Rosemary Gladstar was my first herbal teacher and remains precious to me. Her books are among the first I recommend to everyone, including aspiring herbalists. She writes clearly and in a way that encourages the reader to be confident in using new skills. Her recipes, which she shares generously, are really effective formulas.
For centuries women have turned to herbs to cope with a wide variety of health problems and conditions. Comprehensive and easy to use, Herbal Healing for Women explains how to create remedies, including teas, tinctures, salves, and ointments for the common disorders that arise in the different cycles of a woman’s life. Covering adolescence, childbearing years, pregnancy and childbirth, and menopause, Rosemary Gladstar teaches us how herbs can be used to treat the symptoms of conditions such as acne, pms, morning sickness, and hot flashes.
