Plant medicine is the oldest and most widely used form of medicine in the world today. Our knowledge and methods are based on the combination of traditional wisdom and current scientific research. Herbal medicines are extractions prepared solely from plants and can be dispensed as liquid extracts, essences, tablets, capsules, infusions and topical preparations. Herbs and other medicinal plants may also be incorporated fresh into your diet as therapeutic foods.
We believe whole food nutrition provides the foundation of good health. A constant variety of delicious, nutrient dense food is essential to restore and maintain good health. Each one of us has a unique genetic make up, history, body, habits and philosophies. Nutritional therapy will be a vital part of your Holistic Heath plan.
At the Wellington Apothecary you will be viewed as the unique individual you are. Herbal and nutritional remedies, as well as dietary and lifestyle recommendations are customised to suit your health concerns, goals and budget. Talk to our in store Herbalist or Naturopath for free practitioner advice 7 days a week or contact our practitioners online.

Chantal is a registered herbalist and naturopath, she graduated from Wellpark College in 2009. Her understanding of illness is that it is a sign of dissonance not only within the body and the mind, but also within relationships and the wider social web. Her study of anthropology expanded her perception of wellness to include ancestral and cultural influences - the stories that either inhibit or allow access to a deeper experience of connection and wholeness. Through the lens of tantric yoga philosophy she sees illness as an opportunity to discover our capacity to regenerate, our connection to the natural world and our infinite resource of energy. She utilises bespoke herbal tonics, plant essences, yoga practices, and tarot as a tool to address the deeper realms of the psyche. Chantal is currently residing in the Coromandel region teaching yoga and writing our online resource ARTICULATE to share her experience and knowledge with you.
