From Earth is a book of apothecaries, drawn from nature to aid healthy skin, hair and homes.
The book offers step-by-step guides through medicinal properties, uses and storage of botanicals, and how to use them to treat various health issues and create skin and household products.
Author Charlotte Rasmussen grew up on a farm in Denmark, and spent her youth exploring, playing and learning from nature.
For her, From Earth is in many ways a tribute to her family, love of the Earth and her youth learning to love and live off the land.
“Mum simply didn’t believe in over-the-counter pharmaceuticals,” Charlotte writes.
“We learnt to forage and enjoy the medicinal properties of the plants surrounding us, and how the earth could provide us with what we needed to be happy and healthy.
“This book will help you understand your natural skin and hair health, as well as natural remedies that have been used for centuries.
“It is dedicated to those who want to go back and remove unnatural and harmful ingredients from their life, by swapping to natural ingredients.
“I assure you that you will look and feel better than you ever have.”
