Interview: Jo Dunbar of Botanica Medica Herbal Apothecary

Jo Dunbar of Botanica Medica

In December last year, Medical Herbalist, Jo Dunbar opened her second herbal apothecary. We visited the beautiful old-world apothecary in Crown Road to see what it is all about.

What made you choose St Margarets to set up your second apothecary?

I have been going out with Martin Herdman (proprietor of The Herdman Family Carpet Shop_) for several years, so I have spent a lot of time in St Margarets. I opened my first herbal apothecary, in a tiny little road in Claygate, 4 years ago, and at the time, both Martin and his son Jacob said that it will never work there, and I should have opened in Crown Road. Well, fortunately the apothecary proved so popular that we have patients both locally and internationally. But there came a time when I started thinking of opening a second apothecary, and a large corner shop became available in Crown Road. Initially Martin spotted it as a second Botanica Medica, but after some thought decided to move the Carpet Shop over the road and completely renovate his shop to house Botanica Medicabeauty/200704050227.
