Sara Fotheringham – Master Herbalist
Sara started making herbal remedies with her great grandmother as a child. The smells of herbs and tinctures quickly became the smells of happiness and contentment. The act of helping others while honouring the earth stirred in her a passion for herbalism.
Over the years, Sara has used her skills to help those in need within the community. The more she helped, the more she realized how the need in the Greater Niagara Region was only growing, and thus, the idea of Niagara Medicinal Herbs was born.
Sara returned to school and completed her Chartered Herbalist Diploma. She then began putting the wheels in motion for NMH.
Her dream is to serve her community, educate people on nature’s healing powers and inspire others to take up the herbal path.

Why Natural Medicine?
Society is changing, and humanity is moving away from the pharmaceutical industry to embrace natural products for better health and wellbeing.
As consumers, we’re becoming more aware of what we put in our bodies. This is making us question our shopping habits and where we get things from.
It’s time we return to our roots and begin working with nature, instead of against or outside of it. The earth naturally provides thousands of cures, treatments and preventative products derived from herbal medicine.
The practice of herbalism works to use these natural ingredients, and turn them into safe and effective treatments for you. At NMH, our skilled Herbalist uses only organic herbs sourced locally to make our incredible products.

“The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the health or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way.”
