Synopsis:

This book provides an overview of the healing uses of plants in ayurvedic medicine - a discipline thousands of years old whose main goal was the alleviation of human suffering. The sages of the Ayurveda looked to the natural world around them for medicine and treatments, to the plants used by the forest tribes since the beginning of history. As well as medicinal plants, this book also covers sacred plants, culinary plants, cosmetic plants and aromatic plants. Each plant is illustrated with a miniature painted by Indian artists.
