This is Coltsfoot - Tussilago farfara. It is one of my favourite herbs, and it just got useful. Coronavirus has been getting a lot of attention - it is dangerous because it fills the lungs with mucus. Tussilago is useful because it eases coughs at the same time as thinning mucus down and encourages its expulsion from the lungs.

If you have any health concerns, please ring me on 01286 865883 / 07989325028 or message me.

The other day I was peeling bark from lengths of Willow - and I peeled almost a kilogram of bark. It is used extensively in my anti-inflammatory, arthritis, joint pain/mobility, and muscle ache mixes.

Last weekend, I went back to school and started my MSc in Herbal Therapeutics. Don't worry, I'm not leaving Wales, I'm on block release! I did this to gain skills and give the very best herbal treatment for North Wales. This is the view from our classroom overlooking Lincoln Cathedral.

The wonder that is Wormwood - Artemisia absinthum. It is extremely bitter and rather lemonadeish in its smell.

If you suffer from acid reflux and would like my help managing it naturally, or for learning opportunities 01286865883 / 07989325028 or dm me for more info!
