Compounding Herbs: Making Custom Blends

Need a Custom Herbal Tea, Tincture, or Elixir? 
All though we offer suggested blends for various symptom relief sometimes a different combination is needed for a specific person who might have an allergy or desire different herbs just because... so as of October 2015 you can order a custom blend at Breeze from our available herbs.
STEPS for Custom Compounding:

  1. Simply come in and select from the available herbs to place your order.  In the near future we will have an online compounding order form, but for now we require you to be in-store when compounding orders are placed. This offering does not allow for consultations. (Private Consultations with our herbalists will be available soon. Stay tuned!) Please know what herbs you want at the time of your order.
  2. Pay a $20 compounding deposit, select your herbs, and we will compound your order.
  3. Please allow 3 days for an herbal tea blend and up to 5 days for an herbal tincture/elixir. 

The final price will include a $5 compounding fee for teas and $10 for tinctures and the price of the herbs per gram for tea and per ml for tincture/elixirs. Please email with questions.

Why we Compound...

     Americans pride themselves on being ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to scientific and medical advances, but although the US market for botanicals and herbal medicines is rapidly growing, we're a couple of centuries behind Europe and many centuries behind Asia.
There is great benefit to be reaped from traditional herbal compounds, which once formed the basis of traditional Western medicine. Herbs and herbal products are considered botanical medicines, as opposed to pharmaceutical medicines (even though many pharmaceuticals, for example, aspirin, were originally plant-based).
     Today, single herbs are among the most widely used of all herbal products in this country, but we are way behind Europeans and Asians in utilizing the bounty of botanicals to their fullest extent, mainly due to ignorance and lack of information about the benefits (including ease of use) of herbal compounds.
     Compounding refers to the process of combining various herbs in a balanced formula to treat specific problems, or to act as a whole-body or body-system tonic. Some formulas, particularly Chinese and Ayurvedic ones, have been used for more than a thousand years - quite a testament to their effectiveness.

     Unlike "modern" medicine, however, rather than just treating symptoms or a specific disease, the aim of herbal compounding is not only to ease symptoms and "cure" the patient, but also to create a positive change and rebalance the body, so that long-lasting relief can be attained and maintained.
      There is a real art to compounding, as the Chinese and Ayurvedic herbal traditions have demonstrated for many centuries. In these traditions, compounds have been developed very methodically, starting with a careful diagnosis of the problem and identifying the underlying manifestations of the condition being treated. In clinical practice, herbalists tailor each formula to each patient.  In the near future we will be offering private consultations with our herbalist to help consumers in Southern Oregon find the right herbs, for the right symptoms and to help consumers identify underlying conditions.  However, what we can do is offer today our individual extracts for you with custom compounded orders. If you know specific herbs you would like or if you are a healer Breeze Botanicals is here to help you and your patients as we source organically grown, sustainably harvested herbs from the Rogue Valley for your compounding needs.

When it's time to place your order, please print the below forms and bring them in along with your deposit and we will get your custom compounding order started!
