This book is a dream for anyone who’s ever been interested in seeking alternative cures. You will learn all about natural herbs and other ingredients (color photos for identification purposes included) and you’ll discover where you can find them.  From there, you’ll learn how to use these ingredients for medicinal purposes.

One tip I learned from the book is to the use of lavender oil for headaches. As a migraine sufferer, I’ve tried a lot different remedies, but I’ve never tried lavender, so I’m anxious to try it.

The books also features a variety of recipe, everything from massage oils and poultices, to teas and tonics. One recipe I found especially interesting is for Spruce Bath Salts, used for aches and pains.  There are also a recipe for Goji Berry Muffins, which is supposed to be good for eye problems, high blood pressure, and the immune system.

The writer’s of the book also recommend 5 top essential oils for those of us who are on a budget and are just starting out working with essential oils.  These are: Lavender, Tea Tree, Roman chamomile, Lemon, and Geranium.
