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! I bought your Dandelion and Nettle Tincture to use with my daughter who was suffering with awful allergies. You’d be happy to know that this tincture has allowed my daughter to be ear infection free since December!  She would get these so often, but now even if she gets sick she does really well and bounces back quickly. I use your Cold Comfort Tincture and Echinacea Tincture with both my 3 year old daughter and my 9 month old son. My husband and I use it as well and we have been quite a healthy family in the last couple of months! I am very grateful for your herbs. Thank you so much.  A.S.
