Now, a master herbalist with more than twenty-five years of experience who is also a mother of two shares her natural approach to wellness. Inside you'll find easy holistic therapies for common childhood injuries and ailments, and learn:

how a banana can remove a splinter

which herbs help reduce fever

how an onion helps both bruises and earaches

why garlic is nature's antibiotic

how a spritz of rosemary hair juice prevents lice

why peppermint tea relieves both headaches and stomachaches

how gargling with lemon juice and table salt can ease a sore throat

why ginger root can ease motion sickness

and many other intelligent uses of foods and therapeutic plants -- nature's own medicine -- to alleviate discomforts.
