Natural Beginnings Herbal Dispensary
As a passionate herbalist of 16 years, I believe in the amazing healing power of Nature’s Pharmacy – the herbal medicines which nature provides to complement the body’s innate ability to heal itself.
The Natural Beginnings dispensary is well stocked with over 100 herbal tinctures that can be blended into countless combinations to suit your individual condition.
It is highly advisable to have a consultation with Virginia for complex and/or long standing health conditions. These can be done in the clinic at Caringbah or via Skype. However if you want something straight off the shelf for simple or acute health complaints, then contact Virginia for quick service to pick up or post a herbal blend to suit your condition… or see below to order the following Natural Beginnings Herbal Blends.
Whenever possible I use the alcohol free tinctures which taste more pleasant, however some individual herbal tinctures may contain a small amount of alcohol – much of this alcohol can be evaporated off by adding boiled water to your blend. Please let me know if alcohol is a concern for you.

Natural Beginnings Herbal Blends
Ingredients: Fennel Seed, Fenugreek, Goat’s Rue, Shatavari.
The BoobyMilk Booster is a blend that has helped many women boost their milk supply when it has dropped, as it contains some of the best galactagogues available.
(It is important to note that milk supply is dependent on supply and demand so it is advisable to feed your baby on demand, especially in the first 12 months of life. Milk supply also depends on adequate nutrition, including protein, and water.)
“I used Virginia’s ‘Boobymilk Booster’ herbal formula to help increase my milk supply during the first few months after birth, as I felt the supply had dropped off from the initial amount (ie. my breasts were not as large and full of milk as I thought they should be). I really struggled getting used to breast feeding, it was painful and not enjoyable. But I stuck with it and once I mastered attaching my daughter correctly so feeding wasn’t painful, the formula assisted me and my daughter to get into a routine where my supply was regulated by her demand. I realised you don’t need big breasts to feed successfully, my body knew what my daughter needed. I breast fed for 13 months and I’m really glad that I was able to give my daughter a good start in her life.”
When I started having some issues with my milk supply being low a couple of weeks after birth, I once again turned to Virginia for advice and she provided me with [the BoobyMilk Booster] tincture which quickly helped boost my milk supply, and I haven’t had any supply issues since!
Ingredients: Echinacea Blend, 5 Mushroom Blend, Elderberry, Manuka.
The herbs contained in the Immune Restore blend are well known to stimulate the immune system and fight off illness. It has been very effective in helping clients overcome recurring colds and flus.
For more specific symptomatic relief during an acute cold or flu, you may want to team the Immunity Power Booster with a blend to address either the upper or lower respiratory system. Call or email Virginia to order one of these.
“The Immune Restore tincture has been my saviour preventing me from doing what I would have previously done as a last resort – take antibiotics! I had a throat infection that wouldn’t budge but going with Virginia’s advice, I tried the tincture and the throat infection was gone withing two days! My Husband at the same time went and got antibiotics and took those to only find the infection came back a couple of weeks later. After seeing how effective the tincture was for me and during an extremely busy and overwhelming time in my life, I decided to start taking the tincture on a regular basis and also offer it to my near 3-year old daughter who will take it sometimes too. Since then we have gone through numerous times of household sickness and we have either not gotten sick or have had reduced duration and severity of symptoms. Truly amazing for me to discover that natural really does beat the meds! What a gift the Immune Restore Booster tincture has been for me and my family!”
Raspberry Leaf Tincture
Ingredients: Raspberry Leaf Tincture
Raspberry Leaf is a traditional herb used to tone the uterus in preparation for labour and birth. Traditionally drunk as a tea, the tincture is a more concentrated form which reduces the amount needed while still tasting pleasant, so that a small “shot” diluted with a small amount of water or juice is all that is needed per dose. The Natural Beginnings clinic has been supplying this effective herb in tincture form to women in Sydney’s south for years due to local midwives recommending it to their clients, and many of these women are now requesting it for their subsequent babies. Virginia is now compiling a survey to ascertain just how beneficial it is during the labour and birth process.
