Description

American Indian Healing Arts is a blend of plant lore, history, and living tradition that draws on a lifetime of study with Indigenous healers by herbalist and ethnobotanist E. Barrie Kavasch. Each chapter introduces a new stage in the life cycle, from the Navajo First Smile Ceremony (welcoming a new baby) to the Apache Sunrise Ceremony (celebrating puberty) to the Seminole Old People's Dance. At the heart of the book are more than sixty easy-to-use herbal remedies|including soothing rubs for baby, a yucca face mask for troubled skin, relaxing teas, massage oils, natural insect repellents, and fragrant smudge sticks. There are also guidelines for assembling a basic herbal medicine chest.
