Sustainability Report

We are pleased to share our latest Sustainability Report. As sustainability is such an important component of all our decisions, it was front and center in planning and executing our move to the larger facility last year.

While developing this report, it became clear that the story of our journey from a company practicing conscious botanical sourcing to one that is hard core committed to zero waste environmental impact in all of our operations should be shared.

Look for a Spring opening!

We also plan to hold occasional community classes.

A few months ago, we launched the option for local customers to pick up their orders, which has been well-received.

Chasing the Winter Blues...

Deep in the heart of winter it can be more of a challenge to take care of our bodies and souls, which seems more effortless when the sun is shining and flowers are blooming.

Good News! We have the gifts of herbs that flourished last season to help us get through and support us in staying healthy and feeling positive.

What's New?

Updated H&A Logo

& BCorp Logo added

Don't be surprised if you notice small differences on our product label.

Many more people now know what being a BCorp says about a business and we're proud to say we became the first herbal products BCorp in 2010. 

What's Selling?

CEO Beth Lambert reports that we are seeing an increase in time-honored remedies for immune support like Echinacea. We’re also seeing increased demand for women’s stress formulas.

What's Discontinued?

We have had to make the tough decision to discontinue Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis). After an extensive search over many months, we have not been able to locate a source that meets identity confirmation through HPTLC testing by a qualified 3rd party lab. All have been found to be adulterated with other material. Our remaining supply of confirmed material will be used in our Sinus Support Compound™.

We have decided to stop making Bloodroot extract. Because there is very little demand for it, it makes more sense to use production capacity on extracts more people want.
