A word to the wise when using herbs
Always take an uncertain diagnosis or an ailment that does not respond to home treatment, after a day or two, to a health practitioner.
Take care that you buy your herb plants from a reputable nursery, so that you are sure that you have bought the correct plant.
Remember that herbs have strong chemical constituents and that they should be treated with respect. Herbal dosages are usually small and side effects should not be experienced. Keep herbal medicine out of reach of uninformed people.
With these few cautions in mind, remember that herbs are basically safe and that you can use them effectively and successfully.
