Description

Nature's remedies are all around, if you know what to look for. In Medicinal Herbs of Eastern Canada, award-winning author and artist Brenda Jones offers detailed advice on how to identify, collect, and prepare a variety of local wild herbs. Learn how to make an infusion of goldenrod to treat a nasty cough, or a lemon balm tincture to help you sleep.

Through many workshops, extensive research, and the help of Indigenous communities, Jones compiled this beautiful illustrated catalogue of healing herbs to help readers familiarize themselves with the medicines available in their own backyards. Covering 72 different plants, each with detailed, full-colour illustrations and accessible tips, facts, and recipes, this essential guide makes it easy to benefit from your neighbourhood's wild offerings. Includes a glossary of terms and a comprehensive index.

Contributor Notes

Brenda Jones is a native of Prince Edward Island and spent the last twelve years roaming the woods and fields gathering and studying the herbs around the Maritimes in order to understand the properties of these amazing plants and to help her with her own health issues. With her background as an artist and illustrator, she began painting each herb in meticulous detail to help in identification, and soon had her own herb garden in her backyard and a cupboard full of tinctures and teas.
