FAQs

What is the shelf life of bulk herbs?

Shelf life varies from one herb to another. A powdered herb will lose its properties much faster than a whole or cut herb. Those with volatile oils like peppermint will lose their freshness much sooner than those without the oils. Roots have the longest shelf life as they are much denser than flowers and leaves.

So, it's kind of difficult to give you a quick and simple answer. Most herb books have something to say on the subject, but they are not very specific. Just as we did, you will gain insight in this area as you get more familiar with each herb.

What is the best way to store bulk herbs?

In general, keep the herbs in air-tight containers, as cool as possible, and don't expose them to light unless in use.

Which is more effective - tea or tincture?

Teas and tinctures both have their individual advantages.

The potency of most herbs is much greater in a tincture. However, a tea can be immediately prepared and taken.

Also, a tea often has an immediate soothing or invigorating aspect to it (depending on the herbs used).
