Betty's Poems

Betty first put pen to paper and rhyme to reason in 2002, and it did her the power of good absolutely changed her for the better, she is fitter, stronger, more decisive and has achieved more..... It is why she is an ardent promotor of it and why she has put it all together in her special , not so secret, blend in Betty's extravaganza.

Her poems , are not really poems but the ramblings of a rose that cannot be pruned.

They are a tonic nonetheless and have all the natural properties of her ditties , like willow is to aspirin.  

All Betty's ingredients come from life's natural resources, some are grown organically and some have been cultivated and modified by a human hand that is not her own. 

You can pick them, dry them, keep them, let them infuse and imbibe them. The potency of Betty's pomes can be weaker or stronger than Betty's Extravaganza and it is your choice as to how much you take. 

Betty advises that if you do so, as with all Betty's tinctures, do it with an open. loving and healthy heart and a content soul, her writings have been known to cause periods of overwhelming anxiety and self doubt to those people who have not got these things. 

It can also aid the digestion to take them with a pinch of salt but Betty wants to make it quite clear that she bears no responsibility for the effects of her words on the individual. You are your own person. ;-)
