The Price difference between the Raw dried herbs & the Herbal Powder is due to the duties and VAT involved on the Herbal Powders. We have been asked this question again & again that why there is so much difference between the two. We get the Herbs cleaned and washed (if necessary) before getting them powdered. We do not purchase the herbal powders that are readily available. We get the herbs powdered at our own facilities in India, (which is clean and upto european & world standard) So that we are sure of the quality of product that we sell.
