dried herbs

Herbs can be used for culinary purposes such as in herbal teas or with food as well as for therapeutic purposes. When used correctly, herbal medicine can have a beneficial effect on health and wellbeing.

In general, it is advisable to seek help from a qualified herbalist or healthcare professional before embarking on a course of herbal treatment. If you are already taking prescribed medication it is essential to seek professional advice before taking herbs.

Keep herbal tinctures, dried herbs and remedies out of the reach of children.

Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

As a general guide use one to two teaspoons of dried herb or mixture of herbs to a cupful of water.  Place the herb in a cup, pour on boiling water and leave to steep for ten minutes before straining.

For further information and recommended dosage please consult a qualified practitioner.

You can book an appointment with a Medical Herbalist at Neal’s Yard Remedies Edinburgh in store, by phone or online via MindBody.
