Worried about the contents of off-the-shelf pills and potions?  Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies by Penny Woodward puts you back in control. Grow the herbs you love, then make your own infusions, teas, salves, ointments, and rubs to deal effectively with unsettling, uncomfortable or debilitating ailments.

Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies by Penny Woodward shows you how to use: peppermint tea for indigestion; fennel seed to reduce appetite and promote weight loss; basil wash for itchy skin conditions; sage tea at the first sign of a cold; Penny Woodward adores infused thyme oil for sore muscles and to promote healing; ginger tea for a hangover; lemon balm to lift your mood and ease depression and much, much more.

Penny Woodward writes in her book, Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies about how she loves to grow her own food and medicine, there is something very satisfying in being able to pick and use something from your own garden, says Penny Woodward. Herbs are an essential part of this because not only are they beautiful in the garden, but they also provide flavours for food, simple medicinal remedies and fragrance in the garden and home. For example, there is no need for your clothes to smell of mothballs: use lavender, pennyroyal and tansy instead.

Penny Woodward says why buy expensive imported herb teas when you can pick delicious lemon verbena or peppermint fresh from the garden at no cost. Make delightful and delectable gourmet gifts like thyme salt, rosemary honey and violet scented sugar. Improve your health with sage tea or marigold salve and flavour your food with spicy oregano, picquant chives and aromatic basil, to name but a few.

But herbs also occupy the mind. There is so much history and so many stories associated with herbs. When I’m out in the garden picking parsley it makes me smile to remember that on the Island of Guernsey they have a tradition that babies came from the parsley patch where you dig them up with a golden spade, and Penny Woodward remembers that country people were able to estimate the time by observing when marigold flowers opened and closed. Penny Woodward revels in the thought that there was a time when she could have paid her taxes by using mint.

"So herbs fascinate me because they touch so many facets of my life, so that my garden not only nurtures my body by providing food but also nurtures my spirit by providing food for thought".
