Clinical herbalist and herbal medicine teacher Groves (Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies) begins this valuable book with her own sleep story. That, in turn, sets a framework for the advice and remedies this book comprises, which is at once personal and augmented by copious research. Her book is both rooted in wisdom and accessible to readers of all levels of interest or knowledge in herbalism. Some of the advice is fairly basic. For example, she provides options for topical herb use when ingestion isn’t appropriate, such as when an individual is preparing for surgery, and she clearly explains that some herbs have stimulating effects that should be discussed with a doctor before being used by people taking blood pressure medications or other prescriptive remedies.
VERDICT This expert and easy-reading resource helps its audience understand the best natural remedies for sleep. The book’s title is representative of its offerings.
