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!

When our family begins to get the sniffles, I prepare a simple concoction of
the following in a small dish:
Drizzle ¾ cup of non-pasturized honey over the mix of fresh herbs and cover
with a lid. In a while, you will notice a runny liquid forming on top; this
is an extraction of the ingredients. Use this liquid as a cough syrup
throughout the day. Our colds do not usually last more than 2 days with this
easy and effective concoction!
or chamomile tea and add some of the above mentioned liquid along with some
freshly squeezed lemon juice. Non-pasturized honey can also be added to
taste. This tea works just like Neocitran without the use of drugs or

Split ends and frail hair can be drastically reduced by simply consuming Horsetail cut and/or powder. Also, weak and thin fingernails can be stronger and thicker after just a few weeks. The nutritional structure of Horsetail is well known as one of the best cures for such annoyances. Just add a bit of the cut herb to any tea combination. In a tincture, it would even be more effective. The powder can also be encapsulated, if you prefer. Continue usage even after you see improvements to make them more permanent.
Kelp would be our second choice as a nutritional powerhouse that can make a noticeable difference. Consuming both would be the best way to tackle it.
