I’m a huge fan of Mountain Rose Herbs and will often share referral links to buy herbs or herbal supplies at their online herbal apothecary.

I also love Oregon’s Wild Harvest products. I’ve toured their farm and am so impressed by their whole approach. When I buy herbal capsules, they are often the first company I reach for. I’ve linked to their products on Amazon and want to let you know that I’m a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program.

By viewer request, I’ve also linked to my books on Amazon. You can also find my books at your local book seller or anywhere books are sold.
