Renowned Herbalist & Founder of Herbal Teas Australia
I am often asked by customers if the herbal teas I make really work. I can understand their skepticism. Herbal remedies have been used for thousands of years and in fact, are basically plant food. However, herbs are the genesis for modern medicines and a good example of how herbs are used in the manufacture of modern drugs is White Willow Bark. This is a herb I use in the ACHES & PAINS and HEADACHE teas for pain relief.
Pharmaceutical companies extract a component from White Willow Bark to make the pain-relieving drug, aspirin. I use the original source when I use the herb.
In fact, pharmaceutical companies are the biggest users worldwide of herbs!
Testimonials are a great way for people to hear about the effectiveness of herbal teas because testimonials are customers telling other people about their success and satisfaction.
Let me share the following 3 testimonials from people telling me of the effectiveness of the herbal teas they are drinking:
Lance of Healesville writes:
“My brother saw your RESTLESS LEGS herbal tea at St Andrew’s market recently and immediately bought a packet for me. I am a chronic sufferer of restless legs to the point where I haven’t had a full nights sleep for over 40 years. Some nights I simply have to get up and then I jog on the spot for 15 mins, go for a walk-up in the bush behind our house, meditate, apply ice packs….I could go on, but it is usually to no avail or a very short time before the restlessness returns.
With your tea (I’ve been drinking a litre or more per day) and advice of taking magnesium at the end of the day, I have been having better nights. For the first time in a very long while I have been going to bed hopeful of many reduced symptoms of the dreaded RSL. Thank you!”

“A girlfriend gave me some of your FATIGUE tea to try and it has been helping me feel fantastic! I’ve got blastocysts (a parasite) which absolutely saps all of my energy and is a really nasty bug that’s hard to kill. Your tea has really helped to pep me up and give me extra energy (something we take for granted when we feel healthy.)
Wendy of Inverloch:
“Thank you for the prompt delivery of my tea. Just a report on the tea. My cholesterol had risen to 7.2 and after drinking the CHOLESTEROL tea for 5 weeks, it dropped to 6.2. My doctor was very pleased, as was I. I will continue to drink it.”
These are some of the many testimonials I have received.(go to the testimonials page to read more and see some video clips).
Incorporating herbal teas into a healthy diet and lifestyle can make a huge difference to health and wellbeing. So the question about whether herbs work if a bit like asking if eating good food will keep me healthy.
