Learn more about our herb sources


Increasingly, people are interested in learning more about the sourcing of the things they put into their bodies. This is a good thing! It is even more important when the substances in question are supposed to help you. You don’t want to unintentionally take something that will make you feel worse!

At Watershed Wellness, we work with the most attentive, well-educated and ethical herb distributors in the United States and Australia. These companies are run by people that I know as colleagues and friends, who all share a fastidious passion for bringing the highest quality Chinese herbs to the world.

Very rarely, when something is out of stock, we will have to do business with another company. But we always hold them to the same high standards, and if we cannot find the herb we need from a company we can trust, then we simply don’t carry that herb. Such is often the case, for example, with Panax ginseng, also known as renshen.
