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

We've used your Cold and Flu Tincture and your Quiet Cough Tincture every winter. The boys rarely get sick, sometimes they even skip a year, but when they do I know that if I have your product on hand we will be well before morning!  We always have your product on hand!  The Quiet Cough is simply magical - it has helped me put the boys to sleep and catch some uninterrupted sleep myself. So very grateful for you!  DG
