To be able to provide you with Herbal Medicine, you need to undertake a consultation, one on one in person, or in case of too much distance via video call. In the consultation I can discuss with you about your medical history up until today, medication you have used and / or still using, family medical history, your diet and lifestyle, and if you are under supervision of any specialists.
For the use of Herbal Products, like creams, balms and salves there is no personal consultation needed, you can contact me to order and purchase the product you’re looking for, which will be tailor made for you. For all products only Organic Herbs , Organic and Natural ingredients and Organic Essential Oils are used. If you are aware of any allergy for a herb or essential oil, it’s important to mention this when you order a product.
Creams, balms, salves and lipbalms are tailor made with the best ingredients for the ailment you need it for.
Herbal Medicine are always tailored to your individual needs, based on the underlying causes of your illness. Approval from your GP and / or other Specialist is needed, especially when you want to use Herbal Medicine next to your Pharmaceutical medication. Never stop using or lessen your Pharmaceutical medication without approval from your GP and specialists.
