A distillation of 35 years of experience and experimentation, A Herbal Book of Making and Taking puts together a collection of essential wisdom for the aspiring herbalist. Originally intended as a teaching aid for herbal students, this is a comprehensive guide to the craft of medicine making for the modern herbalist.

Put together by one of the most loved and respected teams in modern herbal medicine, the book is filled with clear, concise instructions and detailed recipes trialled over decades of practice. Christopher Hedley taught hundreds of herbal students in his lifetime and was renowned for his love of medicinal plants and inspirational teaching style. Non Shaw, Christopher’s partner, helped to devise many of the teaching materials and also constantly experimented with new ways to educate others about their beloved plants.

Including exercises and tasks for the interested student, the book covers everything from growing and harvesting herbs to using them in internal and external medicines. From infusions and tinctures to syrups, soups and suppositories, this is a gift to future herbalists drawing on a lifetime of study.
