Medical Information

The information and recommendations contained within this web site are not intended to take the place of diagnosis and treatment by a qualified practitioner. We cannot accept responsibility for any adverse effects which arise from self-medication.

Any persistent condition should always be referred to a medical herbalist or doctor, and all medicines, including herbs and essential oils, should be avoided during pregnancy unless prescribed by a doctor or herbalist.

Never give herbs or essential oils to babies and children without checking with a qualified professional first. Likewise, never take them in conjunction with other medication without first checking whether it is safe to do so.

Just because herbs and essential oils are ‘natural’, it does not mean that they are safe for everyone to use. If you develop a rash or headaches or if you have other concerns, please check with your family doctor.
