The preparations below are formulated and blended at the clinic, from plant ingredients wild crafted from the Derrynane Clinic's garden or sustainably harvested from wild areas of south Kerry. Plants that aren't readily available locally are sourced from reputable organic suppliers.

Treatments come in form of:

  • Tinctures - plants macerated in an alcohol solution - that are taken multiple times a day with a little water.

  • Herbal teas - dried herbs to be steeped in hot water before drinking.

  • Skin ointments and creams - plants infused in vegetable oils / water to apply directly to the skin.

  • Herbal syrups and vinegar tinctures may be an option when alcohol isn't appropriate.

These core formulas have been generated to suit most people,  and may also be tailored to the individual as needed, based on the outcomes of a consultation.
