What is an herbal apothecary


An herbal apothecary is a place where one can find various natural remedies, herbal supplements, and medicinal plants. An herbal apothecary can also provide consultations with a trained herbalist who can recommend specific herbs and herbal remedies to address specific health concerns or promote general wellness.


The role of an herbal apothecary is to promote natural healing using plants and herbs. The products sold in an herbal apothecary may include herbal teas, tinctures, capsules, and creams. The herbalist may also offer personalized recommendations for specific health concerns, such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, or digestive issues.


In addition to selling herbal products, an herbal apothecary may also offer workshops or classes on herbal medicine, gardening, and natural health. Overall, the goal of an herbal apothecary is to provide individuals with natural alternatives to conventional medicine, promoting overall health and wellness through the use of herbal remedies.

The Herbalist – Rachel Ross

Welcome to the New England Herbal Apothecary. I craft all my own tea blends, culinary herb blends, skin care products, and plant extracts.   I uphold the value of crafting to each individual's needs and will gladly work with you on what may help you best.  When I cannot wild-harvest or grow myself, I use reputable certified-organic growers for my herbs. Ultimately, I am here to educate you so you can start your journey of discovery and healing by spending time with the plants, growing them, and using them within your daily life as often as possible.

"To your health!"  Cheers!
