All the herbs described below grow on the Great Karoo farm Theefontein where Oom Johannes and Antoinette live, and can be used in different combinations and measurements to heal and relieve a wide range of ailments. Antoinette says there is a herb for every ailment but not all of them are listed here, so feel free to phone her with your queries.
The herbs are harvested, dried and packed on the farm and directly bought by phoning Antoinette between 5pm and 7pm on weekdays at 023 416 1659 (farm), or 083 273 9659. Prices of herbs are available on request and are generally not more costly than most conventional medicines.
Herb stocks for about three months, and a recipe of how to use the herbs correctly, will be posted at the end of the month following payment into their account. Banking details are available on the ‘contact us’ page or can be obtained directly from Antoinette.
Other home remedies and tips are available on the Home Remedies’ page.
