Library Journal Review

Like her The Complete Medicinal Herbal (LJ 5/15/93), Ody's latest is an eye-pleasing addition to herbal collections. Colorfully illustrated, it traces the use of medicinal herbs from ancient times to the present. The self-help section gives detailed instructions on how to make basic remedies at home from homegrown or purchased herbs. This is followed by a listing of 120 popular herbs and their applications for a variety of conditions. Logos and warning signs alert the reader if a condition calls for professional intervention. No references or bibliography though. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
