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

Thank you so much for providing the After Pain Relief Tincture to the public. I recommend it to everyone I meet having a baby, and never want to have another again without having it handy. That's how helpful this is!  I have seriously bought this to gift to my sisters for each of their babies for the last couple years. No one, especially a 2nd, 3rd, 4th time mom, should have to have a baby without your After Pain Relief Tincture! If your customers think that this praise is a little over the top... It's not!  I'm from a big family. (13 kids)  I'm on kid #3, and I plan to have this tincture by my bed for each and every baby in the future.  Thank you!  E.L. (Mom of 3 - so far!)
