Herbs have been used by humans for many thousands of years. Over the course of this time, our understanding of their effects on our bodies has been learnt - initially through trial and error, and observations, then later through clinical trials. Today our knowledge of plants has given rise to a growing industry in botanical medicine.

The Medicinal Herbs ebook is a practical guide on the herbs that can be used to remedy conditions in the human body. This ebook is a fascinating read that looks into the chemicals in herbs and their effects on the body. There is a glossary of terms that helps you understand what the medical terms mean and illustrations and detailed herb descriptions help you identify the plants.

This ebook also looks at ways in which herbs can be used for medicinal purposes and how you can prepare herbs for use in this purpose, such as teas, decoction and ointments.  The majority of this ebook covers a thorough directory of medicinal herbs and looks at the herbs origin, appearance, culture, chemistry, the parts used, what the herb can be used for and the herb’s properties. The conclusion of this ebook helps you think about some different ideas for starting a business using medicinal herbs.
