- Dried herbs. We supply a range of dried herbs for all your dietary requirements.
- Herbal Teas. We supply a range of dried herbs which you can use on their own or combine various herbs to create your own unique herbal tea blend. Some herbs can be infused in boiling water to make herbal teas (also termed tisanes). Typically the dried leaves, flowers or seeds are used, or fresh herbs are used. Herbal teas tend to be made from aromatic herbs, may not contain tannins or caffeine, and are not typically mixed with milk. Common examples include chamomile tea, or mint tea. Herbal teas are often used as a source of relaxation or can be associated with rituals.
- Herbal capsules. Herbal capsules are simple to make and convenient to use on the go. We sell vegan empty gel capsules as well as a selection of popular herbal capsules.
- Herbal Tinctures. Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts made by soaking the bark, berries, leaves (dried or fresh), or roots from one or more plants in alcohol or vinegar. The alcohol or vinegar pulls out the active ingredients in the plant parts, concentrating them as a liquid. Tinctures have been around for millennia and are a key component of traditional herbal medicine.
