The Herbal Healing Handbook

Plants, Essential Oils and Aromatherapy as Natural Remedies

The Herbal Healing Handbook is a spiritual guidebook for using plants, essential oils, aromatherapy, and other natural elements to treat ailments and help prevent illness.

Heal the natural way. In her latest work, bestselling author Cerridwen Greenleaf shares the healing power of plants, roots, herbs, essential oils, aromatherapy, and all things natural remedies. If you are tired of automatically turning to chemical treatments, or just want to have more plant-based care options, The Herbal Healing Handbook is the book for you. It is a must have for those seeking health solutions that work from Mother Earth.

Draw upon ancient knowledge. While health care debates rage all around us, one way to take good care of yourself and your loved ones is with the “kitchen cabinet cures” in this book. When our great grandmothers and the elders who came before us needed to attend to the cuts, bruises, colds, flu’s, fevers and other illnesses their family suffered, they didn't have a corner drugstore. Instead these wise women relied on simple wisdom, common sense, and pantries well stocked with herbal remedies. These preparations were made from plants that grew in the kitchen garden or wild weeds gathered outside. The Herbal Healing Handbook combines the wisdom of our elders with a modern kitchen herbalist’s sensibility.

In The Herbal Healing Handbook you will:

  • Learn about natural remedies that you can make yourself
  • Treat inflammation and pain
  • Build energy
  • Improve your attitude and mindset
  • Gain key knowledge about plants, roots, essential oils and aromatherapy

The Random Acts of Kindness movement is born.

Despite the hurly-burly of our busy lives, we can all make a beneficial impact on the environment, throughout out local community, and within our own hearts. This book of inspired ideas and good deeds conveys how “the power of one”―that is, you―can make a better world, starting today!

Sometimes the smallest gesture makes the biggest difference. This little book shows how to start―with the small, with the particular, with the individual―in order to make a difference in the world.

Random Acts of Kindness features:

  • True stories about acts of kindness and generosity of spirit
  • Suggestions for living more compassionately
