A beautifully illustrated, informative, and engaging guide to 100 of the key plants used for medicinal purposes.
Remedies derived from plants are the world's oldest medicines. Used extensively in China, India, and many African countries, herbal medicine has become increasingly popular in the West, along with other holistic and alternative therapies. Botanicum Medicinale offers a modern guide to 100 medicinal plants, featuring beautiful, full-color botanical illustrations and informative, engaging text. Each entry describes the plant's classification and habitat, both traditional and current medicinal uses, and an interesting fact or two. Readers will learn, for example, that cannabis may have been used by Queen Victoria for menstrual pain; and that willow bark contains a chemical similar to aspirin.
