Our ingredients are sourced from different parts of the world, where they grow in their most natural environment; that way, they are more active and vibrant and of the highest quality possible. We only source ingredients that are produced ethically and sustainably.
Why do you use glass jars?
We use biophotonic apothecary glass jars, commonly used within the pharmaceutical and homeopathic industry because they prolong the shelf-life of the herbs by preventing the harmful UVA light from degrading them. This way, the herbs last longer, and the taste and benefits are preserved.

When you refill your jars, wipe with a clean towel or hand wash them, making sure the label doesn't get wet and let the jar dry out thoroughly. The jars can be washed in the dishwasher, but it will remove the labels.
Can I keep the herbs in the refill bags, or do I need to purchase the jars?
Yes, you can keep the herbs in the bags as these provide good protection against degradation from air, moisture and light; however, they might not last as long as when stored in the violet glass jars. Always ensure to thoroughly close the bag after use and keep them in a dark and dry place.
