Everyone knows that walking in the garden while inhaling aromas sweet and pungent, and gazing at beautiful trees, shrubs, and flowers, can have a soothing effect on the soul. But did you know that you can extract nature's healing bounty from these plants? Here are remedies and recipes for everything from cramps to flu, from muscle aches to acne -- and you can find all the main ingredients in your own garden! Individual sections cover trees, hedges and shrubs, flower borders, vegetables, herbs, weeds and wildflowers, balcony and patio gardens, and preparations. Brew mate tea from holly leaves to boost your energy; use the ordinary apple as a detoxicant for arthritis; and apply smooth magnolia cream to the skin as a moisturizer Rosemary ointment helps heal scratches. The common elder yields a virtual treasure chest its flowers and berries give us wine, jelly, restorative infusions, and creams. And catnip can benefit more than your pet; it can also relieve a child's flu symptoms! Whip up leek poultices, a comfrey treatment for fractures, parsley jelly for digestion, and a high-iron nettle for anemia. Every tried-and-true remedy is an all-natural, safe way to heal!
