By Dr. Amy Jo Howard, Staff Naturopathic Doctor

“It smells so good in here,” is one of the first things that people say upon entering herbs etc. Walking around the store, you will find people smelling essential oils, checking in for a natural health consultation or massage, or even “shaking” on the Body Vibe machine. For people who are new to the store, a few reactions are common: they are surprised to find us in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan; impressed that we carry such a variety of natural products; and/or relieved that they are able to find something that will help them feel better.

herbs etc carries the full line of Nature's Sunshine products.

Having been in business in Mt. Pleasant for over 20 years, herbs etc offers a comprehensive array of products and services for those seeking to live healthier and happier lives. As a retail store, we provide the complete product line of Nature’s Sunshine supplements, as well as essential oils, homeopathic remedies, blood type products, ear candles, books, orgonite, herbal teas, and much more.

herbs etc staffs experienced consultants and provides services and therapies, including natural health consultations, iridology, live blood cell analysis, and even more non-invasive assessments to help you determine your specific health imbalances and create individualized programs to restore your health using natural remedies.

If you are looking to cleanse, herbs etc is one of the only facilities in the area to offer colon hydrotherapy. This is a gentle and effective way to cleanse the intestinal tract and is extremely beneficial for digestive concerns, constipation, skin conditions, general fatigue, and more.

If you are looking for a massage, our licensed massage therapists offer numerous bodywork therapies, such as general relaxation, therapeutic, couples, or hot stone massage in addition to reflexology, raindrop therapy, craniosacral, lymphatic drain, myofascial release, and more.

The Therapy Room is designed for you to find relaxation using the infrared sauna or magnetic therapy bed, doing a detoxing foot soak, receiving color or sound therapy, or yes, “shaking” on the Body Vibe machine (shaking for 10 minutes is equivalent to jogging 4 miles!).

Republic of Tea and Light of Day teas can also be found at herbs etc.
