If you want to branch out in or gain more understanding of your herbal medicine making methods, this book is definitely for you.  It includes what must be the most comprehensive instructions on the greatest variety of herbal preparations - from body butters to soxhlet extractions to tincture powder concentrates - that I've ever seen.  There are also lots of extremely useful tables (in case you're looking for, say, the right solvent to use to extract aromatics).  The authors also cover about 250 medicinal herbs (from acai to yucca) in an impressive materia medica.
