BLEMISHES Witch Hazel Gel 200 g witch hazel twigs and (preferably young) leaves (see Resources on page 218) 2 cups (500 ml) hot water 6 packets vegetable gelatin 2 tbsp vodka 1. Place the witch hazel in a pan with the hot water. Over a gentle heat, slowly reduce mixture to a third of its volume until it reaches about 2/3 cup of liquid (this will take about 1 hour). 2. Line a sieve with cheesecloth, then strain the liquid into a mixing bowl. Add the gelatin, stirring to dissolve. Set aside to cool. 3. Once cool, add the vodka and stir well. Pour the gel into a wide-mouthed jar. COLIC Chamomile Syrup 4 handfuls (approx 40 g) German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) flowerheads 4 cups (900 ml) water 2 1/4 cups (450g) sugar or 1 cup (340g) honey 1. In a pan, put the chamomile in the water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low, then cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for about 20 minutes. 2. Reduce the mixture to 3/4 cup (approx 200 ml) by simmering very slowly with the lid off for an additional 20 minutes. 3. Add the sugar and simmer for a few more minutes, stirring until the mixture looks like syrup. Be careful not to boil rapidly; allow it to bubble just a little. 4. Strain through a mesh sieve and then pour it into a sterilized bottle. Seal with a cork; if the syrup ferments, the bottle might explode. USE: For a child, 1 tsp, 3 to 6 times a day. For adults, 2 to 4 tsp, 3 to 6 times a day. Caution: If you are diabetic, do not use. STORAGE: Keeps unopened for up to 1 year. Once opened, keeps for 1 week in the refrigerator.

Grow Your Own Drugs is filled with (mostly) easy to make recipes--all from natural ingredients that are readily available. The book is also beautiful to look through, making it more likely you will feel motivated to actually try many of the recipes. The book covers beauty recipes, and recipes to make you feel better or cure what ails you.

I have been waiting for this book to be available in the States, as a friend from the UK had been raving about it.

I already use (almost) only natural/organic beauty products and drugs, but look forward to replacing some store-bought with home made. Furthermore, I cook from scratch and make most of my cleaning products from scratch. Finally, I do use essential oils and flower essences to help alter my moods and for medicinal purposes--and they work. (For example, lavender is calming, tea tree for blemishes, etc.) So, Grow Your Own Drugs this is a natural step forward for me.

I also like that the author, James Wong, is a scientists who has also studied the properties of plants around the world--this is no hobbyist! (As someone who has dabbled with the property of plants, I recognize many of the cures as those that are well established.) So, I feel comfortable will his advice and recipes.

A quick look shows me that I already have many ingredients necessary to get me started on making several recipes, including one for inflammation, sore throats and for the upcoming season--bee stings.

Highly recommend.

I am the natural freak in our household, and have gone through medical hell for almost 2 years. My Chiropractor recommended this book to us and loaned us his copy to go through. After spending a few hours going through the book, I HAD to have it! The Grow Your Own Drugs Book by James Wong is of Excellent quality. The hard cover binder is very sturdy, the pages are thick, brilliantly colored and in quality and the recipes are wonderful! Cures for the most common ailments to beauty treatments. My oldest and youngest daughters are also more homeopathic and my youngest loves this book for her skin. I've already recommended this to my oldest who makes many holistic items in her home.

My husband, who is following suit, also is highly impressed by the book. Not only for it's craftsmanship, quality hard bound book, but also for its recipes.

Thanks to our Chiropractor for this recommend! Loving James Wong's style too!

This beautiful book is so easy to navigate, understand and use. There are good references for organic products to purchase to make the recipes in the back of the book. The author is great. I wish they'd used a different word in the title rather than Drugs! I bought this after hearing the author talk about the book either on tv or NPR, can't remember which...It's a good book for anyone wanting to make herbal remedies.

I got a lot more from Mr. Wong's recipes from his U Tube appearances. I did like the info on individual herbs.
