Herbal Medicine From the Heart of the Earth, by Sharol Tilgner
Dr. Sharol Tilgner is an accomplished herbalist and naturopathic physician working in Oregon.
Well-written, thorough and highly practical presentation of the practice of current western herbalism. A reference of the 170 most commonly used herbs. Sharol has organized herbs and formulas according to body systems. She also has detailed description of medicine making including the usual tinctures, oils and salves but also dry plant extracts, suppositories and clear calculations for measuring the potency and strength of the final product. This latter bit is hardly available in any western herb book. She has a detailed description and chart of dosing and a full two pages listing the best ratio of alcohol to water for making tinctures and extracts. There is a chart for harvesting various plants, and dictionaries of herbal properties, actions and preparations.
‘One of the best investments anyone who has a serious interest in herbal medicine can make in a book.’ – Michael Tierra
