Since the dawn of time herbal teas have been an indispensable aid to maintaining good health. The Romans boasted that they could do without doctors because of the power of herbs. For centuries herbs were kept on hand in every home to "dispel all manner of discomfort." With today's growing interest in the use of natural remedies as an alternative to pharmaceutical treatments, herbal teas have once again become an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
This book describes in great detail the virtues of the numerous herbal teas available today and gives instruction for their preparation and use. The author presents more than a hundred varieties of tea-making herbs that can soothe a wide range of physical and emotional discomforts. Many of these have proven to be just as effective as their medical counterparts but at a much smaller cost. For example, feverfew and wild strawberries are both excellent for helping with migraines, parsley clears the skin, and dandelion acts as a mild digestive. With illustrations of the most useful herbs and 96 pages packed full of information in this great softback book.
