Indigenous Healing Plants is a fascinating compilation of the uses of more than 140 indigenous plants, from well-known garden favourites such as agapanthus and scented geraniums to lesser known plants like agt-dae-geneesbossie and ashwaganda. Margaret Roberts, in her inimitable style, shares the story of each plant's history and its various uses - medicinal, in cooking, as natural insect repellents and deodorisers - along with tried-and-tested recipes, as well as brief notes on how to grow it in the garden. The plants are illustrated by Sandy's full-colour photographs, alongside Margaret's delicate line drawings.

This fully updated and expanded edition of Indigenous Healing Plants, which was first published in 1995, now includes an additional 15 indigenous medicinal plants as well as a new section on naturalised weeds and foraged food plants.

This book records traditional wisdom and practical information on the many uses of indigenous South African plants and will appeal to anyone interested in health, gardening, cooking and homecrafting. It also offers a historical perspective and botanical detail that will be of interest to students of Botany, Homeopathy and Medicine.

Which chemical compounds does it contain? How safe is it? What is known about its pharmacological activity? What evidence is there that it is effective?
