Natural supplements and herbal medicines are a popular alternative to orthodox medicine. In many cases herb and fruit supplements have traditional evidence-based efficacy, for example natural remedies for depression such as St John's wort and natural supplements to aid weight loss like artichoke.

Herbal remedies can assist with a wide variety of conditions in the form of natural supplements for PMS (vitex agnus-castus), anxiety (avena sativa) and insect repellents (neem), amongst others.

Ranges of natural treatments for conditions such as bruising and head lice with natural remedies like arnica and tea tree can also be found in the natural skin care section.
