About the Book

‘At a time when disconnection from wildlife threatens our mental health this book offers the perfect adaptor to plug our brains back into natures’ therapeutic socket. Page by page it reconnects us to the real, wild world we live in. A must-read for any modern-day Homo sapiens.’ Chris Packham

In The Wild Remedy, Emma Mitchell’s deeply personal account of her interactions with nature and its healing properties, she recorded, month by month, a year of her nature finds and wildlife discoveries and the science behind how nature affects our neurochemistry. Now, in this stunning journal, she invites her many followers to accompany her on that road, to experience nature for themselves, record their own interactions and find healing in the natural world.

Full of Emma’s exquisite artworks and photographs, this journal contains many of her own observations and reflections, along with prompts and ideas that will help to unlock the readers’ experience of nature. It shows how reconnecting with the natural world around us can be a powerful tool – as medicinal as any talking therapy or pharmaceutical.

This unique journal includes activities, drawing prompts, contemplative quotes and lots of space for you to write about your own thoughts, feelings and experiences.
