Product Description

THE HERBAL MEDICINE-MAKER''¬?S HANDBOOK is an entertaining compilation of natural home remedies written by one of the great herbalists, James Green, author of the best-selling THE MALE HERBAL. Writing in a delightfully personal and down-home style, Green emphasizes the point that herbal medicine-making is fundamental to every culture on the planet and is accessible to everyone. So, first head into the garden and learn to harvest your own herbs, and then head into your kitchen and whip up a batch of raspberry cough syrup, or perhaps a soothing elixir to erase the daily stresses of modern life.

About the Author

JAMES GREEN is the founder of Simplers Botanical Company and is a professional founding member of the American Herbalists Guild and United Plant Savers. He conducts workshops on male health and herbal medicine making throughout the United States and Canada. He lives in Ocean Beach, California.

I have struggled to read this book. I was under the impression that it would guide me in the art of medicine-making, but James Green wastes time telling me when and how to be spiritual instead. I have no problem with being spiritual, it''s just that I am perfectly capable of making those decisions myself. I wonder how much an editor was involved with the book. I keep thinking how easy it would be to black out the condescending useless words so the next person could come along and see about half medicine-making information, and half black sharpie.

I bought 4 books thinking this would be my favorite. I wanted straight forward information. I got exhausted tip toeing through the tulips with this guy literally- to glean the information in this book. I''m trying to be objective. I keep editing myself. This was a waste of money for me. I don''t have time to sift to find useful information.

First I want to say that I really loved this book.
I started working on this book in August 2016, it is now January 2017. It covers a vast amount of information. I wanted to make sure that I covered everything completely, I will now start re- read it again. The book is highlighted, underlined, notes written all over the book. This is more a text book, than a simple herb book. I highly recommend this if you are serious about being am herbalist.
This is one book I will use over and over. Love it.

I bought this book expecting a book about herbal medicine. What I got was an unreadable mess that seemed like a middle schooler''s attempt to use every fancy word in the dictionary to sound smart, but failing to do so.

At one point, the author implies that a sick person can walk through a garden and that is actually better at healing them than taking herbs internally or using modern Western medicine.

Steer clear of this book. There are far better books on the subject out there, and that are written in such a way that you don''t feel like you''re being preached at by an English college professor on an acid trip.

All I can say is this author speaks to me. I am not what most people would think of as the type to get "into" herbal healing (leave it at that). I have been working and healing with herbs for about a year or so and consider it a calling ("hobby" to those who ask). There are some great books out there and one should always have a few on hand to reference. However, similar to Rosemary Gladstar, this author speaks to the inner healer - the person who is magically drawn to plants and their divine healing properties, but may not know why. He inspires a person to want to understand the magic AND the science. If you want a "list" of herbs and their medicinal properties, this isn''t it, it is SO much more. I am not into worshiping Gaia or dancing under the moonlight to celebrate life''s offerings, but he is and that''s just fine with me. It will be fine too with anyone who chooses to include this wonderful book in their herbal reference library.

If you have ever wondered about using and making herbal remedies, this book is for you! James is a wonderful writer. You feel like you are talking to an old friend. Yes, he is an old hippie type, but so congenial. He has written this book so it is easy to read and understand. He walks you through everything you need to know. He explains the many different ways herbs have been used throughout history, what forms work the best and which extraction methods work for each type of plant. He keeps the list of herbs to a manageable level. You don''t need to buy a bunch of different herbs for the formulas. And some you can grow yourself and use directly from the garden. This is a must have for anyone just getting into the practice of home herbal medicines.

First, do not mistake this as an Herbal or a formulary of herbal recipes because while this book may list some information about some herbs and their uses it does not get specific into the herbs themselves. This book, however, does cover an extensive course on the basics of general herbal medicine making and an in depth course on the consideration and instruction for specific methods of herbal therapies and applications.

I personally like this book because I specialize in herbal liquid extracts and infusions, mainly tinctures, glycerites, and oils. This book extensively covers these forms of herbal therapy and application in great detail, not just on the basic components of making a tincture or other form of herbal medicine but it discusses the scientific and biological processes behind them. I especially like that he discusses tincturing by maceration and by percolation and furthermore includes a whole independent section on Solvents as well; as they can be tricky to choose from and formulate when making your own formulas and figuring out each herbs solubility factors and weigh which solvents should be used and in what quantity and ratio. In conclusion this book is another must have for any truly dedicated naturopathic medicinal herbalist and includes more valuable information one could hope for and expect especially in comparison to the books price.

You want be disappointed in this book no matter how far along you are in making your own tinctures.

Good facts

Excellent manual. A bit too verbose with its West Coast Mother Nature sermonising but can’t fault the factual stuff. Don’t buy on Kindle... too difficult to flip through

A good book recommended by a herbalist but didnt give me the recipes I was looking for, more about advanced procedures in my opinion not really for a beginner.
