About us

Fettle Botanic Supply & Counsel, once known as The Herb Shoppe,  started in Portland Oregon over 14 years ago by board certified Naturopathic physician Dr. JJ Pursell.  With three principals in mind JJ has developed a stellar line of herbal products offered in a variety of formats to meet a wide range of constitutions.  These three principals are as follow.

First, to offer the most vital herbal medicine available. Our job at Fettle is to ensure that every product and bulk herb originates from a place of extreme integrity and that you, our customer, is truly receiving the best there is to offer in the western world of botanical medicine.

Our second driving force is to provide as many resources and references as possible. Fettle’s motto is that everyone should leave with something. This doesn’t necessary mean a purchased product (although that is good for business!)  It could also be a pearl of information to use at a future date. Sometimes a discussion with customers leads to the staff making a professional referral or reference to ensure everyone is getting the information they need or the appropriate direction to turn. Whatever the case may be, Fettle enjoys sharing and exchanging with customers to provide them the best service possible.

The last principle that Fettle was founded on is community. This stems from our work to engage each person that visits and extends to offering internships, classes, free lectures and events. Providing the community a place to learn more about herbs and herbal medicine and providing a safe place to ask simple health questions is our passion.  

We started in Portland and our heart is still here but we do not currently have a retail store in Portland, Oregon.  We are working to expand our community and offerings to offer the highest quality herbal medicine to more people. Our web fulfillment and production facility is still in Portland, Oregon with Dr. JJ  (our heart) continuing to develop amazing Fettle products.    The Fettle Botanic flagship store is now located in Bend Oregon, run by herbalist Katelyn Dexter.  Katelyn is doing great things in Bend and really growing community there.   Look four our e-commerce sight to evolve over the next few months to offer a focused line of Fettle Botanic products and updated herbal information for all.
