Best Place to Buy Bulk Herbs Phoenix 2010 - SW Herb Shop and Gathering Place
If you're trying to track down comfrey to soothe a bruise or valerian and dandelion root to combat an attack of the PMS Avenger, SW Herb Shop in Mesa has the herb you need. No, not that herb — SW's are strictly legal. Rows and rows of dried plants are stacked alphabetically in old-school glass apothecary jars on shelves throughout the historic house. Want strong hair and nails? Try nettle. Feeling weak? Steep some echinacea. Allergies making you look like streaky-eyed Courtney Love in her grunge phase? Move out of state. Or talk to trained herbalist and resident mother hen Kathleen Gould, who'll help you clear up your breathing troubles with the shop's minty Breathin' Easy tea or an elderflower, goldenrod, and orange peel blend. Whether you're at SW Herb to buy or just say "hi," grab a cozy seat by the brick fireplace and Gould will pour you a free cup of whatever herbal remedy is on tap that day.
