The book leads off with tips on how to obtain or grow the herbals that you will need, noting the six basic categories of ingredients. In the next part of the book are the recipes, with each recipe including clearly written instructions, and the equipment, prep time, yield, storage requirements, and the application methods. (All recipes are intended for topical use only, not to be consumed.) There's something here for just about everyone, from "A" for Alopecia (balding) to "W" for Women's intimate concerns (menstrual cramps and hot flashes), and a whole lot of other ailments.
