Welcome to Patsy's Potions

Patsy had her first encounter with the power of herbal healing at the tender age of 5, when a plant saved her life. She began an organic herb and vegetable garden in her early teen years and hasn't looked back since. While teaching Dutch to British and Turkish children in Holland, Patsy also taught herbal cooking and participated in the community herb garden there for eight years.

On her return to South Africa and with the help of the local Kempton Park Parks Department, Patsy established the first Community Herb Garden in the country. Soon after she joined the Horticultural Society and the original Herb Association of South Africa with the late Joan Lawrence Symons. Patsy became the Regional Representative for the HAoSA and received many accolades for her work, including Herb Lady of the Year and Cultural Lady of the Year awards.

She started Patsy's Potions 23 years ago and makes her own healing, beauty and culinary products. Stocks include aromatherapy oils, books,  natural ingredients and a comprehensive range of dried herbs and spices. She offers lectures in English, Afrikaans and Dutch on all aspects of plants and herbs. Patsy's Potions ongoing herb and herbal products course which includes lectures and workshops. It is now a 20 module course, 1 module a month at a cost of R300 per module.

Below is a list of the products offered from Patsy's Potions as well as a pricelist (in South African Rands). Please feel free to contact Patsy during office hours on 076 265 4948 or email Patsy at to place an order or to arrange to meet with her or join up for the 20 module course.
