Diane Kidman Herb Book Giveaway

                                             My Herb Garden -- 2008

  You might have noticed the Amazon buttons in the sidebar for five Diane Kidman books.  It's now time to come clean.  Diane Kidman is my daughter and I am very proud of her. Diane studied herbalism with the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine, and she loves nothing better than teaching others how to grow and use herbs for everyday purposes.

Diane's Amazon Kindle and paperback best sellers include:
Herbs Gone Wild! Ancient Remedies Turned Loose
Beauty Gone Wild! Herbal Remedies for Gorgeous Skin & Hair
Hair Gone Wild! Recipes & Remedies for Natural Tresses
Teas for Life: 101 Herbal Teas for Greater Health
Smoothie Power!  Recipes for Weight Loss, Vitality & the Occasional Superpower

  If you have often thought about starting to use those herbs that you grow for more than flavoring your favorite dishes; if you have often thought about learning to be more pro-active and self-sufficient in the medicinal world; if you have often thought about using the wonderful bounty that is free for all of us right here on earth and probably in your own back yard, then these books could benefit you. And guess what?  I am giving away two of my favorites.  One lucky winner will receive paperback autographed copies of:
Herbs Gone Wild! Ancient Remedies Turned Loose,
Teas for Life,
and a lavender sachet.

  There are 3 ways to enter -- do one or all! to enter.   See how to do it here:

Good Luck!!

I learned that if you try Henna on your hair, try it on a spot underneath the top layer first.

I love herbs for the smell, color and to try to use them in place of traditional seasonings and headings. Would love this book.

Just visited the site & did not realize you could use stinging nettle to eat and for a tea. We have a lot of that here on our property in Texas. Now to see if I can pick it without getting stung. I love learning things like this.

Herbs take my cooking and baking to the next level--and fresh herbs from the garden are the best.

wallindeb said...

I learned that: To use a cardamom pod to ease stomach upset, break open the outside and remove the small black seeds. You can break off a seed (they’re sort of segmented chunks) and suck on the small piece, breaking it apart occasionally with your teeth.

RobinL said...

Of course you are proud, a published author for a daughter! My love of herbs is what originally directed me to your garden. I think I love them best for the scents, because I often grow some that I never use other than enjoying their scent.

Stephanie Larison said...

I would rather use herbs because of the freshness, and I love them in tea!

We love herbs for cooking and putting in drinks. My father in law collects and sells Ginseng, but we can't grow it here up north.
