With easy recipes ethnobotanist James Wong shows how to make simple creams‚ salves‚ teas and much‚ much more from the stuff growing in your window box‚ the local garden centre or in the hedgerows. Using the flowers‚ fruit‚ roots‚ trees‚ vegetables and herbs that are all around us James provides preparations to help relieve a whole range of common conditions‚ including acne‚ anxiety‚ cold sores and general aches and pains - plus great ideas for beauty treats such as bath bombs and shampoos.
