Book Review: The Herbal Medicine-Maker’s Handbook

This book was the textbook for my first Botanical Medicine class because it teaches basic methods of plant preparation including: tincturing, extracting, decocting, infusing, etc. It’s also a great guide for making lotions and salves.

If you’re looking for a home remedy recipe book, this will probably not meet your needs as it does not have page after page of recipes. It does explain how much sugar to use in a syrup, how much alcohol to use in an extraction, and so on. The creativity of mixing herbs is left to the user.
