Learn how to make a Calendula salve to help heal minor wounds, or how an oil made from the buds of Black Cottonwood trees can relax sore muscles. Make a decoction from Wild Licorice to soothe a sore throat or find out how an infusion of Valerian can calm the nerves and improve sleep.

Through many courses, workshops, and extensive research, Jones has compiled this beautiful illustrated catalogue of healing herbs to help readers familiarize themselves with the medicines available in their own backyards. Covering 78 different plants, each with detailed, full-colour illustrations and accessible tips, facts, and recipes, this essential guide makes it easy to benefit from your neighbourhood’s wild offerings. Includes a glossary of terms and a section on how to identify common poisonous plants and what to do if you encounter them.

Brenda Jones is a native of Prince Edward Island and spent the last twelve years roaming the woods and fields gathering and studying the herbs around the Maritimes in order to understand the properties of these amazing plants and to help her with her own health issues. With her background as an artist and illustrator, she began painting each herb in meticulous detail to help in identification, and soon had her own herb garden in her backyard and a cupboard full of tinctures and teas.
