A Note of Caution about Herbs

  • Herbs can have side effects and risks especially if you have any underlying health condition. Check with your doctor, pharmacist or herbalist before you use any of the herbs.
  • Make sure you understand the herbs and their correct dosage. The preparation determines to a great extend the amount that is safe to take (i.e tea vs tincture).
  • Herbs have powerful chemicals (which makes them work) and can interact with each other or medications you are taking – again check with your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Tinctures contain a lot of alcohol – so be careful. You may have heard that alcohol evaporates when you put it in hot liquid – not true! You yould have to boil it for a long time for most of the alcohol to evaporate.
  • If a little is good, a lot can be harmful. Understand the appropriate dosage for each herb and each preparation.
