The 60 herbs and plants have pictures, the common and scientific names, and what parts of the plant is used in medicine (like the flowers, petals, rhizomes or roots, leaves, stems, bark, seeds, berries, the whole plant, the fruit, etc.)
What do you do with the plants? You make the preparations. I loved how the author describes each and details how they are prepared. This is a highly useful book for taking care of ailments and sickness using things you have in the garden or can get in nature. I think it should be in everyone’s library.
