The Herb Book

The Herb Book: The Complete and Authoritative Guide to More Than 500 Herbs - John B. Lust, Ralph Pereida

This is an amazing book that I am glad to add to my collection. I have always been interested in botany, gardening and the different uses of plants and herbs and this book is full of over 2,000. It begins with lists of herbs that can be used for different situations (i.e. upset stomach, trouble sleeping), then continues on to specifics on individual herbs, including recipes/preparations for the use of each. There are some beautifully done hand-drawn pictures included throughout as well. A very interesting and helpful book that will be of quite a bit of use throughout the rest of my life.

 

Note: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
