I'm so freaking excited and I just can't hide it! My new book is finally out for you to devour! This book was one of my most dear labor of loves. It is the culmination of a lifetime of learning and all the herbal classes I have taught. If you've ever been to one of my classes, you'll recognize some recipes and some teachings, but they go further in and have some twists and tweaks here and there to take you deeper into your herbal journey. And if you're brand new to herbalism, the book lays a sturdy and accessible foundation to make it easy for your to walk right in. Tons of herbal recipes and Materia medica (an informative herbal glossary) with growing and foraging tips at the end of every chapter, are combined with gorgeous pictures from my apothecary (including my hands in all kinds of interesting poses) from the amazing photographer, Jack Sorokin.
Here's some more info from the back of the book:
I wanted to give you a little free and helpful preview, so here's my elderberry and cough syrup recipes from the book (because I appreciate you so much). Use the elderberry syrup to keep you healthy the rest of the winter and the cough syrup, just in case you need it.
Try the recipes and let me know how it goes and your favorite twists on these recipes.
You can get your own copy of the Herbal Handbook for Homesteaders, and they make great gifts for friends and family, on Amazon here or buy it from me, here on my new website, for a signed copy made out to you or whomever you'd like. If you buy from Amazon, please leave a review, so we can help as many people as possible see it and empower themselves with their own herbal healthcare.
Here's some current reviews to get you excited:
Thanks so much to all of you for your support through the years! This book wouldn't be here if it weren't for your desire to learn.
