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, and again I just want to tell you after 4 years of going to the doctor to get pregnant, I started drinking your Pre-Conception Tea for a couple of months and I finally got pregnant!  I strongly believe that your tea helped me balance my body to conceive better than all of that medicine I've injected myself with for that long 4 years.  I just want to share my child's picture. I have never met you (spoke to you on the phone though), but I truly believe that you helped me realize this little miracle!  Thanks! M.L.
