A Medicine-Making Guide

For herbs to be effective healing agents for humans, the way they are gathered, stored, and ultimately dispensed is of utmost importance.

The Modern Herbal Dispensatory integrates modern science with the principles of Western herbalism and is incredibly detailed on all techniques involved in the preparation of herbal medicine. Few books cover as many herbs, or go as in-depth on the principles of harvesting, formulation, preparation, and administration of herbs in their various forms.

This full-color guide provides practical, detailed, and easy-to-follow instructions for making and using over 250 herbal medicines at home.
