Hilde Hemmes Born from a background and knowledge in herbs, Hilde Hemmes is the creative and inspirational energy behind her family-owned company, Herbal Supplies Pty Ltd. As Australia's leading therapeutic herbal tea manufacturer, Hilde and her family take pride in being independent, competitive, flexible and fully-integrated, and their commitment to herbalism is still as strong as it was when the company was founded in 1985. Over the years Hilde has collected many rare, out-of-print books on herbs and their uses, and has discovered many valuable recipes and ancient formulae that may otherwise have been forgotten. She made a significant contribution to the Australian herbal industry as a pioneer of Swedish Bitters (a multi-purpose tonic) and the herb Epilobium parviflorum (also known as ProstaLobium®) for the relief of prostate enlargement. Hilde Hemmes’ products are tested to guarantee that only authentic species (that hold the medicinal properties) are used so that the world-wide problem of substitution does not occur. The raw materials are tested to ensure that identity, purity, potency and microbiological standards are met. Any products that do not pass testing are rejected and discarded.
