Becoming an entrepreneur is often a daunting task. We speak from experience! It takes a lot of hard work, confidence, and dedication (a little fearlessness, drive, ambition, and energy never hurt, either!). A business built on the production and sale of herbal products is no different. It requires unique knowledge about the products and herbs being sold, their traditional and modern use, and an understanding of laws and regulations governing the handling, use, and selling of herbal supplements and cosmetics. There are many regulations in place to protect you as a business owner. Many of these same regulations are there to protect the consumer, your customer.

We’ve crossed a few bridges and have come out on the other side with the necessary tools and hard won knowledge that we would like to pass on to you.
