Stevia is a humble plant that has been used for centuries, like many other herbs, to flavor food and to enhance natural well being. One of only a handful of books dedicated to Stevia, Mr. Richard's book has been expanded to include valuable growing instructions garnered from those pioneering with this new herb.

The original issue of this book appeared in 1996 when Stevia was still quite controversial and relatively new to the United States. The current issue of the book encourages the use of the whole leaf and the 20 plus recipes have been adapted to reflect greater use of the fresh and dried herb. Stevia Rebaudiana: Nature's Sweet Secret is a small book chock full of information that should not be missed by those just starting to explore this herb. With such a new plant, there are always so many questions that the questions and answer section at the back of the book is particularly helpful.

Among the recipes, you will find not only an interesting idea for a facial masque (in the chapter titled 'How to Use Stevia'), but also an intriguing recipe for tooth powder located in the main recipe chapter.
