 What is herbal medicine?

Marigolds growing on my allotment

Marigolds growing in my garden. Calendula officinalis is traditionally used for skin and wound healing and makes a wonderfully soothing cream.

Herbal medicine is everywhere we go. Pavement cracks grow medicines, hedgerows usually are medicines, motorway central reservations, verges, fields, parks, gardens… Nature’s bounty is constantly reminding us it’s here, showing us healing plants… however hard we try to keep them down!

Those ‘pesky’, tenacious weeds are the foundation of herbal medicine and that’s what gets me so excited. It’s there for me, for you, and can be used by everyone.

I’ll use the leaves, roots, flowers and berries of our native medicinal plants to assist you on your health journey.

Together we will find the best path for you.

Herbal medicines are taken internally as nourishing tinctures or teas and may be applied to skin in rich oils, gels and creams.
