Organic Cats Claw Bark
Need a small amount of herbs for a project? We've got you covered! All of our herbs are either wildcrafted, from local farmers or purchased through organic suppliers that have ethical standards online.
We offer this herb in 1oz only at this time (this is by weight) and we package it in a reusable muslin bag, so if you are infusing the herbs, you can use the bag as a strainer when done.
