Just because many of us don’t support the practices of big pharmaceutical companies, doesn’t mean that we don’t get sick. At one point or another, everyone turns to medicine to alleviate symptoms of an illness. With these five amazing books, you will be able to create your own herbal medicine cabinet and decrease your dependency on big pharma.

1. The Herbal Medicine Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual by James Green

Making your own herbal preparations isn’t as complicated as many of us think, and The Herbal Medicine Maker’s Handbook makes at-home herbal medicine making easy enough for anyone. This book offers step-by-step instructions on how to prepare your own concoctions and explains why certain steps are necessary if you want to create the ideal herbal medicinal mixture. This book is perfect for families with younger children, as it has a full chapter dedicated to herb jellos, something you probably didn’t even know was possible! James Green is the founder of Simplers Botanical Company and a founding member of the American Herbalists Guild and United Plant Savers. BuyThe Herbal Medicine Maker’s Handbook here.

2. The Earthwise Herbal by Matthew Wood

Written by the expert herbalist Matthew Wood, who has been a practicing in the US for over 25 years and holds a masters degree in herbal medicine, this resource comes in two volumes: the first volume focuses on European plants, or Old World herbs; and the second focuses on North American plants, or New World herbs. Wood does a great job offering detailed descriptions and outlining all of the uses for each herb, even some lesser-known applications. The Earthwise Herbal explains the use of each whole plant (not just “active ingredients”) and how a treatment impacts the whole person. The book describes symptoms and conditions that the plants have been successful in treating, making it an excellent resource to keep at home.

The book offers details about all common cooking herbs and spices and how each one can be used to improve our health. The Herbal Kitchen will give you plenty of ideas on how to creatively incorporate herbs into unique cooking oils, seasonings, honeys, vinegars, dressings, smoothies, pestos, and more. What’s even better is that McBride keeps it simple; her recipes do not require fancy equipment or specialty products. Kami McBride is an herbalist, an instructor of herbal medicine, and the founder of the Living Awareness Institute. Buy The Herbal Kitchen here.
