THE GAR­DEN APOTHE­CARY: HOME­MADE REME­DIES FOR EV­ERY­DAY AIL­MENTS

DNA Magazine - - BOOKS - By Reece Carter

Carter is, per­haps, best known as a male model, es­pe­cially to fans of Ellen DeGeneres. Back in 2013, he won an un­der­wear mod­el­ling com­pe­ti­tion in Mel­bourne run by Ellen when she was in Aus­tralia film­ing seg­ments for her TV show. His prize in­cluded an all-ex­penses paid trip to Amer­ica to ap­pear on The Ellen Show.

These days, Reece is mak­ing a name for him­self as “the herb nerd”. A trained natur­opath, he has a pop­u­lar web se­ries and has now pub­lished his first book, which com­piles home­made reme­dies for ev­ery­day ail­ments.

Suf­fer­ing from tired eyes? A cold sore out­break? Cel­lulite? Sun­burn? Poor oral hy­giene? Reece pro­vides recipes for sooth­ing balms that you can whip up your­self at home. Keep your breathe fresh with Reece’s Herbal Mouth­wash – take note, the recipe in­cludes one cup of vodka as well as licorice root and dried pep­per­mint.

Aphro­disi­acs are not over­looked with a recipe for a Li­bido Boost Shot, and Reece shares the recipe for one of his work­out se­crets – Matcha War­rior, a pre­work­out pow­der that in­cludes a pinch of cayenne pep­per. If you’ve overindulg­ed with al­co­hol the night be­fore, pep your­self up with his Han­gover Sher­bet.

There are also con­coc­tions for gut ail­ments, cold and flu symp­toms, in­som­nia and stress. The other big bonus with this book is all the colour pho­to­graphs of this very hand­some and well-built herb nerd!
