REVIEW: 1001 Natural Remedies

1001 Natural Remedies
Have you ever wanted a book that could tell you how to make natural remedies that don’t do damage to your wallet or the planet. Well here at City Hippy we think we may have just found the answer: 1001 Natural Remedies by Laurel Vukovic, its brilliant!

In this astonishing book you will find remedies for almost any ailment or condition you can think of in one of four sections: Health, Beauty, Home & Pet Care.

Here are just a few examples of the topics covered in the book: snoring, colds & flu, IBS, high blood pressure, dry skin, natural shampoos & face creams, herbal baths, mouthwash, aftershaves, natural pest control, stain removal, cleaning, composting, growing fruit & vegetables and everything you need for your pet’s health & wellbeing.

It explains how and why the remedy works, the ingredients you need and how to make the remedy. The ingredients that are recommended in the book are easy to find & use e.g. Lavender oil, vinegar, salt and honey. There is also a very useful plant name list, resources list and Index at the back of the book.

City Hippy likes this book and gives it a rating of 4. You can order this book online via Amazon AND if you buy it via this link then Amazon will give a little financial love back to us here at City Hippy Towers. Costs you nothing extra and helps us at the same time.
