Book Review: The Herb Book, A Complete Guide to Growing and Using Herbs by Jennie Harding

256 pages. Absolutely beautiful! This book gives a wonderful history of herbs, guide to soil sampling and growing herbs, a full display of recipes using herbs. It also gives many examples of herbs used medicinally or to improve your healthy lifestyle, which herbs affect which body system, and how to make herbal waters and herb-infused essential oils. The last section of the book is an alphabetical list of herbs with pictures, which part to use, and how, culinary and medicinal uses.

Unfortunately, I can’t find this book anywhere online. However, the author has another book with a very similar ISBN, called The Herb Bible: A Complete Guide to Growing and Using Herbs. Since the second half of the title is the same as the book I reviewed, my assumption is that it’s just an updated version. I got my copy at T.J. Maxx for $5. Amazon has The Herb Bible available for $8. It’s also available in Spanish!
