Bella
Great resource. Only thing is that I couldn't find the lavender. Other that, I love it and want to buy a copy (my version was from the library).
StrangeBedfellows
Perhaps not the best book on herbs, but definitely an informative resource. Easy to navigate, this book contains a huge listing of herbs and their properties, preparation notes, cautionary notes, and more. I'm not always happy with the images and physical descriptions, but I've always been glad I purchased this.
Anjie Brown
This one is really good as a reference book. It has an encyclopedia-like section that gives detailed descriptions of what each herb can be used for and bunches of recomendations. I got it from the library, but I'm going to buy my own copy.
Kimberly
Comprehensive, gives studies to back up claims, talks about history, describes various treatments. A great reference book for anyone granola or not.
Maggie Fout
This is an awesome guide! Really easy to understand and very encompassing!
Jamie
Probably the best and most extensive guide to herbs I've ever read.
Kadrina
This book is great for the beginner in working with herbs.
Renee Marie
no-nonsense (nearly) complete catalog of herbs, their history, uses, and contraindications. For those of us who need a 'dummy' book on herbs, I recommend reading this oldie but goodie.
