Testimonial

I would highly recommend Herb Lore and www.herblore.com to anyone looking for a knowledgeable resource and supply place for herbal products.  I have very little knowledge when it comes to herbs, but as a midwife, I much prefer this natural alternative.  All of my questions and concerns were listened to - they were very patient and very helpful.  I now keep on hand her Labor TincturePlacenta Release Tincture, and the Anti-Hemorrhage Tincture.  At the very first birth I took these to, we waited for the placenta for quite some time.  I finally gave one dose of the Placenta Tincture and not ten minutes later, the placenta came - with no problems and no extra bleeding.  I have a lot of clients who refuse any kind of allopathic treatment, and I'm thrilled to have these herbal products on hand and Herb Lore as a knowledgeable resource for those cases when I really need the extra help!    Sharon - Colorado midwife
