Wayside Medicine

Forgotten Plants and how to use them

Wayside Medicine is packed with practical information on the use of over 50 native plants as sources of herbal medicine.

The countryside abounds with cures which really work and cost a fraction of over-the-counter commercial brands. Have the satisfaction of picking and making your own simple herbal medicine, which has worked for centuries. The authors of Wayside Medicine remind us of a cornucopia of nature’s healing plants which have somehow been forgotten.

Here are clear instructions from a renowned professional herbalist on how to make your own remedies: teas, oils, tinctures, poultices and creams. Stunning colour pictures accompany all the plants, as well as a comprehensive index matching health problems to the right herbal cure.
