Irene  Dalichow - The Spice Apothecary


Everybody talks about spices these days. The more global it gets, the more we are open to exotic aromas. But not only the culinary level plays a role: For millennia, they have been powerful remedies. They help against different diseases, from flu over diabetes and intestinal difficulties to headaches. Also, the essential oils of spices are very important in aromatherapy. And with some of them, you can fumigate like with incense-sticks. In this book, for the first time all this information is compiled. With many propositions for applications, recipes and tips.

Did you know that

• mustard wakes your physical energy?

• cinnamon is good for coping with diabetes II?

• garlic works as an antibiotic?

• the essential oils of fennel, juniper, and lemongrass are very important in aromatherapy?

In former times, spices were among the most expensive and precious things that people knew. Today, they are available to everybody, and they do not cost a lot. In the kitchen they make everything a lot more tasty. In the field of health, they help the body recover naturally, and there are no side-effects to them. And to the soul, they give powerful support.

In this book there is all the information put together that is interesting to non-specialists: 25 well-known spices and their amazing effects.
