Herbal Giveaway: Signed Copy of Matthew Wood's Book of Herbal Wisdom

Last month I picked up a new copy of one of my favorite herbals which is herbalist Matthew Wood's The Book of Herbal Wisdom.  Within three days of receiving the new book, I found my other copy, which I had put away safely on one of my hard to reach book shelves.  I think this copy must be meant for someone else, so I am giving it away on our blog.  It was signed by the author, and was only used once by me to review the chapter on Teasel, the medicinal plant which is pictured below.  The root of Teasel, Dipsacus fullonum, syn. D. sylvestris, has been used successfully by Matthew Wood and other herbalists to resolve cases of Lyme Disease.  I will share a DIY Lyme extract recipe that I made in a later blog post. 

Some of the other medicinal plants discussed in this book include some of my favorites: Calendula, Yarrow, Chamomile, Burdock, Goldenrod.  Over 40 plants are discussed in detail.  I enjoy this book so much because Matthew discusses examples of using these herbs successfully with different clients.  I have used his suggested allergy formula from this book with much success.  

If you are a US resident over age 18, and yo would like to win this book, you may enter below using the rafflecopter widget.
