    I like to know what is in each herb I use, and why. This book tells me all I need to know! Bulk Herb Store offers some fabulous premixes, my favorite being the PMS Cramp Tincture, but most blends I still prefer to make myself based on specific need. This book is a very helpful guide to putting together blends based on nutritional need, and I pair it with Practical Herbalism for blending herbs based on their actions.


    From our Mailbox

    Hello, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the service you provide with your herb company. My husband now tells everyone the benefits of herbs. This strikes a lot of people as funny, because my husband is a big ole' country boy type who is a logger. Yes, I can remember the day he turned up his nose at them, but with God's help, he now looks at them differently. Thank you for the company. I share it with anyone who asks about herbs.

    We also have found help for our deacon at church who suffers from chronic gout. I had read herbal teas could help with this, so he tried Peppermint tea. He has found some relief for his gout, and tells everyone about it. That's the reason I order so much peppermint. So, once again, I thank you for your service, and I pray that the Lord will continue to help you in this service. Thank you.

    PS. The How to Herb Book and The ABC Herbal have been wonderful helps to me.
