Welcome to Leslie Taylor's New Blog

My name is Leslie Taylor and I am the founder of Raintree Nutrition, Inc., a company that was a leader in creating a world-wide market for the important medicinal plants of the Amazon Rainforest since 1995. More information about me can be found on the Raintree website and in the introduction to my book.

I have authored two books on rainforest medicinal plants: Herbal Secrets of the Rainforest and The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs. I am also the author of the extensive Tropical Plant Database that has been online since 1996.

I am currently writing the 2nd edition of The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs and have started this blog to share more information about these wonderful and powerful medicinal plants and the herbal remedies I've created with them.

 UPDATE! 1/23/19  My focus has shifted on this blog and my book, don't miss this new update!
