Northern Plant Lore: A Field Guide to the Ancestral Use of Plants in Northern Europe – FREE


Northern Plant Lore: A Field Guide to the Ancestral Use of Plants in Northern Europe
Eoghan Odinsson
Unrated new release nonfiction

Over a thousand years ago the Anglo-Saxons used willow bark to treat headaches; modern pharmaceutical companies use the same basic ingredient – salicin.

They boiled the bark in holy water and added a few other unnecessary ingredients, but they had a basic treatment that worked a millennia ago! And they called this the Dark Ages?

Northern Plant Lore explores the plants and herbs used by the Anglo Saxons for medicinal purposes, and compares them to the list of plant and herbs proven effective by modern medical science. Not every plant they used worked, but Northern Plant Lore will show you which ones did, and how you can use them today.
