THE BEST GARDENING BOOKS OF THE YEAR - GARDENS ILLUSTRATED 'Informative and enthusiastic' i Paper PLANT-BASED MEDICINE FOR A CALMER, HEALTHIER LIFE It's easy to turn to the pharmacy when we're stressed, sick or feeling under the weather, but what if you turned to your garden instead? In this accessible and easy to use manual, horticultural expert, former Gardener's World presenter and Guardian columnist, Alys Fowler, shows how to take control of your health by adopting a more natural lifestyle. For thousands of years, people who had no access to clinical medicine knew how to boost their well-being by using the ingredients they found in plants. Herbs are the people's medicine; often freely available and abundant, they are ready and waiting to be plucked from around you to soothe and heal your body and mind. With guides for how to use and grow over 100 herbs - for example how to use fennel for indigestion, camomile for anxiety and nettle for hayfever - you'll soon be heading into the garden, rather than opening the medicine cabinet. Offering a fusion of botanical, practical, cultural and historical information, A Modern Herbal reveals how common herbs are the simple, cleansing way to better health and happiness.

Within these pages, you will learn: * Essential, magical, and medicinal properties of 200 herbs, flowers, trees, and fruits. * Rituals for abundance, cleansing, and connecting with spirits. * Spells to ward against evil, find answers, and protect against self-sabotage. * Potions to open your third eye, bring luck, and promote creativity. * Communication techniques for speaking and listening to plants. * The optimal moon phases and seasons to work with different plants.
