The old herbal remedies of your grandmother held a lot of truth in them still to this day. Folk herbalism is something that belonged to the people for the people. Some might have called it witchcraft but we now these were the old recipes of the community healers and wise folk.
These recipes are ones that I have found to be tried and tested and most of all really tasty. Where possible i have adapted them from old Scottish recipes or reformulated them from newer ones to whats available from the green pharmacy of Scotland.
These recipes are formulated with herbs found only in the bioregions of Scotland where possible. I have tried to discount the inclusion of exotic and far-flung herbs though somethings can’t be helped (cocoa for instance).
