Hey everyone, if you want to buy herbal stuff, buy it online from my friend herbivorous at livingearthherbs.com.

She's awesome and insanely trustworthy and honest. I'm always worried when dealing with "alternative medicine" about getting taken advantage of by some quack. It is so nice to KNOW someone and the training they went through (4 years of college-level herbal education including such sciency things as physiology and organic chemistry). To know they have a respect for science.

Sarah is one of the few people I personally know who is really progressively entrepeneurial. She went to school to learn a trade and now she's a partner in a small herbal business. Their store front is really friendly and cute. She's one of the few people I know who have this intense passion for their trade and a depth of knowledge and insight at her fingertips.

When we can't keep our money in our local community, at least we can keep it in our LJ community.

I highly recommend the "Salt Scrub "Invigorating", 10 oz " from the bath and bodycare section. Rub it on yourself. Rub it on your friends. Shower it off. Enjoy the glow. I just bought like 4 different bottles of massage oil.

That's basically I could see. I don't think they have the whole inventory online yet. Probably still have a lot of data entry to do.

But there were some books and some bulk herbs and some bath and body stuff and some tinctures.

Sadly no tea or vitamins yet.

Rub it on your friends.

I suspect some of my friends might enjoy that a bit too much.

Up until recently, any herbal stuff I bought was from a shop in Montreal as the DC area has no "independant" herbal shops-- Just the grocery store and Whole foods. There's two trader joes, though they're quite small, so this is excellent info. :) Thanks!

I'll massage anyone, anywhere, anytime. If they ask nicely. And they aren't Skanky or Gnasty.

I also bought a book called Herbal Erotica because it cracked me up.

Someday, when the getting some comes, as inevitably it will, I will be armed to the teeth with an arsenal of sexy weapons.
