Since 1984 the Taos Herb Company has manufactured hundreds of products from organic, sustainably wildcrafted superior quality herbs to help you explore natural healing options.
From 1975 to 1993, Dr. Robert Hawley was a Taos Pathologist and Cardiologist. Dr. Hawley was a strong patient advocate. Also a storyteller, Dr. Hawley treasured the Taoseños (people who live in Taos) traditions of storytelling and folk healing and upheld these traditions as critical to patient well-being. While some doctors would have been skeptical about the use of herbal medicine and curanderismo (a form of folk traditional healing that includes herbal medicine, healing rituals, and spiritualism common in Hispanic-American communities, particularly in the southwestern United States), he saw it as a critical component to wellness and healing.
Dr. Hawley, and his son Rob took a 2-week field trip with seminal herbal expert, Michael Moore. After the exposure to herbs with Michael Moore, Rob became fascinated and began buying books and spending all his extra time in the forest around Taos and Southern Colorado picking plants and keying them out (identifying plants through a systematic procedure that looks at all of the parts: stems, seeds, and roots to identify the species). Rob pressed plant specimens in a big hard-bound book -- his improvised plant press and herbarium. A few months after that field trip, it was Dr. Hawley's idea to start an herb store. Rob, his sister Tina and husband Fritz opened a little 400 square foot herb store at their first location on Camino de la Placita. "We started out as purists, selling only bulk herbs. We didn't have any extracts or body care products," Rob Hawley recalls.
With Michael Moore's instruction and a lot of book studying, Tina and Rob learned how to extract herbs. Rob's wife, Julie, jumped into the business as well. A few of the first extractions created by Tina and Rob were Ginseng, Osha, and Motherwort. Now Taos Herb Company manufactures hundreds of products from organic and sustainably wildcrafted herbs, and offers custom-blended extracts, compounds, essential oils, aromatherapy, traditional ceremonial herbs, smudge sticks, and Yerba Hair Care products.

Excellent product with great aroma
Stays fragrant and is easy to apply. Thicker texture that commercial products which means it stays on and dries fast. Highly recommended
I liked this well enough to reorder it when we ran out. We use it around the apartment and carry it when we go out. It actually smells good and we all have to do whatever we can.
A Healthy Habbit
With the exception of after shave and laundry detergent I prefer no scent. This Hand Sanitizer only has a sent while it is wet. This product drys fast even faster with a fan. I eat with my hands a lot sandwiches, chips and snack foods. I do not detect any taste of the hand cleaner on the foods I eat with my hands. I wash my hands with soap and water repair my food and use the hand sanitizer just before I eat. In this time of pandemic the outside of condiment bottles food wrappers could have bacteria were not use to having so that is one reason for my use of hand sanitizer. Another great reason is the Aleo Vera protects against chapping with all of the hand washing that takes place in this pandemic.
This product was excellent ~ I am enjoying it
Great sanitizer. Use it all the time. And it's from New Mexico. Can't get any better.
