What will you find at the Herb Shop?



HERBS - We carry over 150 bulk herbs, (see list below) from alfalfa to yarrow, but if we don't have what you're interested in, odds are we can find it.  We believe that certified organic herbs are safer and healthier for you. This means that the herb you intend to consume hasn't been sprayed with toxic pesticides or other harmful chemicals. In the few cases where we can only find wild-crafted herbs, we only call upon herbalists who are known to harvest ethically and sustainably.



TEAS - We offer a nice selection of bagged teas and herbal tisanes, as well as a number of loose tea blends.  Brands on our shelves are Pukka Tea, Numi Teas, Stash Teas, Prince of Peace, Ajiri Tea, Davidson's Organic Teas, Zhena's Teas, plus a few of my favorite Yogi and Traditional Medicinal teas.  Many are caffeine free, but there is a good selection of regular teas as well.



SPROUTING SEEDS AND SUPPLIES - From Alfalfa seeds to 
Red Clover, Handy Pantry sproutingseeds are organic and viable!  We have the seeds plus the sprouting jars that you'll need to sprout your own fresh, crunchy sprouts in less than a week.  We also have information to help you grow sprouts successfully.  




ESSENTIAL OILS - Add the simple pleasures of aromatherapy to your everyday life with Aura Cacia's unparalleled selection of essential oils and ready-to-use skin care products — formulated from 100% pure essential oils, to provide true aromatherapy benefits for the mind, body, and spirit.

A good article to read is here.  This discusses some safe practices for using essential oils.  Essential oils are strong plant medicine, so please use good common sense when applying.

A new article about treating essential oils as the sacred plant oils that they are can be found here.  Truly worth the read!

Hey!  We carry handmade salves and balms for boo boos and sore muscles!


SOAPS - Dr. Bronners Magic Liquid Soaps, locally made soaps, specialty soaps, Rose and Sandalwood soaps, Scrubby soaps, Itch soaps, we've got a lot of different soaps that are made for many different purposes.  All are either certified organic or are
 made locally using natural ingredients, including plant based oils and NO Petroleum!

We also feature handmade soaps from Ella & Tess, a small sustainable business that takes pride in using pure ingredients and practices.  Lynn is based in San Antonio, Texas.  Did you know that essential oil based soaps are healthier for us and good for the skin?  Yes they are!



*PLANT TINCTURES - We carry simples and formulas that may help many people, such as a tincture for relaxing or a tincture that encourages you to sleep.  The truth is that most formulas need to be developed especially for you, the individual with specific needs.  What works for one person may not work as well for the next person.  We are all so very different!   And we can figure that out for you.

At Wild Thyme, we offer ethically made tinctures by several local small businesses, plus some of the products by Herbalist & Alchemist, my teacher's company.  We also now carry Earthwise Herbals liquid herbal extracts.  If you are making your own products, we have dropper bottles for you to use for your  own tinctures.  1 oz and 2 oz, plus 4 oz jars to keep your dried bulk herbs in.


*We must also include the following disclaimer:  "These statements are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, and have not been evaluated by the FDA.  If you are taking prescription medication, or are pregnant or nursing, consult your health care provider before using using herbal products."  Many herbs have been used for millennia as healing products, its just that the FDA doesn't recognize them because they aren't able to control the thousands of plants that are out there. 




TEA POTS & GADGETS - Along with mugs with basket infusers to make your tea in, we have several options for infusing in a regular 'ol mug.  Tea balls, paper filters, stick infusers, squeeze infusers, and more.  Making it more fun for you at your tea party!


INCENSE / SMUDGE STICKS - What herb shop would be complete without incense or smudge sticks?
What are smudge sticks?  A very brief explanation for you:  "Using a smudging tool is part of many Native American traditions. The burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification is also common practice among many religious, healing, and spiritual groups. The ritual of smudging can be defined as "spiritual house cleaning." In theory, the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy." taken from an article on About.Com by Phylameana lila Desy


MISC ITEMS - UNIQUE AND INTERESTING TOO! -

Kava Chocolate bars.  Get your Kava the sweetest way possible! " It's the best of both worlds, Kava and Chocolate.  We take all natural Vanuatu kava root and mix it with high quality organic artisan chocolate to make the best chocolate bar you have ever experienced.  In today's hectic world we are bombarded with unhealthy choices and chemicals that are harmful.  Why not reward yourself with something good?
