Holistic herbal havens

No, not that kind of herb. Since we try to seek out nature’s best for staying healthy, it makes sense to seek out nature’s best remedies when we’re not, to assuage the mind or body when they’ve gone awry. Praise be to the Bay Area, because you’re in the right spot for herbal shops and holistic apothecaries scouring east and west for practices and homeopathic products that heal without chemical harm.

Herbs, spices and tinctures to take in (along with plenty of white sage to cleanse the atmosphere outside of you) are readily available at the following BARTable herbal shops where apothecaries remain devoted to long-revered botanical wisdom for culinary, physical or spiritual uses.
