Your child has another sore throat... what do you do?
Whether someone in your family scrapes a knee, has a sore throat, or a fever... do you wish you knew how to bring comfort and relief naturally?
Imagine the confidence you'd feel in reaching for a home-made remedy that has been used for thousands of years, safely. Many of these remedies can be made with ingredients you grew yourself, or are easily found.
With the instability of supply chains, the relief in knowing you have the medicines to help can bring peace of mind at 3:00AM.
Part of you – call it intuition – already knows it's possible to take care of yourself and your loved ones using herbs and natural home remedies.
This is why I created the The Natural Family Care Kit.
- Imagine using medicine that is alive, gentle and effective
- Trust you are using safe medicines that cost pennies to make, with simple ingredients that are restorative to the Earth
- Feel confident in your ability to build a beautiful comprehensive First-Aid Kit that has everything you need in it for when urgency strikes
It’s all possible for you. And how do I know?
Because I’ve been teaching and practicing herbal medicine for more than half my life.
I'm Seraphina, Your Trusted Herbalist
Seasonally gathering herbs in rural Ontario, my grandparents first taught me the healing power of natural medicine as a young child.
A serious injury to my spine as a teenager sent me down a path of deep learning; for the first time in my life, at sixteen, it seemed every health care system — conventional and natural — failed me.
Determined to understand health, disease and what healing truly means I pursued professional training in both herbalism and homeopathy.
For 20 years, I’ve been serving patients all over the world as a classically trained homeopath and western herbalist.
On this journey of learning, I healed my chronic pain, and made a personal commitment to help others access their own potential for healing.
Anyone (Yes... even YOU) can start using herbal medicine at home
You can care for your family using herbs. And you can do it without being a gardener or going to school to become a herbalist.
This is why herbal medicine is often referred to as ‘people’s medicine’. Something as simple as making a cup of Chamomile tea can not only taste good – it can also ease anxiety and stomach aches, and encourage restful sleep for a family member in need.
With the right guidance, you can use (and learn to make) these simple remedies right now.
It's safe for everyone
One of the most common concerns when starting to use plant medicine is whether or not it's safe for the vulnerable.
Can I use it with my children?
Is it safe for my elderly parent?
What about pregnant women?
I created the Natural Family Care Kit to eliminate ANY confusion about dosage and provide you with clear, concise recipes & safety considerations.
Here's the good news: plant medicine is not only effective, it’s incredibly gentle.
In the kit, you will find everything you need to feel confident in choosing when to use herbs and homeopathic remedies (and when to go to the hospital), including how to adjust dosage for the most vulnerable people in your life.START CRAFTING HERBAL REMEDIES
Some of our most powerful plant allies are also incredibly common
Plant medicine is accessible to us all, whether it's already in your cupboard, for sale in a local greenhouse, grown from seed yourself and gathered from your garden.
Readily available in stores, chamomile is soothing, calming, and an effective remedy for eye irritations when made into an eyewash.
Yellow Kitchen Onion
Hidden away in your pantry, the standard yellow kitchen onion helps alleviate cough symptoms once turned into a delicious syrup.
That spicy root we all know and love is not just a lovely kitchen spice. Ginger helps to ease nausea as a tea, and so much more.
Raspberry leaf can alleviate acute diarrhea quickly, once made into a strong infusion.
Available in most health food stores, marshmallow root is gentle, soothing, cooling, and pain-relieving for urinary tract infections as a nourishing tea.
A common beautiful blossom found in fever teas to bring comfort and relief.
