The practice of ayurveda holds fast at the core of Herbal Destination, put there by a trio of female owners who use the philosophy of traditional Indian medicine to enhance their clients' lives through natural skincare products, healing supplements, and a yoga DVD. The store's herbal-care solutions include a paraben-free muscle oil rub and soothing Stress Hrx pills, and all of the offerings are formulated and blended at advanced facilities in India. The eco-conscious factories reflect the healing spirit of Ayurveda by boasting gardens that shelter endangered herbal plants, where dedicated gardeners protect the flora and gently shape them into polar bears and Sumatran tiger topiaries. Each Ayurvedic formula contains a mixture of three or more herbs and arrives sealed in blister packs of 60 soft gels or capsules to maintain freshness and potency. Customers who opt to focus on their skin can try the store's all-natural, four-piece skincare line that pampers skin with an apricot anti-wrinkle night cream, an herbal moisturizing cream, a deep-cleansing scrub, and a cucumber eye cream. As part of its commitment to sustainability, Herbal Destination's team wraps all products in eco-friendly and recyclable packaging.
