“Just a few generations ago women kept “still-rooms” and compiled “still-room books” with botanical remedies, recipes, and important facts about plants.  These books were essential to the health and wellbeing of the family, the extended family, and the community.  They included not only recipes for cosmetic s and cleaning products, but also medicines that kept the family well.  The Backyard Herbal Apothecary fulfills the same essential service in today’s home, offering important information that allows the reader to turn a root, a leaf, or a wayside poppy into healing remedies, soothing balms, and tranquil tea blends.  Foragers, gardeners, and natural health advocates need this book in their home library to guide their seasonal DIY projects.” – Chris Dalziel, author of The Beeswax Workshop

“With this book, Devon Young has created just the resource my bookshelf is lacking. Delving into herbalism can feel overwhelming, but its readily accessible information is just what I need to feel more confident foraging for and using wild medicinals. The author offers an extensive collection of plant materials to consider for the herbal medicine chest, each with details on where it grows and how to identify it, what it’s used for, and the best preparation methods. The insights offered in this beautiful book will educate, of course, but also inspire readers to embrace a more holistic approach to healing.” – Kris Bordessa founder of
