I agree with the other reviews that the pictures are very appealing. The substance is great for beginners who might be just getting interested in herbal remedies, but I found it a little light for having "apothecary" in the title. The recipes are well laid out and easy to follow but if anyone wants something a bit more deep I recommend Making plant Medicine which is much more detailed.

edit >>> I found my self returning to this book as a reference when comparing recipes. Instead of being placed in a box or forgotten about under a pile, this now finds itself among a half dozen or other books I rely on when making my own recipes.

My original 3 star criticism was due to lack of scientific explanations why remedies work.

The actual recipes in here are very good and worth the money.

Loved it so much accidentally bought it twice! So a friend got lucky! It's a terrific book for beginners or those a little further on their path of home remedies.
Extremely well put together! Amazing visuals, as well. It shows you how to plant your own herbs, and what to do with them after. Must have for any herbalist, or anyone curious about herbs and how to use them for healing purposes.
wonderful book on herbs, usage in medicinal purpose and also culinary use, great book, a must have for anyone interested in apothecary and herbs!
This is a great starter for anyone wishing to begin harvesting or growing herbs. No start up details are missing
The book is a good coffee table book but not much help as far as info on making homemade natural remedies. Nice pics though

In an everchanging world where medicine so rapidly leaves the shelves with danger, I purchased this book with the intentions of learning more about apothecary and the art of home healing. Upon receipt of this book, I was impressed most by the introductions to herbs and growing them, the precise and easy instructions with photographs which made my own garden a breeze to create.

Each recipe and its uses are clearly laid out but as with all "treatments" one should use common sense before relying on such completely without consulting your doctor or pharmacist. I enjoyed many of the ideas in this book and have recommended it to many family members and friends.
Easy read, very informative
