The oldest apothecary in the Portland metro area, specializing in over 400+ bulk organic herbs and teas as well as many unique gift items. Dragon Herbarium has been owned and operated by the Keith family for over 40 years and is a destination when visiting and shopping in Portland, Oregon.
The store was first opened as Love's Herbarium in the mid 1970's by Richard Love. Shortly after opening, Bob Keith bought the business from Love and changed the name to Dragon Herbarium. Since that time, Bob has retired and his daughter stepped into his shoes managing the shop and online store.
You can find references to the Dragon Herbarium in such writings as Dr. Andrew Weil's book titled 'Spontaneous Healing' and in three other articles published by The Business Journal - Small Business Insights (7/14/2000 Portland Edition), the The Small Business Opportunities Online Magazine, and the Willamette Week (10/28/2009 Cover Story) about legal psychoactive plants.
