Thank You for 35 Years of Support!

Anniversaries are a time of reflection. As we celebrate Herbalist & Alchemist's 35th anniversary, we send a heartfelt thank you to all the herbalists, retailers and consumers whose trust in the quality and effectiveness of the herbal products we make & sell have helped us grow while never losing sight of David Winston's original mission.  
To achieve the practitioner quality of H&A products, made by herbalists from fresh herbs, requires a greater commitment than mass market offerings, costs more, and by its nature sometimes means a delay in some products being available. We know it's easier and cheaper to just sell powdered herbal products, and we are grateful to all of you for demonstrating commitment to H&A's superior quality.
Here's to the next 35 years working together!
Sharable Social Media Posts
We've had customers say that it would be helpful to have some materials to share with customers in newsletters and via social media. We're working on it-beginning with an anniversary overview of H&A. Feel free to cut and paste.
