We live in an age of pharmaceuticals, where everything from antibiotics to sleeping pills are doled out like candy. Yet, there are dozens of top-notch herbal apothecaries across the country, full of safe and effective plant-based remedies.
When you’re searching for an herbal medicine it’s important to consult an expert who is steeped (if you’ll excuse the pun) in herbal science. These five top-tier herb shops are all staffed with practicing herbalists—some with degrees in botany—to advise you on which tea or tincture would work best, whether you're looking for natural beauty treatments, herbal remedies for insomnia, or anything in between.
