About Us

When we were growing up, herbs were like tomatoes. We grew them. We put them up for the winter. We used them daily, and gave concoctions away to other people in need of them. My mother was always teaching us. If we were weeding the garden, she would talk about which weeds were herbs and what those herbs could do. She instilled in us a passion to learn and create.

By the time I (Shoshanna) was 13, my family started the Bulk Herb Store. Quite a few years have passed since then, and my wonderful husband James and I now run the Bulk Herb Store together. Our son Jeremiah James helps pull your orders. At four years old, Jeremiah already can go outside, gather herbs in the wild and know what they are good for. He doesn't even know he's growing into a little herbalist, but he is!

At the Bulk Herb Store we provide our homemade concoctions, our experiences, and the tested wisdom of others. We want to do more than sell quality herbs. We want to teach you what we know and inspire you to learn and research beyond that. You can write to us here. Happy herbaling!


From our Mailbox

Hi, just wanted to drop you a quick note - "you guys" have the best ever
website devoted to herbs and their many uses. I am soooo grateful I found you. Plus, your prices are very reasonable, shipping is next to immediate and the herbs are always fresh. I recommend you to friends all the time. Thank you for being here for us!

I know you cannot administer medical advice but you do provide good
information and other sources to check on information. I believe you help us to good health and perhaps even saving a life or two along the way. In my home, I believe herbal therapy has kept my husband alive and kicking where one of his MD's almost killed him!

Thank you again, Jaye


Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
