Guide to Prescriptions

Ordering your herbal prescription has never been easier. Whether you are ordering for the first time, or purchasing a repeat prescription our team is here to help.

How Prescriptions Work

1. Consultation

During your consutlation with a medical herbalist they will create a unique prescription based on your specific needs. This is often a blend of tinctures, dried herbs and supplements.

2. Dispensing

One of Napiers' trained dispensary staff combine together the unique tinctures and herbs within your prescription, creating a mix tailored to your health requirements.

3. Delivery/Collection

You have the flexibility to choose between delivery or collection. No matter where you are in the UK, we try our best to get prescriptions to you within 4 working days via delivery or the same day for collection.

New Patients

After your first appointment, your medical herbalist will create a prescription for us to dispense. Your prescription may contain a blend of tinctures, a mix of dried herbs to take as a tea, as well as vitamins, minerals and supplements.

These products can be purchased easily and quickly both online and in-store.

Repeat Prescriptions

If you are an existing patient looking to reorder a prescription, you can purchase either online or in-store by adding the relevant prescription products to your cart.

Prescriptions have an expiry date which means you can reorder your prescription without needing to see your herbalist up to this date.

After your prescription expires, you will need an approved extension from your herbalist. In a lot of cases, your herbalist would want another consultation to ensure your prescription is as relevant and effective based on your most recent health status.
