Best Audience: Beginning Herbalists and Folk who’d love to explore Healing through Diet and Natural Living
When Rosalee and the folks at Learning Herbs asked The Practical Herbalist team to participate in the launch of Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies That Heal, I was thrilled. I’d already done Rosalee’s course and loved her teaching style. I was hoping that Alchemy of Herbs would live up to the bar she’d set with Taste of Herbs.
Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies That Heal by Rosalee de la Foret is exactly the book I wish I’d had when I was first learning about herbs. Her style is so easy and approachable. I love that she intermingles energetics with science-based information on each of the plants she covers. One of the aspects I love about Alchemy of herbs is that she simplifies the concepts of energy, constitution, and taste brilliantly. For beginning herbalists, it can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming to figure out which of the many exciting plants we study to use. Beginning herbalism can be a little like hitting a moving target…until you start to find tools to narrow your choices.
For the Family Herbalist, Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies That Heal offers a few solid and simple tools for choosing and using herbs at home. I love her recipes, too. If you’re looking for a few great ways to incorporate plant-based nutrition and medicines into your home, Rosalee’s is the book for you!
The Bottom Line: Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies That Heal by Rosalee de la Foret has earned a permanent place on my bookshelf.
