Rachel Jepson Wolf, 1973-

Book - 2018

"In Herbal Adventures, you'll pull on your boots and discover the magical plants that are growing just beyond your door. Explore nearby parks, fields, and forests, then make all sorts of tasty and useful things for your family and friends! Start with a delicious homemade soda, flower petal pancakes, or a soothing balm for cuts and scrapes. Sip herbal tea that's fit for the fairies, craft syrup to quiet your cough, and assemble supplies for your own rough-and-tumble herbal first aid kit. You can also skip the foraging and dive into making the recipes with purchased, dried herbs"--Amazon.com.

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Wolf, founder of botanical skin care company LA¼Sa Organics, offers an enriching collection of plant-based recipes, skin treatments, and craft projects. The featured plants and herbs are chickweed, nettle, elderberry, dandelion, catnip, yarrow, bee balm, plantain, mullein, and white pine. The subjects welcome readers: "Hello! I'm delighted to meet you, new friend. My name is Monarda-or wild bee balm." Among the food recipes are dandelion fritters and chickweed pesto; treatments include yarrow leaf oil for skin abrasions and a "woodland Soak and Steam" for decongestion; project ideas range from apothecary jars to a wood plant press. Wolf advocates for personal reflection and healthy living. Ages 8-12. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
