About Us



The Little Herb Shoppe, established in 2011 to help educate the public to become knowledgeable herbal consumers who know what to look for in quality plant material. The more informed we are as consumers, the more we can demand from the manufacturers producing the medicines. Over time, we can help improve the overall quality of the botanical remedies available and the plants that give us herbal medicine are cared for and harvested responsibly to ensure their future as well as our own.

Here are some basic questions to ask to begin navigating the maze of herbal products:

Organic/Ethically Wild-crafted?
• If cultivated, were they grown organically?
• Were they ethically wild-crafted?

Quality control
• How do you know there is no adulteration?
• How does a company ensure that there are no heavy metals/pesticide residues in the plant material (this can be through testing, knowing where to harvest plants that haven’t been contaminated, cultivating one’s own using organic methods, etc.)?

How were the constituents extracted?
• Even though the plants may be ‘natural’ – some extraction processes involve harsh chemicals and solvents and are not at all natural. It can be particularly difficult to find out information about this – and confusing to try to interpret what company’s claim on their websites. Ask any company what processes they use or ask herbalists and practitioners you respect to recommend brands.

Social and Ecological Sustainability
• Are those growing and harvesting the medicines receiving a fair wage?
• Are the plants harvested in ways that enhance their long-term viability and health?
