Knot II Bragg Farm
Products Guide


From the wilds of the North country in Aroostook County, Maine, I am delighted to introduce you to some of nature's oldest blessings and to help you understand that nature holds us all gently in the palm of her hand.

I am a founding member of the Aroostook County Herb Association, and a 44-year practicing herbalist. I am pleased to share with you some of my family's herbal traditions.

Please use discretion and have the wisdom to know that not every formula works for everybody. Although my family uses all the formulas and I teach the making of them, you must consult a licensed practitioner if you have a problem.

This catalog is not designed to diagnose, treat, or prescribe in any way. The Knot II Bragg Farm or myself personally will not be responsible for your experience in using them. This catalog is meant to be a pleasant introduction to the power and beauty of the natural world around us. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer and thank you for allowing me into your life circle.

Sincerely,

Natalia Bragg, The Knot II Bragg Farm
