Western Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine, is one of the oldest forms of medicine used to nurture and restore the body. It is a gentle approach that is suitable for adults, children and babies.

Medical herbalists use fresh and dried plants which may be prepared in the form of teas, tinctures for internal consumption  or used topically in oils and creams. The main aim of Western herbal medicine is to treat the whole person, tailoring a medicinal formulation to each individual's needs.
