Covid-19 Lockdown

In the current emergency we will continue to provide our herbs and medicines to our registered patients and online customers. The website will continue to operate for the general public as long as stocks last. We have closed the shop, and contact is only available by phone, email, and video conferencing for patients. We will be available on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. Herbs and medicines will be posted out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Thank you for your support!

I have been involved with Herbal Medicine for many years both as a manufacturer and as a Medical Herbalist. I trained at the University of Westminster, and am a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists. After several years in private practice I set up the Urban Fringe Dispensary in 2009. I am available for private consultations and over the counter advice.

I am training to be a Medical Herbalist whilst working the Urban Fringe Dispensary; I make many of the medicines and work on the shop floor. I can help with more common complaints, discuss any of the remedies we stock, or signpost you towards further advice. Feel free to ask for my help and have a chat.
