Deb Sole has a beautiful connection with nature. She begins her book with a little history in the use of herbs, which I found very enlightening.

Though a little bit on the---hate to say it-- crunchy side, this is a great little reference for women, especially concerning hormone balancing.

Though mostly directed towards women, there are recipes that focus on immune enhancing and more that don't specifically pertain to any gender. All in all a good reference.

I would have liked this book better if it were less wiccan/new age/neo-pagan/goddess worship heavy. I fully believe in the healing potential of herbs, but it was hard to get into this book that suggested taking these herbs after lighting a candle and praying to my ancestors.
I highly recommend this book for people who are interested in understanding more about the intricacies of woman health issues as they relate to the spiritual and natural world. I found that while reading, I took many moments to reflect on the joys of being female:)
