Botanical Medicine

The use of plants and herbs as medicine has been employed by many cultures around the world since before modern drugs became available. They were used to treat many common ailments such as colds & flu’s, high blood pressure, diarrhea/constipation, sluggish digestion, scrapes/wounds, and even arthritic conditions. In fact, many of today’s modern drugs are derived from plants. This showcases the powerful ability of plant compounds to heal and treat illness.

At Hawthorne we aim to safely and effectively use botanicals to affect a particular body system (eg. heart, lungs, brain) or to achieve a specific therapeutic action (eg. calm the nervous system, soothe the digestive tract). Our preparations are driven by the highest quality standards and used with the utmost attention to safety. The intention with any formula is to promote and support your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
