    REVIEW Welsh Herbal CD rom

    What people have said about the herbal so far:

    "A Welsh Herbal is great... It is really excellent - informative, rich and good to look at." Beata Bishop - Author of "A Time To Heal"

    "A delightful presentation of history, folklore and tradition in this Welsh Herbal. Personally I have known Dylan and Stella for over 20 years and it is a pleasure to see their herbal knowledge being made available for all to see." Christopher Menzies-Trull - Medical Herbalist and author of "Herbal Medicine - Keys to Physiomedicalism"

    "Thank you both for all the research into herbalism through its long tradition, folkore, medicine and photos of the natural habitats of these most simple and effective herbs. It makes herbalism and healing accessible to everyone who cares about natural remedies. The wonderful photos of common herbs growing by the waysides removes a lot of the mystique that science and religion have imposed on the herbal tradition over centuries. It offers a very profound awareness of the natural world in which we live." Frances Woodley

    "A Welsh Herbal is a mine of information. I was amazed that a CD-Rom about herbs in Wales could cover such a wide range of subjects - all associated with the herbs. This CD includes down-to-earth guidance for the use of herbs for medicinal purposes which, as a novice, I found to be easy to follow and understand. I was enthralled by the photography. Quite often it is difficult to identify plants from a photograph, but these photographs show each herb in detail, so it can be easily identified.

    The links to folklore and the historical context are particularly fascinating, as I can identify many of the places and stories mentioned, myself living in Wales. Instead of producing a mere directory of herbs, this gives the stories surrounding the subject their true meaning. Thank you for producing such a brilliant encyclopaedia!" Elaine Humble
