Many of you browsing our website may have noticed that our botanicals are sold with a disclaimer that states: ‘sold as a bulk botanical ingredient with no directions or claims’ and wondered why that is. The simple answer is that we do not carry many ‘natural health products’, but rather we are primarily focused on bulk botanicals and the research of their multipurpose uses. We, as a company, cannot provide you with any retail directions or claims regarding unapproved preparations or uses for any bulk botanicals we provide from our online store. Upon making a purchase, all customers must agree to our Terms and Conditions. Any buyers found violating these terms will be politely refused.
Incredibly, there are many versatile uses for botanicals, aside from traditional teas and poultices made from herbs that we carry. Botanicals have been used for thousands of years for a wide variety of reasons, which include: making safe insect repellants (like peppermint oil), fragrant soaps (like lavender), candles, ceremonial uses (such as sage smudges and incense), art dyes, textures, and more.
According to the regulations outlined in Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, technically you cannot buy or sell many herbs and botanicals for consumable uses, placing a long list of herbs and bulk botanicals into a ‘grey area’. With this ‘grey area’, a company cannot market them, or make claims about them without FDA approval. The end result is that over 40,000+ products have been pulled from the shelves of natural stores. Due to this Act set in place circa 1994; we as a company abide willingly alongside these laws, legislation, marketing, as well as product verbiage.
