Create an organic medicine cabinet in your own backyard using the medicinal powers of herbs, vegetables and fruits that have been revered for thousands of years.

In addition to the compendium of more than 60 medicinal plants and their uses, there’s basic techniques for growing and caring for them too.

Learn how to gather, dry and take your own medicine – in teas, tinctures, compresses, poultices and more.

Discover how echinacea can fight colds and boost the immune system, cabbage could ward off cancer and how thyme-oil is used as an antiseptic and ginger compresses used for cramps. There's also instructions for how to make an arthritis-relieving potato poultice and a libido-boosting damiana tea.

Whether you have a small vegie patch - or the space to create one - or room in a courtyard or balcony for a few pots, this book can help you to plant your way to good health!
