With this week marking St Patricks day, a day when we celebrate our Irishness the world over, I thought it would be nice to look at some of our herbal traditions that go back to the day of St Patrick Himself.
In Ireland we have a rich history of traditional medicines, from the druids, the ancient celts, the trading with other ancient civilizations and the monastic history we have her on this beautiful island we call home.
Some of the most traditional herbs we have her are:
Always check with a herbalist if you are on medications as there can be interactions that your herbalist will flag.
I hope you all have a happy St Patricks day and if you do end up with a bit of a hangover the willow bark might help the headache, the dandelion, burdock and nettle might help support your liver and a mashed up comfrey leaf will help if you did yourself an injury on the way home (but hopefully you won’t need any and you wake up fresh as a daisy).
