Hello. I thought it was about time I joined the blogging community. From time to time I’ll be posting my thoughts on herbal medicine and anything else that might take my fancy and I invite you to post your comments and ideas too. Most of you will have arrived here via Purple Sage Botanicals, my herbal information resource, but for those of you who are wondering who I am, here are a few personal stats:
My name is Christine Haughton and I am a Medical Herbalist. I live in a farmhouse on the Yorkshire Wolds with Smokey, a little feral moggy who recently decided to adopt me and who is now very much in charge. I spend most of my time on consultations with clients, packing up and sending out all the orders that come in (thank you!) and updating the website, but for a little light relief I spend a couple of days a week keeping up with my former career as an archaeologist with the Landscape Research Centre. In between all this I enjoy making my lotions & potions, collecting medicinal herbs from the beautiful countryside that surrounds me, listening to music, reading in bed, and avoiding housework at all costs.
Why don’t you post a message to introduce yourself!
