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!  Your company's products have healed me during several times these past few years. Every product I have ordered and used has done exactly as it was intended to do and more! The first product I bought was Poke Root.  After my second son, I developed mastitis. The doctors prescribed me antibiotics which did nothing but mess me up more, I then developed DOUBLE MASTITIS!  And again they couldn’t help me. I was at a loss and through diligent research I found your company. Might I say that within a day my mastitis started to ease and by the 3rd day it was gone!!!!  Several years down the road I developed strep throat that did not respond to antibiotics either and all behold I took a day of Poke Root and by the 2nd day it was almost gone!  Now, fast forward to my 3rd pregnancy I developed PUPPS ;(  I went to 3 doctors that couldn’t help me. And then I thought maybe you could help!  And sure enough you had just what I needed!  The Healing Salve is divine!  I literally put it all over my body because I got the rash everywhere. It relieved the pain, burning, itchiness and dryness immediately! I apply it often because my skin is so damaged from 3 months of this!  And lastly, the Itch Relief tincture is working from the inside out on it. I sleep throughout the night now and don’t wake up from the horrible discomfort that PUPPS causes. My days are easier and I’m not grumpy anymore from the pain and discomfort.  No more tears for me!  I’m beyond grateful for your products, service and knowledge!  H.F.
