We believe quality ingredients and traditional processes are essential to creating safe, reliable, quality herbal products.
Herbs for Natural Hope Herbals products are naturally grown or wild crafted. Herbs that are best tinctured fresh are grown on our certified organic farm or shipped overnight from organic growers and wild-crafters across the United States, to ensure the freshest herbs possible.
As a FDA registered facility, Natural Hope Herbals is currently, implementing production policies and procedures, in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices standards (GMPs) for every step in the manufacturing process, from raw material to finished product. These policies and procedures ensure that our products meet our quality, safety and purity standards, and enable us to track products from store shelf back to individual ingredients.
Our products are all handmade in small batches and packaged and labeled in our professional facility. We use a traditional extraction method called maceration, which means soaking the herb, in the extracting liquid, known as the menstruum, for a number of weeks. Organic grain alcohol, kosher vegetable glycerin derived from palm, distilled water and organic apple cider vinegar are used as extracting liquids to tincture our herbs. Herbal infused oils and salves are made using fresh and dried herbs in a base of organic, unrefined olive oil.
Extraction processes for each herb, based on traditional knowledge and scientific research, are used to ensure Natural Hope Herbals products contain a broad spectrum of the herbs natural goodness. Some herbs are best extracted fresh, others are more concentrated when the herb is dried before tincturing. Certain herbs extract best with a low alcohol percentage and for others, the sought after compounds are only extracted with a high percentage of alcohol. A few herbs require special processes such as cooking before tincturing to extract water soluble compounds. Natural Hope Herbals uses specific processes and menstruums to best extract the properties of each unique herb.
With quality ingredients, attention to detail, and traditional methods, Natural Hope Herbals offers you quality products at reasonable prices.
