  • Comments

    This kit is not designed to replace a consultation with a suitably qualified and knowledgeable herbalist. 

    There is some overlap between this kit and the Medicinal Herbs For Women test kit. My very grateful appreciation to Christine Herbert, Member of the Association of Master Herbalists (UK), for her help in choosing the herbs to include, ensuring the correct Latin names were used and that the action of the herbs was properly described.
