A very thorough reference for growing, harvesting, processing, storing, and using herbal remedies. Will definitely have to refer to this book again and again during garden planning time, and for ideas/recipes for various herbal goodness.

*Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC, provided by the author and/or the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

As someone living with a chronic illness, I have made it my mission to research ways to maintain a healthier lifestyle without the use of costly and counterproductive pharmaceutical drugs with their ever growing list of side effects. I took that route for many years and felt like I was only existing, not living. Then, I was introduced to medicinal herbs, and they worked for me. They gave me back my life. This book especially has so many herbal remedies that I was not aware of and they look very ...more

Shelves: herbal
I love reading herbal remedy books, and this is one of my favorite to date. It's well-organized and covers everything the new and experienced gardener needs to grow and use healing herbs. The pictures are beautiful, and readers will appreciate the step-by-step directions. The author provides tips on the best uses for each herb and offers the perfect amount of information for readers (comprehensive but concise). The recipes include options for sprays, skin care, tinctures, teas, food, and more.

Wow! This will be my new go to in 2019. I will spend the rest of summer growing, harvesting and concocting from this book. It contains northern hemisphere plants that lucky for us down under are readily available in our gardens. Also includes foraging plants which is really hot right now in the sustainability community. Groves clearly instructs her readers on how to make teas, tinctures, decoctions and even flower essences. She precisely explains what works best for each ingredient - information ...more

I am reviewing this book ’Herbal Remedies’ for Maria Noel Groves, Storey Publishing and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review
Decided to review this as this month as we are starting to grow herbs and I had been considering how we could use them apart from in cooking. I never realised there were so many uses and simple remedies too. A great handy resource to have on hand.

I love the way this book is presented, the introduction has plenty of safety advise and suggests one checks with at least three other sources the use of the herbs in this book, more to get familiar with all aspect of the plant.
The book has wonderful photos and is divided into various sections such as growing, preserving, propagating and harvesting. There is information on how to make the tincture, teas, powders and much more, and these remedies can be used for stress relief, brain boosters, pain

This is just the book I've been looking for. It's got so much information on choosing and growing herbs...and then on what you can do with them. It covers health, medicine, food flavoring, tinctures, and more. I only read about a third of the way thru this book and decided that I would be buying a hard copy of it for my reference shelves.

While living in Alaska , I attended some classes given by the Cooperative Extension Office at UAF. The subject was herbal remedies specific to Alaska. I had been looking for a class in this area, (I now live in Oklahoma) but had not found one that seemed as good as the Alaskan one. This book could be used as a textbook to teach the sort of class I attended. The information provided will bring you a new awareness of the plant life around you and how you can utilize them for your health and welfar ...more

Loved the fact that Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies read like a novel but was great at teaching at the same time. It was done well and in such a way that all audiences could enjoy it form amateur herbalists like myself to someone with ages of experience.
