Herb eBooks

Have you noticed the Herbs Gone Wild ebook series in my right column at Amazon? I am so happy and proud of my good friend Diane Kidman that I just had to post her widgets.  Diane is a blogger at dkmommyspot and An Uncommon Thread. And now she has finally achieved her dream of becoming an author. Her three books have been consistently in the top ten herb ebooks at Amazon, often reaching the coveted number one spot.
Diane has spent several years studying and taking a course with the famous herbalist Michael Moore.  And now she has put all of her knowledge to use by writing these three witty and helpful herb books.

Herbs Gone Wild! Ancient Remedies Turned Loose, is filled with suggestions on how to use the everyday herbs you grow in your garden (and others you might need to purchase) as health aides for your family. The following product descriptions will give you a good idea of what these books are all about:
Whether it's cold and flu viruses, high blood pressure, or arthritis, herbs have offered reliable relief for centuries. Herbs Gone Wild! (Volume 1 of the Herbs Gone Wild! Series) shares practical remedies in an entertaining and easy-to-read format so you can be your family's home herbalist. Learn what herbs to use for cold and flu symptoms, first aid, general aches and pains, and more. Medicinal teas and tinctures with proper dosages are laid out simply. You'll even learn how to make your own tinctures and salves, saving money and improving your family's health naturally. And with the help of the Herbal Medicine Chest guide at the end of the book, you'll be able to quickly reference over 70 herbs for home use.

Diane's second book in the series is Beauty Gone Wild! Recipes for Gorgeous Skin and Hair. Once again it is very easy and fun to read.  I found my self wanting to create some herb recipes right away and get started experimenting with her suggestions.
Tired of forking over large amounts of money for fancy-pants lotions, creams, hair care products, and perfumes? Want to get rid of your cupboard of chemical cocktails disguised as deodorants and toothpaste? In Beauty Gone Wild! (Volume II of the Herbs Gone Wild! Series) you'll learn how to save a ton of money while avoiding harmful ingredients by making your own herb-based beauty care products. The instructions are easy, the ingredients pure and natural. The best part? It's fun. And the results are phenomenal. The moisturizing cream recipe alone is worth the read!

And the newest of the three part series is Hair Gone Wild! Recipes and Remedies for Natural Tresses.
I think this one was the most enjoyable for me.  What girl doesn't like to fuss with her hair.  And we all have one problem or another whether it's too curly or straight, thick or thin, and maybe the color is not the correct shade to suit us.
Tired of your hair's unruly behavior? Ready for some natural hair care that not only works but brings your hair's true beauty to light? Whether you're looking for a few quick remedies to end your hair woes, or you're ready to go all out and learn the magic behind the no 'poo phenomenon, Hair Gone Wild! will take you there with easy-to-understand instructions and a good dose of that most ancient of remedies, humor. Everything from how to make homemade hairspray and gels to how to ditch the shampoo and grow magnificently manageable hair that you'll finally love!

I'm sure you'll love these books as much as I do.  Pop over to the side bar and give one a try!
Congratulations, Diane, on the publication of your books and the start of a new career!
