An essential guide and invaluable resource for anyone interested in herbal medicine, Australian flora and the indigenous Australian culture.
Plants have been used for medicinal purposes since earliest recorded history and Australia?s varied flora provided Aboriginal people with medicines. With the arrival of Europeans much of this knowledge was overtaken by modern drugs and techniques but today there is a revival of interest in traditional medicines.
Australian Medicinal Plants covers the Aboriginal use of native plants and explains how the first settlers learned from the First Nations Peoples medicinal values. There is information on nearly 500 individual plants, how they were used, what they’re known pharmacological constituents are, where to find them and how to prepare remedies. The species are helpfully arranged in chapters according to their use: for fevers, painkillers, antiseptics and digestive disorders for instance.
