Le Petit Livre des plantes médicinales

Pourquoi l’arnica est-il surnommé le tabac des Vosges ? En quoi l’avoine est-elle bonne pour les jeunes enfants ? Comment la bourrache est-elle devenue à la mode chez les chefs étoilés ? Que soigne une infusion de bouillon blanc ? Pourquoi mangeait-on autrefois de l’arum pied-de-veau en période de disette ?… Ce délicieux petit livre doré sur tranche présente environ 80 plantes médicinales illustrées par de magnifiques chromos.

A professional botanist, Elisabeth Trotignon is the author of several books on plants including Le Monde oublié des plantes paysannes, (The Forgotten World of Country Plants), L'Atlas des plantes médicinales (The Atlas of Medicinal Plants) and L'Atlas des arbres (The Atlas of Trees), published by Editions Delachaux and Niestlé.

Why is arnica nicknamed mountain tobacco? Why are oats good for young children? Why has borage become fashionable among Michelin-starred chefs? What does an infusion of common mullein treat? Why did people eat adder's root when food was scarce? This delightful, little gilt-edged book examines around eighty medicinal plants and is illustrated with beautiful coloured prints.
