Frontier Natural Products, Organic Cut & Sifted Echinacea Purpurea Herb, 16 oz (453 g)6 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Not only does this echinacea purpurea herb make delicious tea, but also it's packed with health benefits. Rich in vitamins minerals, amino acids, tannins, antioxidants, flavonoids, it's great for treating colds, flu, bronchitis, tonsillitis, streptococcus infections, septicemia, urinary tract infections, syphilis, typhoid, malaria, diphtheria, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, gout, rheumatism, migraines, dizziness, asthma, gingivitis, canker sores and gum disease, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, as well as other conditions. Echinacea is a powerful immunostimulant and anti-inflammatory agent boosting the immune system, fighting infection, attacking yeast and fungi directly, facilitating healing, reducing inflammation, relieving pain and swelling of the mucous membranes, soothing and healing dry and damaged skin. It can also be applied topically and is known for reducing skin irritation and inflammation, healing wounds, abscesses, sores, insect bites, scars, bruises, cuts, boils, burns and rashes. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone wanting to boost their immune system and improve their overall health and well-being.
i know the taste of the Echinacea root but little did i know that the whole herb tastes so good,grasy and rich with no need to add any other herb for flavor.i use about 5g for 12oz of hot water as infusion,do not boil it because it will lose its flavor,thats in contrast to the Echinacea root.after all that said take into consideration that if you look for the medicinal properties of Echinacea this is not the product for you,unless your intention is to mix it with other species of Echinacea exactly like the American natives that pased on the knowledge to the Western medicine did.the medicinal properties are hidden mainly in the Echinacea Angustifolia (root) species (antibacterial,anti-inflammatory,upper breathing relief,flu & cold support etc etc)...this one is really one of the most amazing herb i know,cuts the days of the flu or cold in half.but as i said earlier,you could always take the purpurea as an add on to enhance the properties of the stronger species,or use the Purpurea by itself as a preventative measure on a daily use. ...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews
