Home Remedy Reference Guides

The first thing that anyone who wants to get into home remedies needs to do is get one or two good reference books.  Home remedies, herbs and natural substances, are like any other treatment and may have reactions with each other or standard medications you may be taking.  Be sure to study up on any herbs or other plants you may want to try using.  Below is a list of reference guides that I would recommend for everyone whether you are starting out or a long time herbal healer.
