This book is special because it is written by a special woman for all women.
Rosemary Gladstar is one of this nation's
leading herbalists. And, while she does not restrict her work to women, she does
know first hand what their trials are.
In this classic book she shares her simple,
yet effective, herbal remedies for all stages of a woman's life. She
relates her vast hands on experience in
her easy to understand directions for making everything from teas to liniments.
Also, included is a chapter that provides details on some of the herbs she uses.
One of our favorite stories comes from this chapter. It is the one she tells about breaking her leg. The
way she heals her
broken bones with comfrey after the medical profession has given up is truly inspiring, as is the entire book.
