In 1927 Hilda Leyel founded the Society of Herbalists, which would later become the Herb Society, with the aim of supporting the practice of herbal medicine in Britain.
The Herb Society aims to:
- Increase the understanding and use of herbs for health and well-being
- Provide information, knowledge and news on all aspects of herbs
- Bring together all those with an interest in herbs, from the amateur to the professional
- Provide a worldwide forum for the exchange of ideas and information.
