Guide to Prescriptions

Whether you are a patient ordering your prescription for the first time or are looking to get a repeat prescription, we're here to help.

How Prescriptions Work

1. Consultation

After your initial consultation with a medical herbalist, you will receive a unique prescription based on your health condition and requirements. This could be made up of a blend of tinctures, dried herbs and supplements.

2. Dispensing

Our expert dispensers get to work on building your prescription by mixing the individual tinctures and herbs for you. Your prescription is tailored to your specific health requirements.

3. Receive Your Prescription

You can choose to receive your prescription by coming in to one of our stores or through one of our delivery partners. This means no matter where you are based, your prescription can reach you.

New Patients

After your initial consultation with your medical herbalist, they will put together a unqiue prescription based on the tinctures, herbs and supplements best suited to help you.

Your herbalist will let you know which products to purchase as part of your prescription and these can be bought in-store or online.

Typically, a herbalist will give a patient one months supply to see how they progress.

Repeat Prescriptions

Reordering repeat prescriptions is quick and easy to do online. Simply follow the same process by adding the individual items that are on your prescription to your order and checkout.

Prescriptions have an expiry date and can be reordered upto this date. After this date, you will need a follow up with your medical herbalist to get it renewed or a new prescription written if your medical situation has changed.
