  1. Fresh & Fast 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2018

    Shipment arrived a little sooner than I expected; we're all the way to the right and up (Maine) and Elbe's all the way to the left and up. :)
    From the look and smell,the Lungwort was obviously as fresh as dried herb can be and upon brewing my wife's traditional "Lung Tea", proved potent as well.
    Site and product both highly recommended!
    Side note: My father-in-law is Austro-Hungarian so my wife and daughter were both "Maus" growing up. :)

  2. Excellent quality 5 Star Review

    Excellent product and fast shipping. Very good quality, which is important to me, since I'm using it for a tea for my lungs.

  3. Long wait 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Dec 2014

    Although I had to wait 10 days for my shipment to arrive it was worth it. Fresh herbs, packaged well and contained a little something extra for the additional time I had to wait for my herbs to arrive. Other than having to wait for delivery I would recommend this company because of the communication efforts and customer support.
