Chinese herbs have been used for thousands of years. Chinese herbology accounts for the majority of treatments within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Like western herbalism and Ayuervedic medicine, Chinese herbalism takes a holistic approach. Chinese herbal medicine is often used alongside other treatments such as acupuncture.
In total there are around 6,000 plant species used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. At Herbal Apothecary we stock a wide range of Chinese herbs. We supply these plants as whole herb, cut herbs and powdered herbs. We also produce a wide range of plant extracts and herbal tinctures. Many herbs are also available as capsules. This is a convenient way to store and prescribe Chinese herbal treatments.
We source the highest quality herbs we can, from our trusted suppliers. Every product we sell is subject to a series of quality and safety checks. Some Chinese herbs are only available for sale to authorised practitioners. This is because of their potency/toxicity. Before purchasing restrictied herbs you will need to register an account with us. This process includes confirming you practitioner qualifications.
At Herbal Apothecary we undertake contract manufacture of herbal products for practitioners. You can find out more about our contract manufacturing service for herbalists here.
