Women Healers of the World:
The Traditions, History & Geography of Herbal Medicine
Our whimsical "Teacup Tree T-Shirts" feature a playful design with colorful dangling teacups, herbie teabags, and colorful flowers under a bright blue sky. Designed by Vineyard artist Tara Reynolds. On sale while supplies last.
Our wonderful face care line, Grace Your Face, is now ready! We've had such a great time designing and testing these incredible Facial Cleansers, Clay Masks, Hydrating Serum, Toning Spritzer and Bath Salts!
As always, we use premium (and even edible!) ingredients and nothing is tested on animals; many of the new Grace Your Face care products are even vegan! go here to get more details on these truly natural and nourishing products.
We are a family-operated, award-winning professional apothecary supplying top-quality herbal medicines and body care products.
We train herbalists, providing apprenticeships, internships, and certification programs.
We teach and lecture nationally, and we lead fun educational workshops, retreats, and learning opportunities for corporations, nursing programs, herbal conferences, libraries, schools, etc.
Herbalist and author Holly Bellebuono speaks and teaches about natural health, herbal medicine, self-empowerment, and women's empowerment.
What makes us different? You can feel good purchasing from our family-operated business because:
We are NOT a second-party packager!
At Vineyard Herbs we painstakingly plant, cultivate, harvest and process the vast majority of the plants we use in our salves, syrups, liniments, vinegars, tinctures, glycerites, and some of the plants we blend in our original teas. We craft most of our products FROM SCRATCH using time-tested original formulas created by certified and traditional herbalist Holly Bellebuono. You can trust the Vineyard Herbs label to be premium-quality, family-grown, and unique.
Every product gets Holly's seal of approval.
We've spent more than 18 years learning what you want from your natural medicines: every single product is hand-made, hand-inspected, batched and recorded for quality assurance.
We use NOFA Certified Organic and wild-harvested ingredients whenever possible.
We grow and harvest most of our own herbs in our apothecary gardens and in the pristine fields and woodlands of our island, but those we can't are sourced from reputable, fair-trade growers and from companies who sell locally.
We practice what we preach.
We train apprentices and interns in the art and science of herbal medicine. We are members of United Plant Savers, Northeast Herbal Association, and the American Herbalist Guild.
We keep our packaging to a minimum.
We do not engage in the wasteful practice of using excess boxes to contain a jar, or boxes to contain a bag. We use minimal packaging and we re-use shipping materials when we ship to you. (In fact, we have only 1 product that uses an outside box to contain a jar--the Grace Your Face Hydrating Serum. Compare this to companies that use cereal boxes, pasta boxes, salt boxes, lotion boxes, and other extraneous packaging materials to hold a bag or jar. We try our best to use less!)
We are more than just an apothecary.
Author and instructor Holly Bellebuono teaches nationally and engages in community partnerships that educate, inspire and empower others. Her books are powerful resources for herbalists and healing arts practitioners. She also offers consultations, workshops and classes where you meet others who are also seeking a more holistic approach to medicine and a deeper connection with their community.
Holly trains others to continue the work.
Holly trains others and grants two types of herbal certification. She directs one of the most unique curricula in natural health: The Heritage & Healing Herbal Studies Program and confers Certificates in Herbal Formulary as well as a Community Herbalist Certification. Expand your expertise with confidence. For individuals and groups, Holly teaches harvesting, processing, good manufacturing practices, entrepreneurial leadership, community herbalism, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, natural and women's health, positive self-empowerment, and more.
Our mission is to provide highest-quality herbal medicines, teas, and body care products while educating about and advocating for natural health and women's empowerment. Thank you for supporting this family business!
Whereas The Essential Herbal is a great kitchen-craft guide to making all sorts of herbal remedies and understanding the Essential Thirteen herbs, the new book -- The Authentic Herbal Healer -- is a slightly more advanced exploration of herbs from all over the world, with both traditional and clinical insights into their use and chemistry. The new book also contains a detailed materia medica with more than 130 herbs, a thorough glossary, and guidelines for dozens of edible wild plants.
Hailed as "an inspiring and powerful treatise, " "warm and open" and "fascinating."
I frequently hear that this book is now the one-and-only herbal medicine-making book people keep on their shelves.
It's written for the passionate spirit who wants to delve into a few herbs and get to know them intimately. The 13 Essential Herbs I introduce here are those that I turn to again and again for their protective, nourishing and strengthening qualities, and these are the familiar herbs we all have access to. Chock-FULL of recipes that can easily be made in the kitchen, from herbs easily found in the garden or backyard: tinctures, infusions, decoctions, syrups, honeys, vinegars, oxymels, salves, oils, salts, powders, and so much more.
