Recommend!! May 7, 2008
This book is packed full of information on herbs and many health issues herbs can help....single herbs, multiple herb combinations suggested for specific problems...Highly recommended!!
This is my second purchase Jan 31, 2008
I bought this book when it was first published in the 90's. I haven't found another book that is as good. I have used it so much that my old one is falling apart. I have to buy a new one because I need the book. The book is 402 pages long. There may be a few trendy herbs that are aren't mentioned but not many. This book lists the bodily influences each herb has on the body and gives a long list for the uses of each herb. Bold lettering is used to indicate when an herb has a profound, SIGNIFICANT effectiveness .This book has helped me a lot. The only drawback to the contents is I would like to know what vitamins are in each herb etc. I have used this book to treat numerous ailments.
The Little Herb Encyclopedia...okay, not the greatest. Mar 17, 2006
There are many herbs not in the book. Explanations are a bit on the hazy side. No ideas on how to use the herbs...BUT...it's great for what it does have, tells of many things each herb can be used for. Just wish it were more complete! With all this, I still have had no thought of returning the one I bought for myself at the store. Bought one from this site for a friend who works much with herbs, etc., as she said it was on her wish list. p.s...get the spiral bound one...much easier to use.
Should be called an herb bible Mar 1, 2004
Every time you read it, you find something you didn't see before.
I have dozens of herb books. It never fails to amaze me how thorough this book is. If you want info on an obscure herb or obscure info on a common herb, this is the book for you.
I'm glad to see there is a spiral bound version. I'm buying a second copy to have it in spiral. It is literally a book you can study from and want to take notes from. The spiral version will make that easier.
WONDERFUL REFERENCE OF INDIVIDUAL HERBS Sep 17, 2003
This book is absolutely the best one I have seen when it comes to being thorough for the different uses of each herb. It has listings of primary and secondary conditions affected by the herbs, after a write up of usually close to a page on each one. In the write up it elaborates on many of the uses, and often gives historical uses. I find it a vital reference guide and refer to it VERY often!!! Is easy to understand, contains warnings about the herbs that need it, and is really the most informative guide to herbal usage.
I bought the new, soft paperbound book, and it fell apart on the way home from the store. After using it for a while I decided it was invaluable and ordered (YEAY!) a spiral bound book from this site.com. I definitely recommend the spiral bound as the way to go if you can get it! But even if you get a paperbound copy and it should fall apart, it is worth 50 times the money, and worth the extra care you need to take of the book. (Hopefully everyone is not as physically "hard" on books as I am!)
