I prefer to purchase from Buhner's recommended sources.
I buy Woodland Essence Hawthorn...but didn't reorder it in time, so I went to the local health food store and bought a bottle - a local company.
I knew right away it wasn't the same. It didn't have the same taste...not even close.
The Hawthorn has a kind of fruity/flowery taste to it.
I believe both WE and Sage Apothecary (two of Buhner's recommended sources) use whole herb (not extracts)
I know Nature's Way has been around for awhile...but I don't know the quality.
