“Having known Pip for approaching thirty years her on-going commitment to herbal medicine and health care is as fervent now as it was then. Drawing on her own and colleagues knowledge this book presents a practical guide in how to make, prepare, and use home remedies; from laundry mixtures to lozenges, The Domestic Alchemist offers a practical, encyclopaedic guide on how to do it yourself from your own home.”

“Pip Waller has drawn together contributions from many internationally renowned herbalists each of whom is a specialist in their own area.  This essential compendium will delight and excite each and every reader whether they are a herbalist or those with a more general interest in the subject.  It is an indispensible guide with easy to follow recipes and lovely illustrations.    Having been a medical herbalist for over twenty years, I am certain that this will become a useful and frequently used resource.  I believe that this book will stand the test of time and for many years to come will remain the must have text for everyone interested in Domestic Alchemy.”
