Bulk Medicinal Herbs?

I'm looking to buy bulk medicinal herbs. Marshmallow root, slippery elm, that sort of thing. (I can forage some on my own, but others I need to buy.) Suggestions? I know medicines are regulated and you can't sell them in grocery stores... I see a lot of bulk grocers...

Re: Bulk Medicinal Herbs?

A health food shop would have larger bags, and could probably order large amounts for you. In German speaking areas, look for "Reformhaus" but be careful: eating too much might be poisonous!

Re: Bulk Medicinal Herbs?

Okay, thanks - I will try to ask at Muller Reformhaus in Basel.. they are pricey but maybe they can get me bulk herbs cheaper. They also don't speak any English, but I'll do my best! And don't worry, I have a very healthy respect for the potency of plants. :-)

Just curious if you ever found a good solution? Was Müller able to order for you? Thanks for any insight!

Re: Bulk Medicinal Herbs?

Hello,

Yes, I was able to find what I was looking for just a few doors down from Müller Reformhaus, at the Chrüterhüsli. They not only have herbal tinctures/extracts, but they also have bulk dried herbs both in the store and that you can order. (I had to order Usnea barbata). Sadly, they did not carry soil based microbe probiotics, but then again, those are also hard to find in the US..

Good luck!

Thank you! I don't think there is a shop like that here in Zurich but it looks like they ship which is great. Thanks for the great info, super helpful.

Re: Bulk Medicinal Herbs?

You could also try calling and asking them if they know of a similar shop in Zurich. (Then you wouldn't have to pay shipping!)

Re: Bulk Medicinal Herbs?

I get all my herbs and herbal teas and spices from Wurzmeister. I know the owners and Tania speaks English. You can also visit their website at wuerzmeister.ch
Good luck!
