About Organic Herbal Remedies
We love life and we love herbs! Organic Herbal Remedies Ltd was started in 2008 so that you know the herbal remedies you buy are 100% produced from organically produced ingredients. No artificial fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides are used to grow our herbs. None of our products are GM or irradiated. All our own label dried herbs and tinctures are Soil Association certified and all the manufacturers we retail are Soil Association certified. (There are a few products where we cannot currently source Soil Association organic and these are clearly marked with the EU organic certifier).
Organic is important because our herbal tinctures are very strong concentrations of the herbs active compounds. Our herbs are extracted in organically produced pure grain alcohol because that is the most efficient method of extraction gaining the synegistic benefits of the whole plant. As the dosage levels are very small (typically 2 or 3 millilitres per dose) you do not need to worry about driving or children taking our products.
In our current range most of the products have a herb to pure grain alcohol ratio of 1:3 and 1:2. That means for every 3 litres of pure alcohol and water there are the active compounds from a kilo of dried herbs. So a typical 100ml bottle has 33.3gms of herbal active compounds. Some of the products in our range are 1:2 (50 gms) and Goldenseal is 1:4 (25gms). Some are made with dried herbs (they are stronger than fresh herbs as fresh plants are mostly water) while for some products (where it is best) we have used fresh herbs. See individual products for details.
The herbs we use are sourced from around the world to meet the high standards of the UK Soil Association. Not all herbs can be grown in the UK but over half of our range is sourced locally and we mark those bottles with a Union Jack to denote 'low herb miles'. The bottles identify the country (or where more than one country is used region) where the herbs are sourced from. We will be developing our product range to increase the number of herbal remedies available. .
Our aim is to be an ethical company that our customers can rely on and trust:
We only do Soil Association organic
We don't do pills and capsules in our own label range
We don't do plastic bottles in our own label range
We don't do bubble wrap. We use organic popcorn for some packaging!
We do care for our customers
