Backyard Medicine

Julie Bruton-Seal & Matthew Seal


In this North American edition subtitled: Harvest and Make Your Own Herbal Remedies, 50 common hedgerow and backyard plants are investigated for their alternative medicine and natural healing abilities. This book looks at 120 natural healing remedies for everyday ailments like muscle tension, cough, insomnia, acne, sore throat, aches and pains -- all gathered from familiar wild plants such as plantain, raspberries, stinging nettle, and red clover and created at home. Imagine serving chickweed pesto, herbal teas, or hawthorn berry leathers with ingredients from the “back forty.” Color photographs throughout make identifications easier. Help your family feel better and save money at the same time.
