Announcement    A word about concentrated extracts.
There's been a trend in the herbal supplement industry that's troubling. It's called concentrated extracts. They're available everywhere and include almost every herb known. The theory is that isolating a single chemical constituent, the one identified as helpful, and extracting then concentrating it is more beneficial than taking the entire natural herb. I don't think that's true.

First, it's very misleading. People choose natural supplements to bring their bodies back into balance naturally. There's nothing natural about engineering concentrated extracts. It generally takes four steps: boiling, separating, dehydrating, and powdering. Yikes!

Second, they miss the point of herbs completely. Herbs aren't a single useful molecule surrounded by junk. Herbs are the whole package. Each molecule works with every other molecule in complex ways we still don't understand. Pull out a single one and it won't work the same, or as well, as with all the others.

Last, it's not environmentally sustainable. To take an entire crop of any plant and process it down to a concentrated extract not only wastes a huge amount of valuable plant material, it takes a lot of energy to process, usually coal for factories and gas for mass distribution.

Let's all think about why we take herbal supplements. I do because it's natural, it's sustainable, and it helps me adjust my body to maximum health. The last thing I want to do is add to the bad.

Thanks for reading.

Hand-crafted traditional herbal products prepared by an experienced herbalist.

Hi, and welcome to EarthWise Organics Herbal Remedies, your source for organic, ethically produced extract tinctures and capsules for natural health care. I hope your visit is pleasant.

About us
EarthWise Organics Herbal Remedies strives to produce the most effective, traditional organic herbal products available.

All EarthWise Organics Herbal Remedies products are created using certified organic herbs in small batches to order by me, an herbalist of 20 years experience. They are delivered in sealed containers for your safety and are hand dated on the label, an EarthWise Organics Herbal Remedies trademark. When you see that date written in the producer's own hand, you know you have the freshest, most potent herbal product available.

EarthWise Organics Herbal Remedies has completed over 5,000 transactions across three online venues and brings years of online selling experience to each and every order. You can be confident your order will be carefully packed and shipped with the same attention to detail your product was created with.

The nature of herbal medicines
I would like to take this opportunity to express the nature of herbal medicines. They work. Because they work, it's not something to experiment with or take lightly. Herbs can affect prescription drugs, be affected by underlying conditions, and they can have some unintended consequences. Herbal medications should be taken with the same care and caution as any prescription pharmaceuticals.

What makes them so much better than pharmaceuticals is the natural way they bring the body back into balance. Health conditions are complex and often have more than one cause. Herbs are perfect for acting on them because they are complex themselves. Unlike drugs that contain only one chemical element, herbs have many constituents that work together to restore balance to the system. Drugs often create more problems than they correct by dealing with just one issue of a multifaceted problem. Other drugs are often required to deal with them.

Our herbs
As an independent online herbal shop, we pride ourselves in high quality products. All EarthWise Organics Herbal Remedies items are made with certified organic herbs. We never use chemically processed, altered, or genetically modified herbs, so you can be assured what you receive is the freshest, purest, and most potent organic herbal products available.

All of our herbs are sourced from well-known American herb supply companies with excellent reputations. We've worked with these outstanding suppliers for years and are excited to share such exceptional quality herbs.

EarthWise usually ships in one business day, but it may take three. If there is a delay and we need more than 1 - 3 business days we'll contact you to let you know. You will also receive a tracking number for your order so you can see where it is at any time.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day.
