Come by! 

We love sharing our knowledge and natural remedies with the community. We cherish this community, and want to offer support with our many services. Our compassionate staff members’ expertise is as diverse as the herbs we offer, with knowledge spanning East Asian medicine, Ayurveda, Western herbalism, doula training, and plant spirit healing.

What Makes Us Special

All of the herbal liquid extracts we produce are available in our pharmacy, making us the most diverse bulk tincture stop in the nation! What makes us unique is Five Flavors Herbs is the only herbal pharmacy in the US providing bulk tincture direct to consumers.

We also have an extensive line of proprietary formulas, written by the founders of Five Flavors Herbs, Ben Zappin L.Ac. and Dr. Ingrid Bauer. These thoughtful formulas cover a wide range of imbalances of different body systems and are well loved by our staff and clientele. 

If you are a practitioner who would like to utilize our pharmacy service to fulfill custom formulas for your patients, sign up for an account here! We have a highly-trained herbal pharmacy team to custom compound for our practitioners. You can submit custom formulas, prescribe our proprietary formulas, and recommend your patients to order supplements from our highly-curated retail selection.

"I was so excited to learn that Five Flavors Herbs was opening their shop locally, because I was looking forward to creating custom formulas for my patients using both Western and Chinese Herbs. This has definitely been a wonderful part of my experience with Five Flavors, but it has gone way beyond that. Dedication to quality, community, great personalized care taken with service to practitioners, creative and effective formulas, are just a few of the jewels that Five Flavors offers! I am so grateful that they are here."
