Absolutly love this book! The pictures are clear and detailed, the index and illness guide in the back is very helpful. I do wish they had more pictures of plants. For example the book will have 10 plants on a page and only show pictures of 2 plants (And they're always the super common plants, which bothers me. I would rather have detailed imagery of plants that aren't that common) but I guess that is me being but picky. I also am going to be picky and complain that some of the plants in the book i feel shouldn't be in there like corn, lettuce, ans carrots. There wasn't much information to be given so I feel it was a waste of time and energy to even add them when they could have used the space on plants like chinese mug wort, regular mothers wort or lavandin.
Lastly, I only found it with one plant, but it had a very tiny detail wrong. It said it wasn't edible when it actually is and is enjoyed to this day in italy as a common side. But again me being nit picky. I really love this book it is my go-to. It's really wonderful that's why, even with my complaints, I gave it 4 stars. I would give it 4 and a half if I could.

Very clear and decisive! I have been looking for an herbal book that gives lots of information and helps to see, which parts are used, how to cultivate it, what is the uses of the herbs, and wow this book has everything I was looking for. I thought it was a bit expensive and I don't usually buy books over $20, but this was so worth it!! I am glad I got this book. It came in today with the rest of my order and I haven't been able to put it down. I am going to start taking notes on it. I have an autoimmune disease called Crohn's and well they haven't been able to treat me with conventional medications because I am allergic to them in one way or another it seem. No matter what we try. I am now getting really into herbal medicine because this is my last resort to help me. So this book will be well used. Thank you to the seller it had arrived in great shape, and I am extremely please with it. I would definitely say if people really want some good information about herbs this is definitely the book to have on hand and as a reference guide. I love the book!!! It's going to be a great help!!!

I have numerous books on medicinal herbs. This is the one I go back to again and again. It is clearly written and informative. I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to after a few years of opening this book up almost daily.

I bought this book for school, and found I use it almost daily for personal use. The pictures are very detailed, and I was able to use the pictures and the very detailed descriptions to identify some of these herbs growing in my own yard! I have also been able to find some new uses for many of the herbs I already had at home. The book is easy to use, you can look up herbs with several different indexes by herb itself or for intended uses such as if you want to see what herbs you can use for a stomach ache. I have recommended it to friends who are also looking into more natural means of health and health support.

This book is great. Each section will tell you the item and follows with a Very descriptive explanation from habitats, history, research as well as used for each one. Not to worry the book is full of pictures as well to help you identify the plant or parts of the plant you should use.

Consider. Clear. Well defined. Perfectly illustrated. Exactly what anyone would need. Whether you're a master herbalist or a mediocre medicine man, there's so much here to learn that, like me, you could sit for hours reading about a plants history, how to make a poultice for it to treat burns, or how to turn its leaves into a tincture for a toothache for instance. Literally one of the best purchases I've made in the last 4 years.
I bought this for an intro herbalism course I was taking. I love this book for its wonderful photographs. this book is great for those just starting to learn about herbs and their preparations. I love the part in the back where there are basic instructions for making tinctures, salves/ balms, decoctions, infusions and so on....lovely basic herb book. Good for a reference / learning material.
