Herbal remedies that we can make at home

I am very curious about herbs and enjoy planting a variety at home. However, I don't feel I take full advantage of the herb crops as much as I should so I referred to this home herbal book, which gave me some tips on how to use the herbs. 
This book has a wealth of knowledge on how to grow herbs, harvest, how to safely use and cautions about using it. It is easy to refer to this book, as the content is separated by either the herbs used to heal from the inside through food we can make or herb used to heal from the outside such as skin treatments. Herbal remedies have helped many generations, but this knowledge was almost lost. Now, as people recognize the benefits of this holistic natural approach, treating the body with herbs in coming back.
Here are some of the things I learned from this book.
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder dissolved in 1 cup of water, juice or milk to help with arthritic problems and eczema.
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper in half a tumbler of warm water for sore throats.
