How to Buy Herbs From Home



If you have a hard time finding the herbs you need or just prefer to shop from home, use these ordering tips from Sharol Tilgner, N.D., a naturopath in Pleasant Hill, Ore., and Eric Yarnell, N.D., a Seattle-based naturopath, to get the best-quality products.

Watch for Red Flags. Be alert as you search herb catalogs and websites. If a company boasts miracle cures or products that heal every disease you've ever heard of, pass it by. Likewise, be cautious of any company that sells only one kind of product, like anti-cancer formulas. These companies are most apt to be a sham, Tilgner and Yarnell say.

Know What to Look For. Buy from a company that includes on its product labels Latin and common names of herbs, the strength of each herb (this appears as a ratio on liquids and as milligrams on capsules), and any warnings. Call the company for this information if the website or catalog doesn't show the label.

Start with These Great Companies. To get high-quality liquid extracts, bulk herbs, and capsules sent to your house, Tilgner and Yarnell suggest these three companies: Frontier Natural Brands (800-786-1388;; Herbalist & Alchemist (800-611-8235;; and Herb Pharm (800-348-4372; Or log on to, the website of the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA). This trade organization sets quality standards for its members that the FDA may soon require of all herb companies. The AHPA website offers links to companies that conform to its standards.
