Come the first week of June, the Arnica is ready to be harvested. Alfalfa follows closely after, and Meadowsweet isn’t ready to be harvested until the end of June. Calendula and Borage follow as well, and Lavender only begins blooming at the very end of June.
Each herb is harvested by hand one flower at a time. They are weighed and then put on drying racks for their drying duration. This can take just a few days, for Arnica or Meadowsweet, or up to a full week for flowers like Calendula. Once dried, the flowers are bagged, weighed, and taken to our Research & Development team for inspection.
