Introducing book 3 in the Herbology At Home series

Homemade Health

by Anke Bialas


Who doesn’t have at least one childhood memory of Mum or Grandma taking something from the pantry to ease discomfort caused by an everyday mishap? Milk, butter, water, and aloe vera were common treatments for burns. Onions and garlic emerged for all manner of emergencies from toothaches to insect bites. Chamomile tea eased the tummy and helped a teething infant sleep. We trusted them completely and did not question their cures.

Old world remedies are back in favour. After a long time of relying on products from the drugstore people now prefer to go back to natural, time honoured treatments for minor ailments and injuries.


Homemade Health is a collection of home remedies straight from a time, not so long ago, when people went to their garden or kitchen pantry before going to a doctor.

Home remedies book

Some tried and true, some quirky, but all based on natural remedies your grandmother knew and most likely used on a regular basis.

  • Healing properties of common culinary herbs
  • 43 common ailments
  • 160+ remedies with recipes
  • Common & botanical names
  • Harvesting & preserving
  • Making herbal remedies at home


The idea behind Herbology at Home: Homemade Health is that it is stepping stone, giving you an insight into the type of remedies that used to be popular instead of their modern synthetic counter parts. Perhaps you already know some of these old world treatments from your own Grandmother, or maybe this book will inspire you to chat to her and learn more about what health measures she grew up with.

“Herbology At Home represents the continuation of an ancient tradition that allows herb lore to be practised by every day people in everyday situations.” ~ Anke Bialas

Lucky enough to have been raised with herbal traditions, Anke Bialas has expanded her knowledge of herbs and their applications over the years which she now shares with those new to natural health.  She encourages use of herbs in unconventional ways, advocating that even a little bit of Nature goes a long way.  With a firm believe that herbal health can fit into even the most conventional home, she makes all things herbal appealing to everyone.

Anke is known for her practical, everyday approach to herbal health which led to the creation of the Herbology At Home series of practical guides to herbs and natural health,  providing a convenient reference you can take with you where you need them most.

Herbology.com.au has been running since 2008.
Herbology is about all things herbal, with the non-alternative reader in mind. “It came about when my own passion for herbs and constant questions from friends and strangers collided. There were people who wanted to embrace a more natural approach to health & home but had no intention of changing their entire lifestyle.”  Many of the sources online assume a certain grassroots knowledge, Herbology doesn’t.

All things herbal means literally anything to do with herbs – recipes, gardening, herb info, herbal remedies, craft, pet care, a product review, books, herbalism courses.  Herbology provides safe (and sane) base knowledge to whet the appetite and encourage more learning about natural health.
