A field of herbs is like nature's drugstore, full of remedies and curatives, and a great place for bored teens to loiter before they're old enough to drive. Shake your herbs free of angsty adolescents with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of goods at The Herb Store in Southeast Heights.
The Herb Store furnishes proponents of natural living with myriad plant curatives, candles, aromatherapy, and other apothecary goods acquired through eco-friendly practices. The proprietress, Cristy DeLozier, is dedicated to treating the environment with the same respect due to a wizened elder or a Legends of the Hidden Temple winner, buying many of her herbs from ethical wildcrafters who emphasize leaving minimal environmental footprints. For farm-culled products, DeLozier visits and vets her suppliers, choosing organic operations whenever possible.
In shop, the botanically curious can avail themselves of the fruits of her efforts, perusing a variety of herbal teas ($1.50–$3), incense ($1.50–$10), handmade soaps ($3–$6), and homeopathic remedies ($5–$10). Natural henna kits ($5–$15) are perfect for decorating the body before a wedding or festival, or for embellishing a recently shaved pet with taunting designs that resemble fur. The knowledgeable staff is always on hand to answer any questions pertaining to the offered herbs and their uses, and the store carries a selection of educational literature on the subject of natural remedies.
