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 Pam. I am a midwife and I use the Labor Tincture.  It SO ROCKS!!   I have a friend who has trouble sleeping..... she says her own thinking keeps her awake.... do you have an herbal sleep helper?  I told her I would ask you because I was SO HAPPY with the Labor Tincture that you make.  Thank you for your herbal skills!  (Yes, we do!  Goodnight Combo Tincture and Goodnight Lite!)  S.S.,  LM, CPM
