Comments: This is an excellent book! Great basic information for tinctures, salves, understanding plants and herbs.The folk stories add a wonderful touch and bring home the history of herbal healing. The facts are laid out simple and straight without talking down to the reader. Bound to become a well worn reference book in the library of any one with an interest in herbalism.

Comments: Get this book - it is very good and offers some useful info such as making herbal vinegars and wines. It also stresses safety and simpling (using and getting familiar with one herb at a time before mxing herbs). Excellent resource for all levels of experience!

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
