I have been going to Herbarium for years and years. I fully trust the staff and their knowledge of their products is superb. they are extremely helpful and if they do not know the answer they will research it out and get back with you. If they do not have a product you are looking for they will order it and let you know when it is in.

I'll be back! Frequently I might add! The gentleman that assisted me was fabulous and extremely knowledgable! I learned so much in such a short visit! So many items to choose from as well. My experience at the store was completely and totally beneficial and I can't wait to go back! See you soon for sure!

Very nice shop and very nice people who run it. Everything from herbal supplements, to herbs in bulk, to wonderful homemade soaps.

Prices were very high, customer service was great, cute little place. The $17.95 little bottle of something for colds & sinus problems has not helped.

From Our Editors

When Kathleen Duffy founded Herbarium in 1978, she'd never worked in a shop before. Luckily, a tight-knit network of friends and family were on hand to support her. An aunt donated a cash register, and a cousin with retail experience taught her to use it. After Kathleen learned from trial and error that 5 pounds of herbs could fill a small container or an entire bathtub, depending on the plant, friends begged her to buy a calculator to use while ordering supplies. Eventually, even her customers pitched in, offering everything from suggestions for organizing the store to calligraphy labels for the bulk herbs. As her business took off, Kathleen—a former critical-care nurse—became more and more curious about how herbal treatments worked in the body. She began studying constantly, testing out new cures on herself and her family, and taking classes everywhere from the Gaia Institute to Harvard Medical School. In 1990, she turned over the shop to her daughter Andrea to focus on her studies full time, earning her certification as a clinical aromatherapist in 1999. Today, Kathleen still takes time out of her hospital-teaching schedule to personally train all of the staff members at Herbarium. Under Andrea's attentive eye, these herbal gurus guide customers through shelves stocked with aromatherapy products, potpourri, bath salts, and glycerin soap as well as natural remedies.
