Overview

The New Complete Book of Herbs, Spices, and Condiments offers a unique way of looking at seasonings. It presents them as individual health products, each complete with the same types of nutritional, chemical, and medical benefits and side effects found in any vitamin supplement, prescription drug, or over-the-counter product. Each entry begins with an easy-to-read chart that gives the basics about the plant from which the seasoning comes, the botanical name, common names, native habitats, medicinal properties, and other fascinating facts about the herb, spice, or condiment
