One of my three favorite herb books!
by Lynda on Oct 4, 2014

I've really benefitted from reading this book and I find myself referring back to it over and over again. My 13 and 11 year old girls have even enjoyed it. It makes a great herbal-health introduction book for anyone. I'd like to find more of Gladstar's books.

Wonderful book

I love this book, it made my life so much easier. Rosemary Gladstar's show her love for herbs in every single line. Amazing!!!

preventative book rather than curative
by Anonymous on Aug 30, 2013

I love this book. It's more of a cosy read than a quick reference guide, I find, but Rosemary writes in such a gentle way about using herbs that it's quite fun to curl up with a mug of tea and this book. While there are a lot of recipes for curing common ailments, this most addresses using herbs and recipes for staying healthy - as the title describes, for vibrant health. If you're looking for a guide to many treatments for illnesses, I recommend the A-Z reference book, Prescription For Natural Healing. But Rosemary is great for daily use.

Thank you! Thank you! I placed my order on Wednesday and it was here Saturday. I had been out of my favorite tea, Rise and Shine, for a little while and really missed it. I just love this tea. I have yet to kick the coffee habit, but after a cup or two of coffee in the morning I make a pot of Rise and Shine right in my coffee pot. I drink it through out the day and make another smaller pot in the evening, using the same tea leaves for my husband and I to enjoy after dinner. I even make an altered version of the tea for my children. I leave out the Ginkgo and Bilberry and add Cinnamon and sweeten with raw honey. They call it cinnamon tea. I call it Rise and Shine for kids. Even my two year old asks for tea in her sippy cup. And whenever they've been exposed to an illness, I just add a spoonful of Echinacea to the pot. In warmer weather I make the pot the same but allow it to cool to make iced tea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea.
