Superior quality has always been the goal at Blue Moon Apothecary. To fulfill customers' expectations for high quality products, Blue Moon continues to upgrade its quality control facilities and processes. With our modern equipment and professional personnel, we have made a commitment to continued excellence in product quality. 


Blue Moon Apothecary is dedicated to providing the freshest and purest botanicals. We strive to offer only those herbs and spices with verified quality. All of our products emerge from the combined efforts of everyone at Blue Moon Apothecary from our talented purchasers, to master lab technicians and machine operators, to our service-oriented, knowledgeable sales staff. 

Purchasing Expertise 

Our quality begins with the knowledge and experience of our raw material suppliers from around the world. We purchase herbs and spices from locally and import them from over 20 countries. Direct purchasing ensures that the integrity of our products is consistent and the finest quality available. Our buyers are botanical and herb experts who work closely with our quality control staff, before and after the products arrive, to continually monitor our raw materials. We audit all suppliers yearly to assure they meet our GMP requirements. 

Controlled Processing 

Our blending, and packaging facilities give us total control in providing the correct particle size for our tinctures and teas (see in descriptions for each of plant parts and product forms). Thorough inspection and cleaning during the tincture making process insures that the finished product will meet our stringent specifications for quality and potency. At each stage of production, our quality control staff inspects and approves each product before it is allowed to proceed to the next process. 

Laboratory Analysis 

Our staff continuously monitors product quality to ensure customer safety and satisfaction. Retained samples from all shipments are thoroughly tested and compared to our extensive reference library of dried herbs and botanicals to verify authenticity. All lot samples are kept for five years and can be traced for verification. 

Blue Moon Apothecary utilizes not only our in-house laboratory, but also independent labs and consultants to guarantee our analyses are complete. Testing includes organoleptic analysis for aroma, color, flavor, and texture. Physical testing involves moisture, volatile oil content, heavy metals, microbiology, thin layer chromatography, and other tests specific to each herb.
