You can make the remedies in your kitchen with just your usual pans and equipment. If you can boil potatoes, you can make these remedies. It means never having to buy shop-bought chemical remedies ever again. You'll save a fortune, and you'll know exactly what has gone into each remedy.
The Herbal Remedies Kit lets you take control of your family's health, and gives you an insight into the wisdom of herbs. It's a fascinating study in its own right. You'll be joining the large numbers of people who are re-learning about the health giving properties of herbs, and re-connecting with our past. Instead of relying on pharmacists and big pharma, you'll be making your own remedies.
Imagine going for a walk and coming back with a rucksack full of dandelions, valerian or yarrow.
You might take on a role like the traditional healer, the person the village turned to when a child was feverish or someone has sprained their ankle.
Think how impressed people will be when their swelling subsides, their wound heals fast or their headache disappears.
Your kitchen will be like an old time apothecary, with drying herbs hanging from the ceiling and a home-made remedy bubbling on the hob. Perhaps you'll become a medical herbalist, using your skills and experience to earn a living?
