Business Update

Hello and thank you for being amazing and supporting us!

I wanted to be sure to update our subscribers of some changes we recently made, and give a little explanation.

As you might notice, the prices on our herb boxes have gone up by $3. This little jump will help us keep our business in the green and afford to keep bringing this amazing service to you month after month. Now, as a customer I hate it when prices go up too, but I had the tough decision of either raising the price *just a little bit* or decreasing the nice offerings that we have in the herb box like soaps, essential oils, and nice bottles to put your product in. These little things make a big difference in the herb box presentation and I want you all to be happy with what you get!

We also bumped up the price of the 6 month and yearly boxes and made those a recurring subscription instead of a one time deal. These are STILL less expensive than if you subscribe monthly so it saves you some money and you are sure not to miss a box.

We added an additional product! In the survey I did some people really wanted to participate in the herb boxes but couldn’t fit it into their budget. Some people were subscribed to herb boxes but felt they didn’t need the “extras” like the monthly tea blend, soaps, and essential oils. We added an option for a SMALL herb box. These will contain the same amount (usually 2-4 oz) of the “herb of the month” and the ingredients you need to make the herbal remedy of the month but will not include the monthly tea blend, or any other extras. These mini herb boxes include the PDF magazine just like the others. They are $22 for a monthly subscription and $24 for a one time box. This includes shipping.

We started a new Facebook Group separate from our Facebook Page. Because Facebook in its infinite wisdom has declared businesses have to pay in order to be seen by their subscribers who don’t interact all that often we decided to start a public Facebook group where you can come, read some great posts about herbs, ask questions about the herb of the month (no specific health questions – we can’t answer them because of legal issues involved) and share your experiences. We also have the forums on the website where you can do the same thing, but no one seems to be using them! We do get a lot of interaction on Facebook and hope this medium will help us be able to better communicate with and help you. Yes, the Facebook page will still remain active but if you would like more interaction, you can join us in our new group.

What if I am already subscribed to the monthly herb box?

Your price will not go up. Congratulations on becoming an early subscriber.

Can I change my herb box subscription to the smaller herb box option?

Yes, just e-mail me at naturalherballiving@gmail.com and we can get you sorted out.

What if I subscribed for 1 year or 6 months?

I am sorry, but since those were not recurring subscriptions, you are locked in to the higher price when you renew.

Did the PDF magazine prices go up?

Nope, we want this vast array of knowledge to be available to the public. We have to pay our authors so the price is set at $4 but I don’t see that going up any time soon.

What is going on with getting the books into print?

Our kickstarter is still open to get the PDF’s into print. Unfortunately we haven’t had the response I was hoping for. If the kickstarter does not fund I am not sure if this will be an option in the immediate future. If you would like this to happen, pre order yours through Kickstarter before August 1st! After that it is too late!

Can you ship out of the country yet?

We still are not normally shipping out of the country. Every time we try there seems to be an issue with customs or speedy delivery (or both). We ARE shipping internationally ONLY to people who pre-order through Kickstarter! Yes, shipping will cost extra (since it costs extra for us) but if you really want to get your hands on the herb boxes, this is an option for you. Again, order by August 1st and kickstarter needs to fund for us to get these boxes to you internationally.

  1. I supported your kickstarter program. Were unable to raise all the funds needed to get into print? Will you still honor the contribution gifts?

    • Yes we did and yes I will. I have sent out surveys and updates to our supporters. If you aren’t getting them check your junk mail or the e-mail address you used for kickstarter. E-mail me at naturalherballiving (at) gmail (dot) com and we can talk about it.
