Though we are now going back to the (g)olden days to bring back the organic food, we l

I'm always up for reading about herbs and plants. This book took a completely different route than most herb encyclopedia type books. The author was clear and concise with his knowledge. I enjoyed this book.

Interesting

This was interesting because i love herbs and essential oils. I get more and more fascinated by their uses the more educated I get. I guess I just expected to learn something more from this.
