Herbal medicine was the subject at this month’s meeting when local practitioner Beverley Meredith-Bailey spoke about her work to the ladies present. After several different education choices and diverse career paths, Bev re-found her childhood love of nature and curiosity about how plants can help in treating various illnesses and disorders.
After six years of absorbing and challenging study she is qualified as a Medical Herbalist and now practises locally making many of the tinctures, salves, teas and syrups she prescribes herself.
Full of information members asked advice and enjoyed discussing and sampling her wares. The ideal herb for reviving and rejuvenating tired skin and improving wrinkles according to Bev is nettle seeds, you can guess what we all want to have added to our medicine cabinet immediately!!
