With most of our important drugs derived from plants including willow (used to procure aspirin) to periwinkle (used in chemotherapy to treat lymphoma) many common garden plants have provided cures in modern medicine.

The Gardener's Companion to Medicinal Plants features an A-Z of over 270 lifesaving plants and 24 practical projects for making homemade teas, oils, tinctures and creams. With step-by-step photographs and instructions, learn how to heal yourself with these homemade remedies through gardening.

Filled with beautiful botanical illustrations, this book is the perfect reference book for anyone wanting to learn more about the benefits of medicinal plants.
