Save thousands of dollars on cleaners, cosmetics, and health care by simply using herbs from the store or garden when you discover their secrets in Jude's Herbal Home Remedies. Written by Jude C. Williams, a master Herbalist with a degree from Dominion Herbal College, this book gives you all you need to know to use the natural plants around you to improve your life.

It wasn't always the case that people would go to a store to buy beauty supplies, medicines, or polish for their furniture. Instead, they would go into their gardens and get what they need from gracious mother nature. This book is the result of Williams' twenty-five years of research, thousands of years of herbal history, and the latest in scientific research.

Everything you need to know to use the herbs can be found in this book. You will learn the general principles of herbs and even see diagrams of traditional herb gardens where thirty-five different herbs were grown. You will learn how to harvest herbs if you grow them and the techniques of preparing an herbal medicine chest. For this you will need to know the secrets of preparing salves, tinctures, syrups, capsules, and teas. The explanation of how to do all this is revealed in Jude's Herbal Home Remedies.

Once you know these easy techniques, you are ready to work with the herbs and improve your life. The book is divided into several section to make it easy to determine exactly what you need.
