There is an absolute joy and child like wonder that awakens inside when we discover that hedgerows are full of wild herbs, and those wild herbs are full of medicine.

Until the mid 1900s, harvesting wild herbs and plants for medicine was an essential aspect of everyday life. For every ailment this offered a remedy and the knowledge created a healing bond between man and nature.

Lisa Guinan is a professional and well renowned Irish Herbalist. She has a private herbal practice and has been actively teaching herbal medicine skills since 2008.

Irish Herbal Roots offers guided herb walks to explore the native healing plants, tucked away behind the ancient stones. Traditional Irish medicine and folklore are both woven through this experience.

Also offered are workshops on the art and craft of natural medicine making. Lisa demonstrates the entire process from wild herb harvesting to final product. Skin healing balms, muscle and joint balms, cough bottles and immune tonics are some of the herbal products that can be made.

Lisa can be booked privately for a walk, a workshop or a combination of both. The experience can be tailored according to personal interests and requirements.
