Behind the retail counter are over 250 kinds of bulk liquid herbal extracts from which products that are specific to clients’ health needs are custom-formulated. For example, Singer’s Saving Grace® was created while working with performers at the Santa Fe Opera. Once a formulation has been tested and approved, the manufacturing process begins. At Herbs, Etc. each herbal medicine product starts with fresh or dried whole herbs. Most of the herbs are grown on family-owned certified organic farms. These herbs are grown throughout the United States in the climate and ecosystems in which they thrive. Herbs, Etc. is also a certified organic manufacturing facility.
