Most accidents happen in the kitchen. But if there are lurking dangers, the average kitchen also contains many handy but often overlooked remedies for treating common ailments or household emergencies. The products for these remedies include herbs and spices, fruit and vegetables, condiments and dressings, oils and vinegars, and many other common and familiar items. In Kitchen Medicine the authors of the successful Hedgerow Medicine now move indoors to describe the wealth of healing and emergency remedies that sit unused and idle in the kitchen. Superb illustrations adorn a lively text. The ingredients are all easily found in the kitchen although in some cases they are exotic in origin (just think of tea, coffee and chocolate).
