We work closely with scientists and botanists from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), who run DNA barcoding on our herbs for reliable genetic authentication. The benefit of this identification step is to confirm the exact species of our raw materials, especially for our foraged plants.
RBGE have also granted us access to their extensive library, Scotland's national reference collection for specialist botanical and horticultural resources.
RBGE is one of the world's leading scientific botanic gardens, holding knowledge gained over centuries that the world needs today.
All known life depends on plants and fungi. The Garden’s mission is to explore, conserve and explain the world of plants for a better future.
Biodiversity loss and climate change are threatening thousands of plants with extinction. Through cutting edge science, conservation and education,
RBGE is helping to save them, taking positive action for plants and people around the world from local communities in Scotland to over 40 countries overseas.
