Herbal Free Clinic

We want to make our services available to everyone.

Some can’t spare the time for one of our standard appointments, or can’t afford to pay for appointments.

Recognizing this, we are offering short, focused mini-consultations, including one herbal preparation, free to all comers. This is your opportunity to talk with a practicing herbalist, share any health concerns you may have, and receive personalized education in the preparation and use of herbs.

The consultation and one preparation are free. Donations are accepted.

For these herbal free clinic days, we cannot schedule specific individual appointment times – everything will be first come, first served. If we have a high turnout this may entail some wait time. We expect the mini-consultations themselves to run approximately 20 minutes each, plus 5-10 minutes for preparation of herbs.


Please note: this is not a medical clinic. We are not doctors, we are not dispensing medical advice, and we are not diagnosing or treating any medical conditions. We are providing information and education from the perspective of traditional herbalism. The herbal preparations we provide are to be considered samples to aid in your personal investigation into the effects of herbs in your own body.

If you plan to come by, it helps us if you RSVP by filling out our contact form or emailing us at info@commonwealthherbs.com. Thanks!
