I purchase acai berries, herbal teas, and oils for the strength of my immune system. The staff is very receptive and knowledgeable in answering and verifying information. There prices are unbeatable for the superior quality provided. I continue to shop there and recommend them to friends as far away as the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia. My tip would be to do a little research on the Internet in making a well informed decision on products needed.

It's easy to miss Blue Nile--an unassuming little storefront in the basement floor of a townhouse building by Howard University. But if you're looking for unusual bulk dried herbs, spices, tea and beauty supplies this is *the* place to go in Washington, DC.

Blue Nile's shelves are jam-packed with jars of popular herbs for cooking, tea, herbal medicine, candle-making, and beauty treatments. They have several varieties of echinacea, shea and cocoa butter, and tea mixes for common health ailments. Their store is usually filled with people from the neighborhood.

Whole Foods, Yes Organic and the Takoma Park Co-op also carry bulk herbs and spices in their spacious locations across the District, but Blue Nile's prices are usually considerably cheaper, their staff more knowledgable and their selection is larger than all those stores combined.

I discovered Blue Nile when I was looking unsuccessfully for elderberries and astragalus at a Whole Foods store. A clerk suggested I shop at Blue Nile instead because "That's where I get supplies for my homemade hair conditioners, girl. If you can't pronouce it, they've got it!"

PROS: inexpensive prices, good selection
CONS: parking can be difficult on weekends
