For all our work, we are but a channel for something far greater. The true stars of this art and science are the incredible tonic herbs themselves. Tonic herbs come from all over the world, including China, the Himalayas, Korea, Japan, Central Asia, Oceania, Southeast Asia, Siberia, the Middle East, Europe, Scandinavia, Africa, North America and South America. Tonic herbs come from an amazing range of environments: from the highest mountains in the world, to the harshest deserts; from beautiful mountain forests to tropical rainforests; from wetlands, lakes and seas, and even from the oceans. One factor must always be kept in mind — the source of an herb is of the utmost importance. A poor source will provide poor material, and you cannot weave gold from straw.
