Herbal Remedies

Ever since the beginnings of human civilization, people have been using plants for healing. Many plant ingredients have strong therapeutic properties, which were recognized centuries ago and are backed up by modern scientific research.

Various parts of the plants (leaves, flowers or roots) can be used and depending on the chemical composition of the essential ingeredients, various methods of extraction can be applied.

If the essential ingredients are water-soluble, then water-based preparations are made (such as: infusions, decoctions, syrups, poultices, lotions and compresses). There are also alcohol, oil, glycerite or vinegar based preparations. Infused oils and ointments are typically used externally.

There are also other types of preparations such as powders, creams, steam inhalations, baths and skin washes, gargles and mouthwashes, and pessaries and suppositories.

It is important that herbal extracts are sourced from reputable manufacturers that maintain conistent quality standars.
