The top 10 herbs their uses and personalities


Many years ago while Sean was still studying to become a herbalist, he listened to famous Meath herbalist Sean Boylan say that he only used a total of nine go-to herbs in his practice.

When he started his practice near Blarney in Cork, he had over 40 herbs in his practice medicine cabinet.

While he occasionally uses different herbs, the Cork herbalist has whittled his number down to 10.

He will explain why he uses these 10 both for their medicinal properties and explain what type of personalities go with these 10 herbs.

Some of the herbs are considered weeds in your garden but maybe you will have a different view of them after his talks.
