About the brand:
Our main idea is to work around the potent herbs without any dilution or modifications. We want the herbs to speak and display their efficiency in full form. Hence, the name Speaking Herbs.
Yes, there is. The two base lines, one below S and the other on top H is called ‘maat’. It was popular in the Egyptian civilization. The pharaohs used to either carry it in their hands or stand on it. The ‘maat’ depicted justice, truth, and the balance on which the universe was created. So the ‘maat’ on which S (Speaking) is standing denotes that whatever we speak (and claim as a brand) is true to its core and the one on top of H (Herbs, i.e. our products) means all our products are made in such a way that the balance is maintained.
The idea is very simple. We want to provide people with the exact product that they intend to buy, absolutely pure, potent, and without any ultra-processing, nasty chemicals or compromises. If you buy a sweet almond oil from Speaking Herbs, you get a bottle of sweet almond oil devoid of mineral oils, palm oil, fragrances and preservatives.
Speaking Herbs was founded in early 2018 by Amis and Tanaya. While pursuing their M.tech (Biotechnology) they found that many chemicals with potential toxicity that they used in their labs to carry out experiments were actually on the labels of the products that they used in their everyday lives. This led to the idea to bring out everyday essentials devoid of any chemicals or toxic ingredients.
About the ingredients:
Yes, our ingredients are used as it is without any processing to make the products. Our carrier oils are all food grade. So, the next time you are making a salad, add a spoonful of avocado oil to it and get all the nutrients that your heart and skin is going to love.
At Speaking Herbs, we ethically source our ingredients from local farmers practising organic and traditional farming methods.
We want consumers to know exactly what they are buying. Let’s take beard oil for example, when you buy a pre-formulated beard oil you can see the ingredients on the list but one can’t be sure of how much is actually present in the product. You will be shocked to know that many almond oil present in the market doesn’t even contain 3% almond oil in it and the most surprising part is that it is mentioned on the label, but then how many of us actually read it. Argan oil enriching hair oil may contain less than 1% argan oil. So we are not formulating our products. Instead, we chose the best single herb ingredients for a particular category, let’s say beard oil in this case. We provide the ingredients with a recipe book which will tell you how to blend them. So this way you make your own potion and you know exactly what is in it.
‘Blend As You Like’ is the only open source project in the world of consumer products. All you have to do is let us know how you are blending our ingredients for high performing results and we will deliver it to the world in your name.
About packaging and shipping:
All our products come in glass bottles. Along with the environment, plastics also impact the products. The products that come with a dropper we have made sure that even the droppers are made of glass. But in the case of the hydrosols, the packaging has a little plastic. We are trying to look for alternatives but not being able to find any. If you can think of any alternative, you can email your suggestions to [email protected]
We believe in clean and responsible shipping. We ship absolutely plastic free. The product goes into cardboard boxes which in turn is packed in a thin cotton bag. We also use craft paper tape wherever required. As an introductory offer to promote a clean lifestyle, we are giving away free cotton totes to all our users.
