While we may grow or gather some of our herbs and wild plants locally, this is not the case for all of them. The rest are purchased from favored vendors with whom we’ve done business with for over seven years now. We also purchase oil, wax, alcohol and so on, not to mention bottles, tins, labels and other marketing products.
Therefore, due to unpredictable market changes and supply chain issues, the prices and items listed in our catalogue are subject to change, and some items may not always be available.
We are still and always a home-based business. Thank you for understanding and for your continued business, it’s the reason we do what we do.
