“Full of brilliant ideas” for harnessing the natural goodness of plants through the seasons for self-care and gift-giving (Kirstie Allsopp, from the foreword).
This is a source book for mind, body, and soul, as well as a testament to the natural power and beauty of herbs. Overflowing with ideas from the pretty to the practical, it contains many projects that use the gardener’s bounty through the seasons.
Our gardens contain much of what we need to keep mild ailments at bay, and it’s fun giving it a go—instead of nuking the dandelions in your lawn, pick them and use them. Or plant marigolds, not just for their cheerful color, but to make wonderful skin oils with them. You’ll find recipes for invigorating body scrubs, relaxing bath salts, and just-plain-fun bath bombs—as well as tips for what to look for in your garden or home that can be used to make health-giving tonics or soothing balms. Take a leaf out of the wisdom of country lore—new research shows much of what they were talking about made sense—and put it to use for mild ailments.
Whether you want to give something practical for the home, indulgent to enjoy at bath-time, or to complement a delicious dinner, there is a present that will suit everyone.
