Author Devon Young-founder of the natural living blog Nitty Gritty Life-educates readers on how to make tried-and-true remedies using herbs that grow naturally in their backyards or neighborhoods. Readers learn how to safely identify and forage for healing plants growing wild, or how to cultivate them easily in their yard (or even on a windowsill or balcony).

Herbalism has gained popularity in recent years as more people turn to alternative and holistic health methods for natural healing-sans medications-with a hands-on approach. Those just starting out and experienced herbalists alike will enjoy learning about the healing properties of commonly found herbs such as burdock, comfrey, rosemary, dill, milk thistle, chickweed, dandelion and nettle. Each herb features a recipe that readers can make right away, such as Working Hands Salve, Antioxidant Facial Serum, Dandelion Digestive Bitters, Pleasant Dreams Incense and Gut Healer Tea. Readers become empowered to formulate their own home remedies safely and confidently to hone their practice. This book covers 50 herbs with 50 recipes and more than 100 photos.
