Herbs are plants with aromatic and other properties that are used in cooking, medicine, spirituality and more. They are therefore separated into different categories, such as culinary herbs, medical herbs, spiritual herbs etc.. The term “herb” is an abbreviation of “herbaceous plant”. In botany, a herbaceous plant is a vascular plant with no visible woody stems. There are various herbal products, such as herbal medicine (there are many herbal remedies available), herbal cosmetics and herbal essential oils, that are used in many different ways. It is important to note that herbs are different from spices. The latter are dried roots, seeds and other parts of plants. Herbs are the leafy green or flowering parts of a plant.

If you are wondering whether someone can send dried herbs in the mail, the answer is yes. What you should know is that dried herbs are considered food items, so the same rules for shipping food apply.
Are you interested in shipping rosemary, mint, Egyptian herbs, mountain rose herbs or any other herb abroad? Then you should take the herb import rules and regulations of the country you are shipping to. The rules are not necessarily strict when it comes to shipping within the European Union. However, our customers should be aware of the herb import regulations when shipping from the US or any non-EU country. The same goes for our European customers who want to send herbs overseas. The restrictions can be related to the amount, the type, the form and the quality of the herbs that are being shipped. Since these regulations are subject to change, we recommend you to contact the Import and Customs authorities of the country you are planning to ship to. Please keep in mind that, when the herbs are not in the original form (e.g. herbal essential oils, herbal medicine), different rules may apply. Be honest and clear about the type of products you want to use. Information regarding herb import can be found online as well.
