‘A Woman’s Book of Herbs’ by Elisabeth Brooke


Bursting with definitive information on a range of herbs, A Woman’s Book of Herbs is an extensive guide to their use in healing the mind, body, and spirit:

– where, when, and how to collect herbs, and how to dry, store, and prepare them

– how to use them: their physical, emotional, and ritual uses

– their mythological history and astrological significance

– their main chemical components

– recipes for food, drinks, and medicines

Infused with the author’s empowering holistic approach to healing and her keen sense of importance for women of having understanding and control over the causes of ill-health and the variety of healing processes, A Woman’s Book of Herbs is a unique and indispensable work.

This is a reissue of the much-loved classic, first published in 1992.
