Who doesn’t have at least one childhood memory of Mum or Grandma taking something from the pantry to ease discomfort caused by an everyday mishap? Milk, butter, water, and aloe vera were common treatments for burns. Onions and garlic emerged for all manner of emergencies from toothaches to insect bites. Chamomile tea eased the tummy and helped a teething infant sleep. We trusted them completely and did not question their cures.
Old world remedies are back in favour. After a long time of relying on products from the drugstore people now prefer to go back to natural, time honoured treatments for minor ailments and injuries.
Homemade Health is a collection of home remedies straight from a time, not so long ago, when people went to their garden or kitchen pantry before going to a doctor.
Some tried and true, some quirky, but all based on natural remedies your grandmother knew and most likely used on a regular basis.
- Healing properties of common culinary herbs
- 43 common ailments
- 160+ remedies with recipes
- Common & botanical names
- Harvesting & preserving
- Making herbal remedies at home
The idea behind “Herbology at Home: Homemade Health “ is that it is stepping stone, giving you an insight into the type of remedies that used to be popular instead of their modern synthetic counter parts. Perhaps you already know some of these old world treatments from your own Grandmother, or maybe this book will inspire you to chat to her and learn more about what health measures she grew up with.
