Healing herbs and spices for Christmas
While we all love to think that Christmas is a magical time, filled with laughter , family wellbeing and good food, the reality is that for many, it can be a mixed blessing – interlaced with bouts of flu or cold, stomach bugs, overindulgence and simply the stress of it all.
The easiest route is to rush to the chemists’ counter and wallop down proprietary tablets and powders and generally feel miserable.
An alternative is a far gentler and far greener way. Herbal remedies for cold or stomach upsets, gently spiced herbal teas and soothing natural creams and lotions can help in the healing process or simply allow you to unwind and de-stress gently.
Oswestry Herbarium is a natural oasis for those seeking non pharmaceutical relief. In addition to ready made vitamins and mineral tablets, they can whistle up (and don’t I know it) very effective natural remedies for a whole host of winter related ailments, from colds and tummy aches, to chapped hands and feet, overindulgence or stress.
They are also a superb stockiest of herbs and spices you can buy in any quantity you need, herb infused sea salt, mulled wine spices and even frankincense and myrrh!
If you are looking for natural remedies or natural body cleansers creams and soaps, they stock Weleda amongst other organic brands and their proprietary face creams and cleansers are really lovely.
For those who love essential oils, they have a full range in stock, together with Bach Flower Remedies.
And the goodness doesn’t stop there. The Herbarium can also offer individual health consultations with the experienced owner and qualified Medical Herbalist Louise Idoux. Or you can chose from a welcomingly wide range of complementary health therapies from therapeutic massage to luxurious natural facials.
If you’ve enjoyed a Herbarium therapy treatment, then share the love, and give a Herbarium Voucher to someone special this Christmas.
