Pink 'Good Health' Saturday

For this Pink Saturday, I thought I would show off a book that I noticed at the local library the other day....."Good Health Magic" by Gill Farrer-Halls.

I actually kept looking at it and then kept adding it back to the shelf. However, that bright, vintage art cover kept starring back at me and calling my name. I then finally decided to take it home with me to really look at it. The vintage style of the cover and other pages really caught my eye. What also caught my attention, was the actual contents within it's pages: the focus of many of the timeless remedies that our grandmothers and mothers knew about and knew when to use them (when we were home from school because we did not feel well). It also has info in it about natural cleaning supplies (something different from the chemical-laden stuff that we would normally use).

It is truly amazing that many herbal, homeopathic and "kitchen"remedies have been passed through the many countless generations and are still being used today. This is one topic that I really enjoy exploring. I really enjoy learning about the many herbs and their uses....the many plants and other natural substances that were created to help us heal and live a more healthful life.
Hope that all of you are having a grande and 'healthful' Pink Saturday! Stroll on over to Beverly's at 'How Sweet the Sound' (remember to look for the November 22nd link) to discover other pink joy.

Thanks for stopping by to visit me :)

Books on natural remedies are great. I have one that I enjoy...so many things our elders used really worked, no matter how bad some tasted.:). Happy Pink Saturday.
