Herbs Gone Wild!


Another herbie resource for you! Herbs Gone Wild by Diane Kidman!

Description from Amazon: “Whether it's cold and flu viruses, high blood pressure, or arthritis, herbs have offered reliable relief for centuries. Herbs Gone Wild! (Volume 1 of the Herbs Gone Wild! Series) shares practical remedies in an entertaining and easy-to-read format so you can be your family's home herbalist. Learn what herbs to use for cold and flu symptoms, first aid, general aches and pains, and more. Medicinal teas and tinctures with proper dosages are laid out simply. You'll even learn how to make your own tinctures and salves, saving money and improving your family's health naturally. And with the help of the Herbal Medicine Chest guide at the end of the book, you'll be able to quickly reference over 70 herbs for home use.”

I don’t own a Kindle, but I did download the free Amazon app Whispernet, which is Amazon’s Kindle for the PC, Android, iPod, iPad, Mac, etc.

This book is a practical, easy, fun to read resource for dealing with the day to day stuff, foks. I know you will enjoy it as I do!

Downloading the app gives you the ability to read many ebooks for free or just a nominal charge. My computer is old and I was leery for a long time until I got the nudge from Anke at Herbology! Thanks Anke! It hasn’t bogged down my computer at all and loads quickly:)

Hugs to all who visit Comfrey Cottages xxx

Thanks for sharing the info for the free download..I am waaaay behind on all of tech stuff so it is good to know that Amazon has something like a Kindle for my new ipod Touch that hubby got me for Christmas (shamefully confessing that I have not used yet)so maybe I can get that going...Free is a very good price! xo

I am behind on techy stuff too, Sherri! Nice present from hubby! Laughing out loud as I would not know a thing about it either, and would have to get out the directions! :) Free is exactly my price too;^) You are welcome! I hope you enjoy it! xx
