That’s what GMP is all about—setting up the navigation system for your production and manufacturing, so you can avoid the potholes and steer clear of the factors that could potentially wreck your product.

Learn: GMP Basics, Documentation, Standard Operating Procedures, Specification Sheets, Ingredient & Material Lot Numbers, Master Formulas, Batch Records, Batch Numbers, Quality Control and more.

Wild Foods for Every Table

There is delicious food all around us, food that we've just stopped noticing. This book is crammed with unique and tasty recipes to help a beginner get started or expand a old forager's repertoire. We stopped counting the recipes when we hit 80, and they were submitted by well over 30 contributors. While there are pictures, this is not a field guide. It IS a great cookbook. Spiral bound, b&w with color cover.

A note from Ron at Willow Way; just thumbing through this book and reading some of the interesting tidbits and stories is fun but believe me, as soon as Spring gets here, we will be out picking what some call weeds, and trying out some of these recipes.

Anyone could easily start with the essential oil name, and find out what particular treatments could be effected with the information provided. In the Chart, one could immediately find the traditional uses and actions, the purposes and methods of delivery applications, toxicity and contra-indications, along with their traditional uses in perfumery. Also, morphologic and character types are included, as well as all relevant esoteric relations.
