About Us

Our Story

Brighton Apothecary was opened in July 2014 to offer a local herbal dispensary that could be easily accessed by people in Brighton.  We are a team of fully qualified Medical Herbalists who are dedicated to making herbal medicine available and affordable to all.

With this is mind we came up with the idea of a free mini consultation to meet simple health needs.  We use our knowledge to blend a remedy to help support your wellbeing.
