Poet Natural Therapies, based in Perth Western Australia, was created by Toni Lorraine, Medical Herbalist and Holistic Counsellor. Toni shares her knowledge and experience through teaching small groups at her home, making gentle medicines, flower essences and sharing interesting healing modalities.

Every day you can commence to make a difference to your health. Past illnesses, traumas and environment may have weakened the body. Using Earth medicine, iridology and gentle conversation, you can reconnect and transform your life.


Herbal Medicine

Within a consultation, a case history is taken to consider your health concerns.  Iridology is explored to validate and support the findings.  Any existing medication is documented and considered to ensure safety.  Only then are   herbal remedies created to suit YOU.

Toni Lorraine’s commitment to sustainable sourcing means no endangered or undocumented herbs are used. Bespoke remedies, creams, ointments and lotions are created at her clinic using Australian made and locally sourced ingredients where possible to minimise the carbon footprint caused by packaging and handling.


Iridology allows a trained practitioner to view the physical and psychological health of an individual. The sclera, iris and pupil all give indications of genetic strengths and weaknesses, as well as past, present and probable health issues.

When looked at under magnification, the fibres of the eye show evidence of whole body.  Iridology charts are divided into several zones which correlate to certain areas of the body. Using a holistic approach, the iris is examined in conjunction with a personal case history to confirm the findings.


Learn how to wildcraft and manufacture your own creams and ointments safely.
Make tea blends, poultices, and oils using what is in your own garden and pantry.
