About us

Botanica Medica has been established for over 13 years as a herbal apothecary owned and run by fully qualified, professional medical herbalists. The herbal medicines are hand-made in the apothecary and used to treat a wide range of conditions. Professional advice is available through private consultations, or for less serious conditions, over the counter. Herbs are dispensed immediately and can be mailed to your home.

Training, qualifications & experience

Our medical herbalists have BSc Hons, and or MSc in Herbal Medicine, and over 17 years experience.  All other therapists working at Botanica Medica are fully trained and insured.  We have a special interest in adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue/ME, Candida and hormonal imbalances, but herbal medicine can be successfully used to treat a wide variety of health conditions.
