Very helpful and useful book
by Mary Seeland on Jun 21, 2012

My daughter had to get this book for her college class on edible wild plants. It is a very helpful and useful book. I recommend it if you want to know and use the plants around you. We've had fun identifying plants on nature walks.

I live on a Greek island and there is such an abundance of herbs growing wild! However,I don't really know what they all do and how to best use them. Thanks for this fantastic site which I discovered through NGJ! I would like to give all mamas a healthy alternative to baby lotion.

Heat 2 cups of good quality olive oil with a handful of chamomile flowers (dried) and pour in a jar and allow to cool. Store in glass for future use. I use it on the children after their bath by massaging and they warm up in seconds! It also seems to help in healing cuts and abrasions.

Did you know that chamomile actually means apple of the ground in Greek (because of its apple-like smell)?

Thanks once again! ~Arlene
