Medical Herbalist

Emma trained as a medical herbalist over 8 years ago, and has continued her knowledge and development since. She is a member of the Irish Register of Herbalists, who are  a professional body for fully trained, competent herbalists who meet the qualification threshold and who accept the high standards of ethics & stringent criteria.
She is trained in first response emergency care, and often provides first aid and acute herbal medicine at festivals, she finds that an amalgamation of the two specialities can offer so much more.
Emma is passionate about the native plants that grow all around us and loves empowering people to reconnect to their local flora. She regularly offers foraging walks and workshops, in which participants get to try wild foods or make their own medicine to take home, along with skills and knowledge for their continuation along their herbal journey.

It has been the medicine in all peoples for time immemorial and has a proven traditional record, it is only now scientists are able to 'discover' what the plants, wise folk & herbalists have always known.
