If you’ve been browsing the internet and looking into holistic health and wellbeing, you might be wondering how to get all the materials and wondering if you have to make all your oils and extracts yourself. This is not the case. There are places called Holistic Pharmacies or an Herbal Pharmacy that can provide you with the experts to ask for help and the items to start your journey.
What To Look For in an Herbal Pharmacy
Like with many pharmacies, do your research first. You want to look up the pharmacist in charge of the establishment. They will often have a website to tell you about the professionals and products.
Always visit the pharmacy before you commit to them. Here are a few things to check out when looking around:
Look at the ingredients of products. Make sure it’s all natural with no fillers or chemicals
Ask questions. This will test the knowledge of the experts as well as help you find the proper products.
Look at what else they sell. You want a pharmacy that is focused on herbal and holistic methods.
Look at the non-herbal products, are they cruelty-free, vegan, and limited waste? This will separate the real and the unreal.
An Example of A Great Herbal Pharmacy
In my town, there is a wonderful herbal pharmacy that is filled with cruelty-free, vegan, no-wate products. It’s called Remedy Holistic Pharmacy. Let’s talk about why they’re a great example of an upstanding herbal pharmacy.
Professional Website: When you find them online and visit their site, you can read about what they stand for, where they are, and what they provide right on the homepage.
Friendly Environment: This is an establishment filled with down-to-Earth people who want to help you get healthier and happier.
Resources: The pharmacist is available regularly. They have an herb bible filled with the holistic herbs and plants, how to use them, and when to use them. They also have signs and descriptions about their products so you can understand them.
Samples: For the lotions, makeup removers, oils, etc. they have little samples for you to try. They also have their other items like no-plastic razors displayed so you can get a feel for it and actually see the product.
Bright Aura: Walking into Remedy, I felt so bright and light. Just being there made me happy and ready to be healthy.
These are the things you should have in your herbal pharmacy. They are all important. You don’t want to hate going in or feel intimidate. This is where you go to find things that make you feel better. So choose carefully.
How To Find Pharmacies
That’s easy. This is one of those times where the internet really is your friend. You do a quick Google search and find the closest one to you then work from there.
If, by chance, you live in a small town and finding an herbal pharmacy is not easy, look online. You’ll find a lot of online pharmacies that you can look at.
Choosing A Good Online Pharmacy
Shopping online is tricky, especially with herbal remedies and such. However, here are somethings to look for in an online herbal pharmacy:
Is there a chat box? You need to be able to ask questions rather than guess. Check for a contact me section, a number, or a chat option.
The most recent reviews. Many sites have Google reviews and product reviews. Look at the most recent ones to see if they are the time to improve based on feedback or if they respond to reviews. If those responses are promises to do better or an apology, this is a good thing. It means they care.
Product descriptions. Check out a few products and look at their ingredients. Make sure they’re legit and even check out the product reviews. Do that research.
Is there a sample option? Some sites will include the option of trying out samples before purchase. This isn’t a requirement but it does say a lot about how the feel about their products.
You don’t have to make everything on this holistic journey. It’s not bad to buy products so long as they’re the right products. Hopefully, I’ve made it easier for you to find herbal pharmacies online and on the streets. You deserve the best products after all.
