This collection of recipes are natural, non-alcoholic stimulants and tranquilisers to improve awareness, aid sleep and everything in between. The perfect book for global foragers, fermenters and those fascinated by the healing power of herbs. Isted has cornered the fashion elites’ desire to heal themselves naturally; with clients including Missoni and Jimmy Choo; and now brings his delectable potions to a wider audience. This is no rarefied guide; using common plants such as dandelions and nettles, Isted reveals the history and practical processes of fermenting, cold-brewing and blending at home, accompanied by beautiful 18th century botanical drawings. Most importantly, 60 amazingly delicious and non-alcoholic recipes teach the secrets of love elixirs, sleeping draughts or brain boosters, among many others. Michael draws on his specialist knowledge of worldwide plants to match each to a desired effect. A seasonal guide shows when and how to harvest plants to use and how they can give you different qualities throughout the year, wherever you live, while Michael touches on ancient practices of harvesting by the Sun or Moon, depending on what is needed from a potion. Whether you’re an active forager, looking for a healthier way to live more in tune with the elements or want to try your hand at making drinks from the plants that surround you, this is the book for you.
