Herbal Pharmacy & Retail Shop
We proudly serve the Oakland and Bay Area communities. While many manufacturers close their doors to the public, we take great pride and joy in supporting our friends and neighbors with a retail store and herbal pharmacy. Urban 21st century living not only presents immunity, nervous system, and adrenal challenges, but also estranges us from the wild world of plants. We are honored to support the whole health needs of our community through our classes and field trips, in-store counsel, diverse product and practitioner offerings, and by connecting people to the caring landscape of herbalism.
All of the herbal extracts we produce are available in our pharmacy, making us the most diverse bulk tincture stop in the nation. Five Flavors Herbs is the only herbal pharmacy in the US providing bulk tincture direct to consumers calling on such a wide inventory of herbs. We are a Chinese herb store, bulk Western herb depot, and supplement shop. Our staff members’ expertise is as manifold as the herbs we offer, with knowledge spanning East Asian medicine, Ayurveda, naturopathic medicine, Western medicine, Western herbalism, Latin American folk practices, plant spirit healing, doula training, and Western alchemy.
We love sharing our knowledge and remedies with everyone who walks through our door and are thrilled to have a customer base that reflects the diverse community we cherish.
