About Herbs

Plants nourish and feed us, add spice to our life, bestow health and beauty, scent and colour and brighten our days. They mediate love, hope and gratitude; they clothe and cleanse us, they heal and soothe our bodies, minds and souls. They touch every aspect of our existence, from our daily sustenance to the air we breathe, to the keys to other dimensions. They are the alchemists that turn sunlight into the green force of life, continuously revolving, restoring, rebirthing through the cycles of time. They truly are the greatest gift of nature, yet also the one we most take for granted.


Star Child’s range of botanicals derives from many regions and traditions around the world. We supply only the best quality ethically sourced cultivated and wild-crafted herbs, using regeneratively  grown and sustainably harvested sources wherever available. The more we demand organically grown and sustainably sourced herbs then the more readily they will become available. Your choice to buy and our commitment to supply herbs from regenerative sources is part of the driving force that sows the seeds for a greener, healthier future.

There are dozens of ways in which herbs can be used. Many culinary herbs not only impart a great flavour but also have subtle effect on the digestive process. Other herbs are more medicinal than culinary and can be used as remedies, based on the wisdom of age old traditional plant knowledge.
