Hello & Welcome To The Herborium!
We are passionate about using Traditional Chinese Herbs as food therapy and strive to make positive impacts on your life with Chinese herbs and tips.
My husband and I are first generation Australians and whilst we have grown up loving sunny beach days and won’t accept anything less than a good quality coffee (a large, almond flat white to be exact), we have our Chinese culture and values also deeply embedded within us. We are so excited to share with you what "the herborium" has to offer.
Chinese herbs demystified and simplified.
Ever wondered what those floaty ingredients were in your herbal soups? They may look a bit funky, but your body sure loves them.
We have brought to life "the herborium" to share how you can reap the benefits of common Chinese herbs. While we aren’t TCM practitioners ourselves, we are committed to sharing and growing our knowledge and value the teachings from the experts around us.
Nourishment made easy.
When my husband and I moved out of home, there were certain dishes we needed to master. Soup was first on the list. Cooking herbal soups is a preventative and restorative practice that has been embedded in our lives and culture. When we saw the less-than-ideal-quality and range of herbs available in supermarkets, which were frequently accompanied by poor English labels and strange names, we felt privileged to have grown up with the quality herbs from my father's TCM practice. We want everyone to be able to access quality herbs and understand it's benefits.
"the herborium" offers conveniently packaged herbal blends with simple, no-fuss cooking instructions to nourish and invest in the one body you have so that you have what it takes to do the things you love.
"the herborium" blends are also packaged in a biodegradable Natureflex bag. This is our way of doing good for our planet. More about this in our FAQs.
