The Aloe Tree, Ennistymon, Co Clare

This issue owner Tessa O’Connor and sales assistants Nadine Healy and Jenny Quinlan, nutritional therapists Poppy Wilson and Jenny Keane review immune support, carob drops, a seaweed bath, cough solution and herbal teas

1. SEAWEED BATH

Tessa says: “The Seaweed People from our town have been doing hand foraged seaweed baths for years which have great results, especially for eczema. Their essential oil-infused baths are a nourishing treat.”

2. IMMUNE SUPPORT

Poppy says: “I find Nature’s Plus Tri-immune great at keeping the winter bugs away – working in a health food store I come in contact with quite a few!”

3. HERBAL FIRST AID

Nadine says: “Dublin Herbalists All-Healing Salve is the most original product I’ve found which contains St John’s wort and arnica – it’s herbal gold! I use it for everything, every day!”

4. HERBAL TEAS

Tessa says: “Guru Tea House is a local company that is blending unique and full-bodied teas. The rooibos hazelnut is my favourite.”

5. COUGH SOLUTION

Jenny Q says: “Irish Botanica Botanical Syrup is a customer favourite and excellent at clearing annoying lingering coughs. A potent expectorant herbal formula is a remedy for any type of cough or chesty condition.”

6. CAROB DROPS

Jenny K says: “The Siesta Carob range which includes drops is great for those following a gluten/dairy/sugar-free lifestyle. It’s not chocolate, but it’s a great substitute – a couple of squares satisfies all my cravings. The mint is a must!”

7. OLIVE OIL

Tessa says: “El Greco Extra Virgin Organic Green Olive Oil is smooth and delicious. Even my three-year-old son wants to drink it from the bottle. I always have a bottle handy, even at work, to drizzle over any lunch time snack.”

1. IMMUNE COMPLEX

Orela says: “Dr Wolz KinderImmun is my go-to for under the weather kids, whether they pick up every little thing going or are recovering from a bad bout of flu or illness.”

2. ANGEL MAGIC

Bernie says: “I love Fairy Essences Angel Aura Spray because when I use It, it feels like a giant hug of love. It helps me and my kids feel positive, uplifted and safe.”

3. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

Doris says: “April Danann Fermented Apple Cider Vinegar is my get up and go in the morning. I’ve been taking it every morning for years for my immune system – nothing like it to prevent me from getting colds and flus.”

4. BEE SUPPORT

Helen says: “One of my favourite products is Bee Energised from Unbeelievable Health. It’s a combination of B vitamins, spirulina, green tea and more and keeps me going on busy stressful days.”

5. FACE SERUM

Marguerite says: “Kinvara Rosehip Face Serum is packed full of active ingredients and natural goodies, and also smells amazing. My skin feels softer and better hydrated. I love to use it before my foundation for a dewy look.”

6. MOOD BALANCER

Orela says: “Macanta Nutrition L-theanine and L-ornithine complex capsules are great for relaxing stressed nerves and bringing more balance to moods and stressful life situations. Better still, this is an Irish brand only available in health stores.”

7. SLEEP SUPPORT

Bernie says: “Me and my mam love One Nutrition Ocean Mag. It works wonders for her muscle cramps and helps me get a good night’s sleep.”

8. NUTRIENT POWERHOUSE

Doris says: “Terranova Life Drink is amazing. My whole digestive system does what it’s supposed to do when I take it. It’s my energising life drink and I wouldn’t be without it.”
