Leaves & Roots
This grower has a photo album.
Leaves and Roots is an independent herb business. We have been in Central Florida for over fifteen years. We carry the area’s widest selection of dried herbs and spices. We are not sourcing all of our herbs from Florida, but they are hand packaged in Orlando with love, and we are constantly expanding our selection.
What We Offer. . .
Bulk Herbs: We carry about 300 different herbs, mostly of North American and European origin, although we are constantly adding herbs from other traditions as they become popular.
None of our herbs are irradiated and we are beginning to carry more Certified Organic herbs, indicated by “CO” after the herb name.
We also carry herbs for diverse spiritual and ritual applications, from Frankincense and white sage to dragons blood. We consider the store to be “nondenominational”
Bulk Spices: We have about 40 different spices, many of which are used medicinally. As with the herbs, our spices are not irradiated. The herbs and spices are packaged in 1 ounce, 2 ounce, 8 ounce and 1 pound increments.
Herbal Tea: We offer black teas and green teas plus a selection of medicinal herbal tea blends. Our teas are sold in bulk, not in tea bags.
Ginseng: We carry Asian Panax Ginsengs — Korean white, Korean Red and Chinese Red – and American Ginseng. Siberian Ginseng is in the Herb list under its proper name “Eleuthro Root”. Ginseng is available in powder or capsules.
Capsulized Herbs & Formula: We carry empty gelatin capsules and vegicaps to capsulize the powders, but we also have major herbs and medicinal herb blends already encapsulated.
Herbal Extracts: The Herb Pharm brand of extracts is considered one of the best (if not THE best) in the country. We are proud to carry most of their products.
Essential Oils: Of our 100-plus different aromatherapy oils, most are undiluted, top grade essential oils. We also carry a few oils in the 5th pressing, which are not top grade. The top grades of those particular oils are extremely expensive and this makes oils such as Jasmine, Neroli, Chamomile, Ylang-Ylang and Vanilla more affordable.
We also carry fragrance oils (meaning synthetic) and essential blends.
Incense: We carry a wide selection of incense sticks in brands such as Nag Champa, Superhit, Gold Statue, Spiritual Guide, Morning Star, Presade and HEM Indian incense.
Aromatherapy Supplies: Our customers tend to do-it-themselves so we do not carry many ready-to-use beauty products. We have most carrier and massage oils like Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Hemp and Jojoba plus specialty items such as Shea Butter, Lanolin, Beeswax, and Cocoa Butter. Plus we have clays: Bentonite Clay, Fullers earth and Red Clay.
Soaps: We offer a full selection of Natural soaps such as Dr. Bronners Magic Bar soaps and Pure Life Soaps plus Chandrika and Nag Champa Soap.
Containers: We have glass oil bottles from 5/8 dram to 16 fluid ounces, salve jars, small metal tins, plastic squeeze bottles, recloseable plastic bags, spray bottles, beakers and eyedroppers.
Books: With few exceptions, our books are limited to those dealing specifically with Herbs and Essential Oils.
