Price: £14.99 Check Availability

Plants have many qualities which can be harnessed for use in health and beauty products. In biodynamic gardening and agriculture, one of the most important uses of plants is in spray preparations and in compost mixtures, where different plants can bring very different benefits. This beautifully illustrated book looks at the qualities of seven different everyday plants -- yarrow, chamomile, nettle, valerian, oak, dandelion and horsetail -- and shows how their nature and habits relate to the positive characteristics they can bring to biodynamics. It considers, for example, how the nettle with its almost geometrically-precise leaf growth and extensive dessicating root system can bring order to otherwise chaotic soil decay.
