About Us - Best Herb Store in Arizona

Leilah with Scottsdale Mayor Herb Drinkwater in 1993

Our Story

The Herb Stop was founded in 1992 by Leilah, Swiss Pharma-Assistant and Master Herbalist. Starting in a small 300 square foot store in Arizona, our herb store quickly expanded into a larger location to accommodate in-depth Herb Stop Certification Classes and an apprenticeship program. In 2002, Natalie Hajdu, Master Herbalist, joined Leilah, who is currently the President of The Herb Stop.

Our modest herb store continued growing with an emphasis placed on providing the public with the highest quality herbal products. Leilah and Natalie created a superior line of over 2500 herbal products. Today, The Herb Stop’s manufacturing and retail location is situated in the mountainous region of Arizona.

Our Belief

The Herb Stop insists that all ingredients must come from reliable and ethical sources. Leilah and Natalie believe that quality and high standards are essential to create life-enhancing herbal products that are unmatched. 

Our Mission Statement
