Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Laurie Neronha discuss the following:

  1. Herbs have been used throughout antiquity for health and healing. I know your specialty is skincare, so could you share with us some ways we can take advantage of their benefits for our skin?
  2. That sounds pretty simple. What proportions of herb to water do you recommend?
  3. What are some other ways to prepare herbs for use on the skin?
  4. Now that you’ve told us some ways to use them, can you tell us which herbs we should use?
  5. Do you have any other favorite herbal skin care tricks?

Summary: Get yourself a good book on herbs! 2 suggestions: Don’t be afraid of herbs, they are amazing healers, but they are not a substitute for medical care. If you see signs of infection in your skin, go to the doctor!
