We have been on the Amazon best seller for over 5 months now and have currently sold out both there and here. No doubt there are copies in local bookshops if you need further copies. Thank you so so much for all your support, we really appreciate it!
Did you know that daisies infused in oil can be used on bruises? That roses are used for heartache and grieving? Or that elderflower cordial can bring down a temperature? There is also an introduction to each of the body's systems (nervous, respiratory etc.) and which herbs are best for treatments. And of course, the book is peppered with vinegars, balms, oils, tinctures, creams, lotions and syrups to create your own little herbal health kit.
Herbs are quite literally everywhere, it is only our ability to recognise their value that has been lost. Vicky and Kim explore the traditional uses of herbs combined with a modern and scientific understanding for a truly holistic approach so that you can use herbs to treat ailments and improve your general wellbeing.
Vicky and Kim also encourage people to reconnect with their local environment in addition to growing herbs in their gardens or windowsills. An all-encompassing guide for the beginner, The Handmade Apothecary is filled with guidance, useful tips and tried-and-tested recipes that will inspire people to make their own remedies.
