I just got my order from Pacific Botanicals with my herbs for making tinctures (yay!). As I look at it I am hoping that I got the right stuff. I went over this before I ordered but now that I am seeing it I wonder. Not sure what I expected it to look like but I want to check.
Echinacea Angustifolia — Organically Grown Dried Root
-It looks kind of like chopped up gravel. It is hard like the root in small pieces
Echinacea Purpurea — Organically Grown Dried Root
This looks a little like mulch? Woody looking
Valerian – Organically Grown Dried Root
This looks like a bunch of really small stems
St. John's Wort – Wildcrafted Dried Flowering 3-5" Tops
This seems to be almost like loose tea. Before I ordered they told me this was the herb and flower, everything above ground.
Sorry to ask about these again. Just want to make sure what I am looking at is alright!
