Violet-Flower-Sore-Throat-Syrup

This tasty violet syrup calms sore throat and coughs. I am making it this week with my own violets. Delightful! Herbal Syrups are a wonderful easy DIY way to capture healing goodness! You’ll find the recipe on page 205.

Jan explains it all from A to  Z ~ with an entire chapter dedicated to detailed easy-to-follow explanations which are well-written and informative. There’s a section which lists common herbs and the corresponding recipes in the book. I got excited reading this part ~ Inspired I am ~ today I’m making a wonderful hair rinse with some nettles, harvested yesterday!  I am cooking up the nettles for lunch, drying some for tea, and now.. I am making a hair rinse with the rest!

Jan was inspired to write this book for many reasons. One that she mentions? To make good use of the plants around us; in our gardens or foraged. We don’t need to throw them away, but can honour them with another helpful life-enhancing idea. I would have fed my compost pile with the remaining nettle, but instead, I am treating myself to a ‘hair stimulating’ herbal hair rinse.

Ch3-Regenerating-Rose-Balm2

Don’t you love ROSES? I do. Rose medicine is a favourite topic. This regenerating Rose Balm is on my list!

I’ve been a passionate HerbGal for a very long time. I owned a shop where I made 100s of products ~ all from herbs, natural ingredients, essential oils ~ the original Studio Botanica. Jan’s book is filled with some of my favourite classics from local herbal traditions and has so many new ones, with fabulous pictures, that I am motivated and thinking of new projects ~ new ways to look after myself and my family in these times when EVERYTHING we breathe in, put on, eat and drink ~~ is more important than ever before. You will want to buy this book ~ or maybe you’ll be the lucky winner!! Can’t wait for the ‘draw’ ? Buy your very own copy here!
