SO EASY HERBAL
People love the idea of going green and saving money, but sometimes it can all seem more suited to those with a garden in the country and lots of time on their hands. This doesn’t need to be the case, and in “So Easy Herbal” (Ten herbs, how to grow them, use them and save money) Karon Grieve shows readers that you don’t even need a garden to grow herbs and make full use of them both in your kitchen and throughout your home. Karon shows that with just ten herbs in a window box you can create more than 50 different recipes, from teas to soaps, sleep sacks to cooking oils and moth chasers to candles, that are easy to make and save money too.
Herbs are nature’s power tools, and they are so easy to work with. This little book shows just how you can ‘go green’ in a really fun way without breaking the bank, aching the body or over taxing the mind.
Janey Lee Grace (bestselling author of Look Good Naturally – without ditching the lipstick) says “At last, a simple guide to using and enjoying herbs! This is a back to basics guide, and I love the fact that Karon has made it accessible to all, even those without a garden.”
