Hi everyone! Welcome to Olde Worlde Remedies, formerly known as Tartan Treasures and the home of the one and only My Little Fibro Helper product line!
I have been researching healthy living through natural methods. Herbal healing, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, eating healthier… you name it and I’m researching. I have started raising my own herbs and have been making healthier meals for my family.
So here I am. Studying “alternative” medicine. That phrase just makes me crazy. Let’s think about this, shall we?
- Dreamed up by pharmaceutical companies as a way to make a profit. Have you had to get a prescription filled recently? Holy smokes! More often than not, the drugs cost more than the office visit! I know many people who spend $300 to over $1,000 a MONTH for medications that their doctors have prescribed. How often have you heard of someone taking one medication to counteract the side effects of another one they are taking? Is that really healthy? I don’t think so.
- Peddled by physicians who get “incentives” from the drug companies to push their products. Now don’t get me wrong… I love our family physician. She is amazing. However, she is open to more natural forms of healing. AND she understands that we are not made of money when it comes to paying for prescriptions. She is a rare breed of doctor – one with an open mind.
- Approved by the FDA. Don’t get me started on the FDA. This is a federal governmental agency that approves products that MAY help with one issue but have side effects that can number a dozen or more and quite often, the side effects are far WORSE than the condition the drug is treating. How many times have we heard of drugs that the FDA approved that are now causing serious issues, sometimes even including death? You’ve seen those commercials about the class-action lawsuits. Should we really be putting our health into the hands of our government?
Now let’s talk about healing with plants and essential oils.
These are not new concepts. Through the ages, people have used plants and oils in healing. It’s only really been since the beginning of the 20th century, that these old ways have been pushed aside to make room for “modern” medicine. Sure, people may be living longer today, but what about the QUALITY of life they are living?
I am very excited that we will be offering a whole new line of homeopathic remedies, such as salves, lotions, balms and more. I am taking a course now to become a certified aromatherapist too and I can’t wait to use my newly learned knowledge to expand our offerings even more!
We offer a fantastic line of essential and fragrance oil-infused Lotions, Shower Gels, Liquid Soap, Herbal Therapy Packs and Shea Butter Body Bars. We have a great line of essential oil blends that alleviate a variety of issues too! We also offer Pampering Packs, which include two or more of these goodies. Be sure to check out this line in our shop!
*** Clarification on my beliefs – I am firm believer in using the natural gifts that God has provided us, but I also recognize there are times when we need modern medicine. I am extremely grateful for the professionals that we see for our journeys. Please understand that when I recommend natural remedies on my blog, they are wonderful for alleviating many issues. However, modern medicine plays an important role any time you are dealing with a life-threatening or lifestyle-altering illness or injury. Here is an absolutely excellent book that I recommend that really falls in line with my beliefs. Healthy at Home: Get Well and Stay Well Without Prescriptions
So let’s introduce you to some of our goodies, shall we? I hope you will take a few moments to check out the shop and share in this rich culture and maybe, just maybe, for a few moments you will feel like you took a step back in time.

And drinks bedside the fire,

And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.
