Herbs are quite literally everywhere - it is only our ability to recognise their value that has been lost. Vicky Chown and Kim Walker explore the traditional uses of herbs combined with a modern and scientific understanding for a truly holistic approach so that you can use herbs to treat ailments and improve your general well-being.

Vicky and Kim also encourage people to reconnect with their local environment in addition to growing herbs in their gardens or windowsills. An all-encompassing guide for the beginner, The Handmade Apothecary is filled with guidance, useful tips and tried-and-tested recipes that will inspire people to make their own remedies.
