I love experimenting making my own natural beauty products and if you're interesting in DIYing your own, one of the easiest to start with is making lip balms. All you need is a few base ingredients and then you can add whatever scents/flavours you like!
I'm starting a new series on here where each month I will do a little feature on a different herb, it may be related to the season or time of year or may just be my favourite herb at the time! For this month I'm introducing Ginger!
I love whipping up these vegan energy bites for healthy snacks on the go, they're great for when you have sweet cravings, but these are free from refined sugars so shouldn't crash your blood sugar levels and maintain energy more steadily. Here I have a few different ideas with nut-free and gluten-free versions also.
My name is Helen Davison and I'm a NIMH registered practising Medical Herbalist based in Ramsbottom, Lancashire. I've had a keen interest in herbal remedies since my early teens and would experiment creating my own balms and bath bombs using natural ingredients, which prompted me in discovering and pursuing a career in Western Herbal Medicine.
