Herbal Planet, established in 1991, has been McDonough's premier natural products store. Offering a wide variety of high quality natural supplements, herbs, and vitamins as well as natural foods, teas, and coffees at affordable prices. Herbal Planet's goal is to listen carefully to the customers needs, educate them, provide them with preventative measures, and the necessary tools to promote a healthier lifestyle.
Throughout history, natural and herbal remedies have been used to promote health and well-being. Susan Harden is the store owner and she started her business in a 500 square foot facility in Stockbridge. Over the years, her business has more than quadrupled in size to its current 4000 sq. foot location on North Hwy 42 in McDonough. With a modest beginning, Susan put all earnings back into the business to ensure a debt free establishment. Ms. Harden attributes her success to her knowledge of natural health; a knowledge she has imparted onto her well-trained staff. The mission of Herbal Planet is to encourage employees to grow and change with the company by educating themselves in the historical use of natural supplements, and by becoming familiar with cutting-edge methods and techniques of healthful living.
Upon entering Herbal Planet, the customers are greeted and welcomed into a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. The staff is trained to provide one-on-one customer support and to educate consumers to make informed decisions about their own personal health. They work together with local medical doctors and chiropractors to satisfy each customers' health and nutritional needs. Herbal Planet has doctors as customers and friends. They enjoy referring the customers and receiving such referrals from healthcare professionals. The store offers a variety of herbs, vitamins, supplements, homeopathics, natural foods, natural pet remedies, essential oils, bath and body items, books, sports nutrition and gift items.
In 2003, Herbal Planet added its newest addition, Tea Thyme Cafe. The Cafe offers a variety of drink items to satisfy any thirst. All natural fruit smoothies, fraps, wheatgrass shots, organic coffee and tea.
