What is a Melding?
Meldings are the creation of Sarah Atkinson (Medical Herbalist) and Jane Alexander (Energetics Practitioner) and are a combination of herbal tinctures – prepared using the plants which grow in Sarah’s garden and wild in the area, Willow water and organic alcohol – with the channeled vibrational energy of the plants.
The world ‘melding’ is a Middle English word which means ‘blending’ which seemed to capture the essence of the Meldings themselves.

What do they do?
Simply put Meldings interact with our whole being. They work a little like herbal tinctures and a little like the food we eat because the plants themselves have been chosen for the specific effect they have on the physical body. They also work a little like flower or Reiki essences, because they are energetic in nature so they exert influence on our subtle energy system too.
Taken mindfully, you will notice the immediate change of state that they bring, rather like what you might experience after meditation. As a result, they can be useful taken when you are feeling overwhelmed by a particular emotion or situation. Taken over a longer period of time, they can support you to make long term changes.
What Can Herbal Medicine treat?
Herbal medicine can treat almost any condition that patients might take to their doctor. Common complaints seen by herbalists include skin problems such as psoriasis, acne and eczema, digestive disorders such as peptic ulcers, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and indigestion.
Problems involving the heart and circulation like angina, high blood pressure, varicose veins, varicose ulcers etc. can also be treated successfully as can gynecological disorders like premenstrual syndrome and menopausal problems, also conditions such as arthritis, insomnia, stress, migraine, and headaches, tonsillitis, influenza and allergic responses like hay fever and asthma. Qualified herbalists know when a condition is best seen by a doctor or another therapist.
