    I purchased this book hoping that it would guide me in the creation of herbal remedies — I’d always had a culinary herb garden and wanted to expland my horizons. I wasn’t disappointed — there were many simple recipes for decoctions, poultices, and other non-culinary herb uses. However, some — okay, many! — of the descriptions and instructions were beyond what the simple practicioner or budding herbalist could understand. In the end, I just use the recipes I’ve marked and ignore the rest of the book.

    Excellent beginner’s guide to the world of herbal medicine, May 9, 1998

    This book is written in a humorous, easy to understand and concise format. It is an great way for someone who has never studied herbal medicine before to dip their toes in the water. Ms. Wardwell is very clear about the dangers of using certain herbs. It also has wonderful guidelines on learning how to identify the different types of plants and herbs you’ll be using. Ms. Wardwell also includes several recipes for various tinctures, teas, wines and vinegars to be used. She also offers interesting stories explaining the folklore behind certain plants as well. I can’t recommend this book highly enough to any student of herbalism whether beginner or advanced.

    The Art of Simpling…, November 27, 2002

    Simpling refers to a method of learning herbalism. Choose an herb and explore every facet of it – leaves, petals roots, uses, dangers – inside and out. When you finally “know” that, then and only then, choose a second herb to get to know. This book is an amazing primer for beginners to herbalism. I chafed its simplicity at first, “More herbs! Its too basic!”, until I really began to learn my first herb, catnip. Then I realized how silly I’d been and how very much there was to learn. This book is a bible for beginners!
