So glad that I checked Alibris before I bought this book. Alibris had the best books and prices. And this book was well worth the money. There's so much info and ideas that I don't want to forget I bought sticky markers so that I can just flip thru to find what I'm looking for. I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to use homemade / organic type remedies for their health, home and garden.
