More about us:

Sue Clarke has been interested in Essential oils, herbs and natural products for many years. She has looked for healthy ways of dealing with many ailments which do not necessarily need a general practitioner for healing to be encouraged.

Christine Andrews has been interested in nature and reducing her carbon footprint for many years. She knows that learning never stops and so continues to increase her knowledge of all herbal related issues.

More about our business:

Essential Herbal Products was an existing company for a number of years before we took it over at the end of February 2010.

Since then we have gained much experience and have become ever more excited about living more naturally.

We started off selling dried medicinal herbs which have been organically grown in Southern Africa, and pure steam distilled essential oils and mainly refined carrier oils from the UK.

We now continue to use our original suppliers, but have added other local South African suppliers, and added some South African pure steam distilled essential oils and cold pressed carrier oils to our stock.

Our aim is always to supply good quality products.

We have also formulated some of our own creams (skin relief and arthritis relief) using local herbs, which we have infused ourselves, and adding them to a base cream together with essential oils.

Our range of tinctures are produced by ourselves using a ratio of 5:1.

We have also produced a small range of spiced herbal teas. These are created for enjoyment and each has the added advantage of specific health benefits.

We have been agents for the “Meridian Herbs” herbal pet care range for a number of years and this range has now been extended. Please see our pet product list under the Pets heading.

We are overjoyed when customers  come back to us for herbs, oils or pet products. Many have been satisfied by the quality of our range, others have experienced health benefits from using the herbs or oils on themselves or their pets.

  1. Morning,

    Can I ingest the Frankincense pure essential oil?

    I bought it at the shongweni farmers market yesterday.

    Kind Regards

    1. Hi Nomsa. The essential oils are all grown organically, but are not certified organic as this is an expensive process which has to be repeated yearly.
      They are all 100% pure and therapeutic grade.
