  1. Great Herbs & Packaging 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2018

    I don't know too much about herbs but I do prefer to get my herbs here. They are always nicely packaged. The packaging has a re-sealable bag if you wish to keep them in the bag. I use my herbs for remedies and tea and these are perfect.
