About Us

Spring Wind Herbs, Inc. was founded by Andrew Ellis in 1992 as a small herb shop for the benefit of local practitioners in El Cerrito, California. We began to sell bulk herbs to practitioners in 1993 and at about the same time started our line of ointments, cremes, salves and liniments.

Over the years, we have searched out the highest grade bulk herbs. Spring Wind long ago brought the issue of the use of incorrect species of herbs to the forefront and was the first company to introduce a lot-based testing system for a comprehensive list of pesticide residues. In 2005, Spring Wind began to locate sources of organic herbs and now carries a large and growing selection of USDA NOP Certified Organic herbs.

As practitioners, our principles have been unchanging. We procure herbs and produce products we would use for our families and provide the kind of friendly and helpful service we would expect from our friends.
