Testimonial

Hi Herb Lore!  On the 29th of April I gave birth to my little man - my 5th child!   My last birth was 8 years ago. My placenta took its time in coming out at that birth, and a little piece was left in there causing an infection, so I was a little scared of giving birth to the placenta this time round.  And of course the after pains!!  I was dreading the after pains being that this was baby number 5!  (Quite frankly, I find birth much easier than the after pains.)  So about 5 minutes after giving birth to my son, I took the Placenta Release Tincture. I also delayed cord clamping until placenta was born. I was taking the tincture every 5 mins. Once I took the 4th dropperful, my placenta was out!  Fully intact!!!  Happy Chappy I was! :)

Now for the After Pain Relief Tincture!! That’s stuff is BRILLIANT!!  As soon as I had a little niggle I took a dropperful. NO PAIN!!  And I mean NONE!!  The nurses kept coming in asking if I needed any pain relief, and were dumbfounded that the tincture was the only thing I was taking!!  I had every nurse in the maternity unit coming in to see the wonder juice “Herb Lore After Pain Relief Tincture! “.  So a massive thank you goes out to you and your wonderful tinctures! I would have been lost without them. xx  M.C. - one of our sweet UK clients.   (UK hospitals allow herbal tinctures, aromatherapy and homeopathy in their hospitals and healing clinics.  Isn't that awesome!)
