Our Herbs

Over the years we've naturally gravitated towards product suppliers who meet rigorous standards based on chemical-free ingredients, ethical sourcing, and a commitment to low environmental impact and sustainability. This has led us to two trading houses who supply organic products, as well as FairWild harvested, from around the world.

We will not compromise on quality and organic integrity for our herbal blends and individual herbs, and both our suppliers are inspected and approved by leading third party organisations that range from Soil Association organic certification to BRC, Fairtrade and FairWild.

A full list of the accreditations they hold – including copies of the certificates - can be provided on request; see below for the full list of certifications.

In addition, they routinely carry out analysis on their product range using a risk based system for the following:

• Pesticide residues
• Microbiological load
• Mycotoxins
• Heavy metals
• Essential Oils
