Alternative Healing

What's in the Little White Balls?

You may have heard of Homeopathy as an alternative medicine, but did you know how common it is? Homeopathic medicines are used around the world by millions of individuals and are used in treating a wide range of acute and chronic conditions from headaches, coughs, sore throats, allergies, asthma, eczema, arthritis, chronic fatigue, to anxiety, depression, insomnia and much more.

Owners of Botanica Bazaar, Leilani Bishop & Bethany Mayer have used homeopathic medicine their whole life and continue to do so within their families. 

What is Homeopathy and how does it work?
Homeopathy is a gentle way of treating illnesses based on the principle of like cures like, and has been used clinically for more than 200 years.
Like cures like implies that what will cause symptoms in a healthy person will trigger the cure of a sick person with those symptoms. It is a sophisticated system of using highly diluted substances as “remedies” to trigger the body’s self healing power by stimulating a precise reaction in the body against the symptoms.
For example, when you peel an onion, you feel burn and itch in the eyes, you may also have a runny nose. If you have similar symptoms during a cold, then a homeopathic micro-dose of the remedy called Allium cepa, made from red onion, can help to trigger your body to heal.


The Homeopathic Remedy Kit was assembled on the recommendations of well-trained homeopaths and 144 years of Washington Homeopathic Products experience. It contains 50 of the most commonly used and recommended 30c homeopathic remedies. The kit includes a very handy carrying case containing remedies packaged in 1/2 dram bottles, as well as an insert booklet with a brief introduction to homeopathy, directions on how to use homeopathic remedies, and a section on selecting a remedy by symptom. Voilà! Homeopathy made easy :)
