Irish Botanica is an Irish owned company specialise in harnessing the healing properties of herbs and making them available to everyone. The company was developed by David Foley, an Irish Medical Herbalist in association with Naturalife, an Irish health food and supplement supplier. David began growing herbs and developed a strong interest in herbalism. He went on to train as a herbalist and become a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists before training and becoming a registered Chinese Herbalist. He now runs a successful practice, a health food shop and lectures in Herbalism and Chinese Herbalism. Irish Botanica provides a wonderful range of herbal and fungi formulas to cure common health complaints and illnesses. Their range of products includes Echinacea, Valerian, Throat Coat Spray, Reishi Mushroom, Maitake Mushroom and Cordyceps Mushroom. Their Echinacea, a natural treatment for colds and flu’s, and Valerian, an excellent herb for relieving stress and insomnia, are grown on an organic farm that holds a Good Manufacturing Practice Licence meaning the produce are of a high quality and safe for the consumer. All Irish Botanica herbs are grown using the bio-dynamic method developed by Dr Rudolph Steiner, a holistic approach to organic farming that works with nature using ethical and sustainable production methods that ultimately produce a higher quality, nutritious produce. Unlike other manufacturers, Irish Botanica uses only the root of the herb as this contains the essence, the most valuable part of the plant, which is then used to make the tincture. Their mushrooms range includes Cordyceps, containing anti-viral properties, Maitake, for immune support, and Reishi, an anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety reliever. Their Throat Coat Spray is a careful combination of herbs that soothe and protect the throat. All their products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
