What Do I Use For This?

 

A Layman’s Guide to the Use of Herbal Teas and Essential Oils Listed by Condition or Ailment.

guide to use of herbal teas and essential oilsOften people ask me what to use for particular conditions or ailments. Sometimes they ask on behalf of a friend or relative; other times they ask for themselves.

This little booklet is designed for those who don’t feel comfortable to ask at all, or don’t get a chance to talk to me directly as I am busy with someone else at the time they want to ask.

For whatever reason you are looking at these pages, I trust you will find them useful, interesting and thought provoking. Please remember, I love to help and you can always phone me if you want to.

Go well in your life, loves and health.
