Sarah Hillyer South Downs Herbalist
I'm writing to give you an update about my business during these challenging times.
I have every intention to keep working from home. I have been continuing providing medicines for my patients and have regular email contact with many. I also have telephone consultations. I have Skype and Facetime set up on my computers so if you wish to chat with me that way it would be lovely to see you too.
That also applies to any new patient who would like a consultation. I send a form for completion and then charge £10 for 15 minutes as we go through your case history and medical needs.
I am also busy making the first tinctures of the spring – a nettle tonic, cleavers, and dandelion leaf as well as a hedgerow tincture of blackberry leaf, nettle and hawthorn leaf. All are full of vital minerals and vitamins that we need to keep ourselves well.
I know, that like me, many of you will be disappointed that all my courses, walks and workshops have been cancelled until June. I am however, putting together some extra herb workshops for the summer months, should we be able to run them. After all, Nature is having a whale of a time - with the lack of polluted air and beautiful weather we will have herbal medicines in abundance.
Keep well and, if you can, pick some cleavers for a fresh, immune-boost tea.
