Coming Soon! The Herbalist on Capitol Hill March 17 2014
With 30 successful years in business, Tierney Salter brings an Herbalist store to Capitol Hill. The new location, at 19th and Mercer is slated to open at the end of May.
Salter believes that the new location will provide for a new type of store devoted to educating people about how herbal remedies can help supplement or even completely replace traditional pharmaceuticals.
“I’m all about integrating nature with pharmaceuticals, since some people do need pharmaceuticals, but you can certainly use herbs along with them to get healthy,” she said. “So the new location will be a very interactive, educational experience, where we give the people the information they need to make their own choices. That’s our vision for this new location.”
The Herbalist produces over 400 products in-house, with an unparalleled commitment to local, organic, and wild crafted herbs.
Salter says,“You need good quality for the good product for the good results. That knowledge has been embedded in me since I started, and while I’m sure you could make more money with lower quality, that’s not what we’re about.”
She said that, like the local food movement, local herbs are important, too.
“It’s the difference between going to a farmer’s market and getting your carrots there or going to a big grocery store and buying some that came from Chile,” she said. “We source a lot of our herbs from the northwest, we get them fresh, and we immediately process them. The quality is there, and I think that’s why we've been around for so long."
The Herbalist is excited to be a part of building our Seattle communities- Capitol Hill, here we come!
