THINGS TO CONSIDER
It is perfectly legal to ship herbs within EU countries and you do not need a health certificate for importing them. However, food safety authorities may prohibit the shipment of herbs containing salmonella or other infectious agents and dangerous pesticides.
Although shipping after Brexit is more complicated, there are generally no restrictions for sending or importing herbs to the UK if they are dried and packaged properly. However, some herbs contain additives or flavourings that may be allowed in the country of origin but are not approved in the UK. One example is the herb known as kava-kava. This product and any food containing it may not be shipped to the UK. This is because of concerns regarding its toxic effect on the liver.
There are normally no restrictions imposed by the CBP if you are sending herbs to the USA for personal use. However, some herbs may be subject to restrictions or duties that are not imposed elsewhere. It is very important that you check if there are any restrictions on the herbs you are sending to the USA. Additionally, it is your responsibility to check what paperwork is needed for shipping to or from the USA. You will have to declare each item you are shipping in your package for customs clearance.
