Our vision & philosophy

The healing power of plants and the health-promoting effects of natural food supplements are at the center of our work. We are pursuing the goal of restoring medicinal plants to the status they deserve in society. They help us to increase our well-being and our zest for life. We believe that a balanced lifestyle is the basis of a healthy and happy life. To achieve this balance we pursue oneholistic,responsible andnatural Approach.

We want to give people back the belief in their own abilities and the activation of their self-healing powers with the help of nature. Medicinal plants can teach us a lot, together we will find a suitable way for you to use these powers.

Our products

Our open tea drugs and plant extracts are of the highest quality. The majority of our raw materials meet the quality standards of the Austrian or European Pharmacopoeia and come from controlled organic cultivation. To meet our high standards and ensure consistent quality, our entire range is handcrafted.

All our products are handmade with ❤️ in Vienna.

The effectiveness of our products is based on the scientific knowledge of co-effectors - the knowledge that the entire plant has a more effective effect than the pure substance in its isolated state. The products from HERBARIUM OFFICINALE always consist of the entire tea drug with all its active plant components, never from an isolated part of the plant or from only isolated active ingredients.

Free from plastic, we fill our products in high-quality amber glass for the sake of the substance.

Mag. Richard Lanczmann

As a co-founder of Herbarium Officinale, Richard's priority from the very beginning was the personal responsibility of every person for their own well-being and health. Seeking, finding and maintaining equilibrium in all areas of life is the admittedly challenging but most important task for him. Regular exercise, meditation, a healthy diet and trust in the healing powers of plants characterize Richard's personal path to well-being and health.

Mag. Sophie Huber

is co-founder of Herbarium Officinale. She is convinced that the revival of the old knowledge about medicinal herbs is of great value for society and for health-conscious, self-responsible people. The aim is by no means to replace conventional medicine and industrial pharmaceutical products, but to supplement them in a meaningful way.
