Local Wild Medicinals
Asheville-based Red Moon Herbs is the oldest and largest herbal medicine company in the southeast focusing on fresh, wild, local ingredients. Here is a list of Red Moon's medicinals. Those that do not grow wild in the Asheville area are starred. Note that "wild" does not necessarily mean "native." Catnip and motherwort, for example, are naturalized but not native. For more information, see "Isn't this about native foods?" on our FAQ page.
