Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Beautiful **I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.** This book is probably one of the most visually beautiful books on herbs I have ever read. The pictures are so vibrant and full of life. The writing is conversational and so easy to swallow. I love that there were only a limited number of herbs to discussed, making it easier to really focus on a whole body approach, and not become overwhelmed by having 100 plus different options to choose from. The herbs are also readily accessible. Nothing super out there in terms of ease of finding. I loved the ingredients, the yoga, basically everything about this book.
