All change for herbal remedies

Since 1st May 2011, all herbal medicines on sale have needed a to be licensed.
This should ultimately lead to improved safety for all of us and we can have confidence in the products we choose to buy and take.

For the companies who manufacture herbal medicines it has meant some tough choices and a huge investment in order to decide which products to apply for licenses for.

Most people in Edinburgh will have heard of Napier's the Herbalists and many of you will have used the services of their herbalists and therapists or visited their shops.

What you may not know is that some of their products are now available in pharmacies - including Barnton Pharmacy. As a result of the changes in licensing requirements, Napiers decided to license some of their excellent products and also to make them more widely available through selected pharmacies.

We have had some excellent feed back on the products we stock. Here are just a few.

Napier's Sweet Dreams Herbal Remedy contains passion flower, Jamaica dogwood, valerian root, hops  and scullcap

It is great for those who have trouble getting off to sleep and is also useful if you get to sleep fine, but wake after a couple of hours.
There is no chance of addiction and you will have no residual tiredness the next day.

Napier's Elixir of Echinacea is another best seller.
Containing echinacea, fumitory and wild indigo it will help your body fight back from infection and relieve symptoms of catarrh in the nose and throat.
It is great to use when you have a cold.

We also have herbal teas including Napier's nursing tea which is great for breast-feeding mums and if you can't find what you are looking for we can generally order it in from Napiers within a couple of days.
