Welcome to Plant Essentials!
Learn all about holistic healing and natural herbology through Adaptogens, a historic account, comprehensive directory, and cookbook on using herbal remedies to your advantage.
Harness the ancient healing power of adaptogens: herbs, roots, and other medicinal plants that help the body function better than its natural capacity. Learn all you need to know about 50 of the most common healing herbs and how to make delicious, nutrient-dense recipes to have you functioning at a higher frequency.
The modern world is loud, messy, and oh so stressful. Whether the stressor is environmental (originating in your body) or psychological (triggering your fight-or-flight response and causing the release of cortisol), adaptogens are packed with amino acids and/or vitamins that help manage the harmful effects stress has on the body. While relatively new to the western world, adaptogens are at the root of many things in western medicine. Did you know that aspirin comes from willow bark?
Adaptogens is divided into three sections. The first is an easy-to-understand breakdown of the history and science behind these wonderful herbal remedies. The second, and the bulk of the book, is the adaptogen A-Z directory so that you can figure out which products and powders will best work with the stresses of your life. The last is a slew of delicious and nutritious recipes.
Nature has gifted us with many plants across the globe that are talented at growing in stressful environments. They pass on this talent once consumed.
