Herb book is for anyone who needs to be enlightened about the use of medicinal plants

A herb book that offers advice for medicinal herbs

By TBO.COM | Tbo.comPublished: December 14, 2011

If you are looking for a book on growing and using medicinal herbs in Florida, you will be as glad as I am to see that "Herbs for Life," by Linda W. Mix. R.N. is hot off the press and available for Christmas gifts.

She gives tips on growing and harvesting herbs, making teas, infusions, decoctions and poultices. As a nurse, she tells how herbs relate to pregnancy and how to calculate dosages for children and she tells the dangers and how to avoid them and how to work with your physician.

In the core of the book she gives the details: common and botanical name, parts used, description, cultivation, culinary uses, medicinal uses, others uses and cautions for 91 different medicinal plants with a colored photo of each from trees to ground covers that we can grow and use here. There are 245 pages.

She gives a long list of herbs to treat common ailments. For arthritis and rheumatism, the best are cayenne pepper, garlic, ginger and horseradish. For colds and sore throats, the most efficient are cayenne pepper, Echinacea, elderberry, garlic, ginger, honeysuckle, horseradish, lavender, rose hips, rosemary, sage, thyme and violet, she said.

Because she has done her research in the Florida Panhandle, we might tweak some of the information to suit our milder climate.

If you don't grow your own herbs, you can buy them dried or in capsules at any health food store.
