In our book How To Start, Grow, & Monetize A Successful Herbal Business I teach to look for these four things when sourcing their dried goods:

  1. Look For A Certified Organic Seal
  2. Sustainably Wild-Harvested
  3. Tightly Sealed Packaging
  4. Fresh Color, Scent, Taste

After purchasing or receiving your herbs, be sure to take them out of their packaging, transfer them into dry, clean, glass jars with airtight lids.

Label them: Name, scientific name, date, expiration, and store them in a dark, dry, cool place away from heat, moisture, and sunlight to preserve and prevent them from molding.
