional medicine, I've come to the conclusion in life that conventional medicine has its place and can be beneficial, but for common ailments the earth mother gas given us all we need and its best to try those medicines she offers us before we turn to the more invacive medicine offered in modern times.
In all I would highly recommend this book. I will be keeping this book close at hand.
One more thing Rosemary put together many herbal concoctions for a "hot date" night, there are recipes for love liquor, good life wine, men's long life elixir and energy balls, all of these recipes help the male libido as well as energize both male and females for a very romantic evening. I though that was a very nice addition to the book since as a married woman who is married to an older man I know how sometimes not everything wants to work like its supposed to either due to medications or just the days stresses, so this for me was a really wonderful addition and I honestly can say I did not expect it but it was a lovely surprise. I think the men folk will enjoy those recipes for sure who doesn't want to have a romantic evening with a loved one.
So that is my review. Thank you Miss Gladstar for this lovely book I do believe it is one I will holdonto forever.
