early '90s, our eldest daughter started a Native American crafts
business. We all lent a hand in preparing a booth for her first
street fair. Since she hadn't spent years building inventory, we
needed to bulk up the booth. After further research, we decided
to add herbs for sale. This was a natural progression from our mutual
love of gardening and fit in very well with the philosophy of the
I fell in love with
this section of the business and when it grew too big to share a
booth with her items, we split it into a separate entity. We began
with Native American herbs and those used by the Celts (to honor
the heritages of the children). What was very interesting is how
similar herbs are used for similar purposes. We came away from this
discovery appreciating how very small our world really is and how
alike we really all are.
As you can see, we sell
herbs on this site. What we don't do is raise the herbs that we
sell. There's only so much you can do in our little yard. This is
where we grow and try out the herbs that we can. But there is no
way we can control the quality nor achieve the quantity required.
We can't even grow all of what we use and so buy from other sources
for our personal use. And, of course, some of the herbs that we
use simply don't grow around here.
What we also sell are
some herb seeds. We encourage everyone who has the room and the
physical stamina to grow their own herbs. While we currently don't
have many, we will continue to search for reliable vendors and fill
out the list as best we can.
We are affilates of Amazon.com
and offer the path to them to purchase herbals and other informative
books. We cannot possibly provide all of the information necessary
to support you in your herbal endeavors so we do encourage you to
build your own reference libraries.
We only buy from reputable
vendors who control the quality and strength of the herbs as well
as their handling and storage procedures. We buy in small quantities
in order to maintain the highest freshness and viability. We currently
offer 75 herbs. In the future, we plan to offer more but right now,
we'd like to focus on rounding out all of the features that we plan
to provide with the current selection. And we will be paying a great
deal of attention to the requests of our users.
