Alchemy & Herbs is a little herb shop located in downtown Exeter, NH. The front door to our building is located right on Water Street (the main shopping street), but our shop is tucked in a cozy spot, down two sets of stairs, where it's peaceful and our windows overlook the river.
We stock over 100 different organic bulk dried herbs, spices, and teas, as well as our own loose leaf herbal tea blends. We also offer packages of loose leaf and bagged herbal tea blends handmade by other small companies, and have teapots, kettles, and infusers for all your tea needs.
We carry a variety of soap, balms, salves, and wellness items, and we have a small refill area for essential oils, organic carrier oils, clays and salts, and Dr. Bronner's soap. Bring in your own containers to fill, or purchase one from us.
Alchemy & Herbs was founded by Lisa Dolloff. Lisa began using herbs for her own wellness in the late 1990's, until she had a dream about practicing herbalism that she knew she had to follow. She trained in an intensive 9-month herbalist program in Silver City, NM in 2000, where she finished with a dream to open an herb shop "someday".
She spent the next ten years following different paths of studying clinical aromatherapy, reiki, chemistry, and geology, until officially founding her first love, Wunder Budder in 2010.
Lisa focused on skincare and Wunder Budder while finding her way back into herbalism through attending conferences, workshops, and online trainings until one moment, during a particularly intense acupuncture session, she knew it was finally "someday".
A series of events, lots of help and support from friends, and one giant leap of faith later, Alchemy & Herbs opened its door in Nov. 2019.
