The herbs recommended for self-treatment in this blog are extremely safe, but you must follow the guidelines on dosage as strictly as you would with conventional medicine. Do not take larger doses than recommended and make sure that you adjust the dose for children, pregnant women and people over 70. General dosage advice is given in post 6; please familiarise yourself with this information. More specific advice is given when discussing particular treatments.

Please pay attention to the specific precautions highlighted throughout the blog, as some herbs are not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, for example, or for young children or people taking conventional medication.
With one or two exceptions, I do not recommend that you treat children below two years old without first consulting a medical herbalist. I also advise against using essential oils for babies, small children and pregnant women without first consulting a trained aromatherapist or herbalist.
