Storage of your Herbal Products


Herbal products come in many forms - teas, tinctures (liquid extracts), capsules, tablets, compresses, poultices, salves, creams, baths, footbaths (to name a few!), and of course, used in foods!  Here is how to care and store some of the most frequently used forms of herbal products:

Dried Herbs

If possible, store your dried herbs in a glass container, which will keep them fresh longer. Using dark glass will help to further keep light out, which ages the herb more quickly and can compromise its quality.  A dried herb should appear vibrant in color and have a wonderful smell to it.  Even though it’s dried, it should have an “alive” vibrancy to it – you should be able to sense the life in it!

Testimonial

Hi, I just wanted to tell you that the Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend really works!  I was in a panicky situation last week when I had a minor tooth implant operation and after that, my milk supply was suddenly reduced to a trickle.  I called the lactation consultant, and she recommended Herb Lore's Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend.  I took it and the next day my milk supply came back!  I am so grateful!  I am glad that there are companies like yours who are dedicated and committed to helping pregnant and nursing mothers!  Thank you!  L.L.
