Plants are often dismissed as mere jadi-booti (herbs) and frowned upon as part of desi ilaj (traditional cure). But if one keeps an open mind and really goes into the world of plants, one discovers, almost with humility, what wonders they can perform. If used in the correct proportion and manner, they can help you achieve good health, beauty and a sense of well-being. This book, written in a lucid, concise style, helps one select plants according to one's needs and preferences. Common ailments like cold, cough, headache and fever, need not be followed by a visit to the doctor. One just has to reach out for the right herb, use it in the right proportion and at the right time. A patient can get instant relief from vexing ailments.
Some herbs are also a storehouse of beauty aids and remedies. This book tells you how to make inexpensive face packs, gels and skin toners.
