herb sanctuary

My name is Lesley and I am passionate about herbs and natural healing. I would like to welcome you to my sanctuary, my place of tranquility and healing.

After forty years as a teacher it was time to move on, so I packed up and relocated to beautiful East Lothian. I am now recreating my beloved organic herb garden. Some of my most precious plants came with me and, like me, have settled into their new home. Many more have been started from seed and cuttings and as my new borders and beds evolve, they will take their places. The development and growth of a new space is not a speedy process and this site will grow with the garden, over time, celebrating the beauty of the herbs and their many uses - both culinary and healing,

New learning over the past few years has enabled me to practise several healing therapies and each of these have their own page on this site. I hope to add more therapies as time goes on.
