Giveaway Monday – Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide

This week I am excited to announce the giveaway of a signed copy of Rosemary Gladstar’s new book Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide!

This book is a wonderful starter book for anyone starting out with herbs, even kids and teens! The book is broken down into 4 chapters. The first chapter covers what medicinal herbs are, how they are used, what the benefits of herbal medicine are and starting your own herbal garden.

Chapter two dives into making herbal remedies. She covers what you’ll need to set up your own home pharmacy, the importance of labeling and how to make a variety of remedies including syrups, tinctures, herbal pills, bath items and salves.

The third chapter begins teaching you about herbs beginning with 9 familiar herbs and spices found in your kitchen. She talks about how to grow them and use them and offers recipes for each of the 9 herbs.

In the final chapter she expands the herbal learning into 24 easy to find and safe to use herbs including this month’s herb here at Herbal Roots zine: Oats.

Rosemary was one of my first formal teachers. Being in the midwest, I was unable to attend any formal training on location as there were no herbalists in my area and I did not have the ability to relocate. I discovered Rosemary’s home correspondence course and took it after several years of trying to learn about herbal medicine on my own (before the advent of the internet and all the wonderful resources that are now at our fingertips). Rosemary’s books and teachings are all down to earth, easy to understand and make learning about herbal medicine fun and engaging. My bookshelves are home to many of her books, including this one which my 14 year old daughter loves!

Rosemary Gladstar is a pioneer in the herbal movement and has been called the ‘godmother of American Herbalism’. She began over 35 years ago developing herbal formulas in her herb shop, Rosemary’s Garden in Sonoma County, California. She is the founder of the California School of Herbal Studies, the oldest running herb school in the United States, author of The Science and Art of Herbalism home study course, and is the organizer of the International Herb Symposium and The New England Women’s Herbal Conference held annually in NE. She is the author of numerous herb books including the best seller Herbal Healing for Women, The Storey Book Herbal Healing Series, Herbal Remedies for Vibrant Health, and the Science and Art of Herbalism, an extensive home study course. Rosemary is also the co-founder of Traditional Medicinal Tea Company and did all of the original formulations for the company. She has taught extensively throughout the United States and worldwide at venues as varied as backyard gardens, native villages, garden clubs to universities and hospitals. She has won numerous awards and certificates for her work with medicinal plants, but her greatest reward has been in watching the herbal renaissance soar from its birth and feeling in some small exciting way, a part of it.

Her greatest passion has been the work of United Plant Savers, a non profit organization that Rosemary founded in 1994 and is currently president of. UpS is dedicated to the conservation and cultivation of at risk North American medicinal plants and to preserving botanical sanctuaries across the U.S. to help preserve the land that these precious native species thrive on.

Rosemary lives and works from her home, Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat Center, a 500 acre botanical preserve in central Vermont.

You can show your love for Rosemary by liking her Facebook fan page.

It has 2 springs one one creek on the back pf it also. So the first thing I did. was planted 4 pecan trees. Then my garden which has 60 german pink tomatoes garlic, three rosemary, one basil and thyme and oregano and two lovbage plants. I love all of your books and hope to our base them soon. I was in a bad auto accident, a lady ran a red light and now I have 3 hernia disc along with stenocias. Brain injuries. all my short term is gone. now being ad used to take flax seed, eat red salmons every day. take ginning liquids in a capsule. These items will generate brain cells. was advised will regain short term back but these 3 daily will regernate new brain cells. i’m opened for any advise. ok. Also now I have white spots on the brain which causes migraine headaches. everyday. I even wake up with them. But then I have to calm myself down. I had lots of wonderful lave der growing in herb garden but one of my neighbors complained. If only she had cared how long it takes to grow. Biy guess what when I recover I will be moving and I want have to listen to anyone. Then I can plant many herbs and flowers for my 14 bee houses. thank you, Pamela Farmer

    oh just wanted to make a couple of corrections. im taking liquid pinko. And I was told that I will not ever regain my short term memory but with taking ginkgo, liquid flaxseed and eating red salmon every day that I would regenerate new brain cells. But the only hard part yo tha is I work 3 hours away from home round trip and we don’t have a cafeteria so its tiff planning and preparing the next days meals. Even though I have 30 years with the company im single and cannot afford to retire. I wanted to have an Organic Farm.

    I’m nursing along a tiny patch of Goldenseal that UPS graciously sent to me last year and I’m hoping it survives. My most delightful find in my garden this year is 2 St. John’s wort plants that I have no idea where they came from. Being in my garden is my biggest passion; growing our own herbals is my heart’s calling.

    Hi I’m Finn and I’m 10 years old. I love herbs! Every other Tuesday I have a herb class. The people in my class and I use your zines to learn about different herbs. We have made a lot of the recipes for herb tinctures. My favorite project was candied ginger! My favorite thing about Herbal Roots is learning about new herbs and naming the herbal spirits.

    Just this year, I have discovered rosemary gladstar and her
    Herbal wisdom. A long time ago, one of her students made my son a tonic
    That helped his alopecia grow back. I am now in the process of gathering
    All the materials that i can to study and become an herbalist and healer.
    I have this book on loan from the library, but would love to own a copy.

  145. 145

    What an amazing book! One of my wishes is to learn all about herbs and their medicinal uses :) I have two girls I’d like to teach also. This looks like the perfect book to start of my library of herbal lore!

  146. 146

    Wow, so many entries! Rosemary is such an inspiration! I’m so glad she has a new offering, and especially this one. It isn’t easy to recommend many books to beginners as so many can be overwhelming, or worse, just aren’t that good. Thanks for the giveaway, and keep doing your good work!

    Rosemary Gladstar is one of my heroes. I would love to win this book.

  187. 187

    Funny thing is, I didn’t realize this was a new book since I was trolling around on our public libraries website and found it. Just got it yesterday and started reading it. Loving it so far! She has a really clear way of teaching- I look forward to reading more of her books. I don’t have any at-risk plants growing in my yard, though I ‘d like to grow both Echinacea and goldenseal. Found some trillium on a friends property-what a beautiful and unique flower!!

  188. 188

    We already owe so much to Rosemary Gladstar in our family. Thanks for offering such a wonderful giveaway!

    This book would not only be useful to me, but our family since we homeschool and study botany almost daily! :) We would really like to get into growing our own herbs, and perhaps using them as a natural way of healing ailments. Thank you for the review!

    I adore Rosemary’s work, and have been using her face cream recipe for the past year.

    I am very new to the herbal medicine world but I can tell you that I am SOLD. Just this past weekend I was struck with a tonsil infection and I searched on the net for a natural cure and 3-4 extracts of magic plants and I am a REALLY happy camper once again.
    I have been using some plant medicine for a little while but the vastness of medicines that Pachamama provides for us is endless.Thank you Mother Earth!

    And thank you!

    I’ve recently (finally) been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease + coinfections. I am on journey of healing, started with Western practices and am slowly working toward and integrating complementally alternative medicines. Gardening has been a passion of mine, but have been too sick to enjoy. This spring I was finally able to plant a wee small herb garden. I would love to know how to steer toward planting and using beneficial plants for recovery and health. Thank you for doing this. This is first I have heard of Rosemary. I hope to find any of her publications at our library. Thanks, Martha.

  212. 212

    love Rosemary’s books! And my kids and I have been enjoying your Herbal Zines as part of the Herb Fairies downloads. Thanks for the giveaway!

  213. 213

    My 12 year old son is so interested in learning more about herbs at the moment and I would love nothing better than to have a good resource like this for him to look at …. he is reading all my back issues of herbal magazines. Got fan the flame while it there. :)
