The Herbal Dispensary at Maryland University of Integrative Health is a unique and valuable resource of the Herbal Medicine academic programs. The dispensary provides the tools and space for students to get hands-on experience creating, formulating, and compounding herbal preparations. The dispensary is also a source of high-quality, custom-compounded formulations produced for clients of the MUIH Natural Care Center and clients of MUIH alumni.
The dispensary provides herbal teas, powders, and liquid extracts that are custom-compounded to the unique specifications of practitioners who have tailored these products to meet the individual needs of their clients. The dispensary also carries professional grade, pre-packaged supplements that have been evaluated for quality and efficacy by MUIH faculty and staff.
To receive products from the Herbal Dispensary, clients must present a completed prescription from a registered herbal practitioner. Please note that Herbal Dispensary staff cannot diagnose, treat, or make recommendations to the public regarding herbs.
Placing Orders and Refills
