    This review is from: Grow Your Own Drugs: Easy Recipes for Natural Remedies and Beauty Fixes (Hardcover)

    Grow Your Own Drugs is filled with (mostly) easy to make recipes–all from natural ingredients that are readily available. The book is also beautiful to look through, making it more likely you will feel motivated to actually try many of the recipes. The book covers beauty recipes, and recipes to make you feel better or cure what ails you.

    I have been waiting for this book to be available in the States, as a friend from the UK had been raving about it.

    I already use (almost) only natural/organic beauty products and drugs, but look forward to replacing some store-bought with home made. Furthermore, I cook from scratch and make most of my cleaning products from scratch. Finally, I do use essential oils and flower essences to help alter my moods and for medicinal purposes–and they work. (For example, lavender is calming, tea tree for blemishes, etc.) So, Grow Your Own Drugs this is a natural step forward for me.

    I also like that the author, James Wong, is a scientists who has also studied the properties of plants around the world–this is no hobbyist! (As someone who has dabbled with the property of plants, I recognize many of the cures as those that are well established.) So, I feel comfortable will his advice and recipes.

    A quick look shows me that I already have many ingredients necessary to get me started on making several recipes, including one for inflammation, sore throats and for the upcoming season–bee stings.

    Highly recommend.

    Author of HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT.

    The sore throat recipe actually works–and really well!, March 25, 2010

    This review is from: Grow Your Own Drugs: Easy Recipes for Natural Remedies and Beauty Fixes (Hardcover)

    I’m always skeptical about home remedies, but at the same time want to use products that are locally-grown, homemade, and not infused with unnatural chemicals. So I decided to give this book a try. Not only is it GORGEOUS–the photography is really phenomenal–and not only is the author gorgeous too (and British! His BBC show is on Youtube and he’s got that great accent!) but the recipes really, truly work! I made the sore throat recipe and found it instantly soothing. And for fun I tried out the bath bomb, which was much simpler than I thought it would be and worth it for the nice soak!

    Would recommend in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to take care of their body the natural way.
