Our company History


PO Box 2018 Ranchos De Taos NM 87557

Interested in shamanism and healing plants, owner Phillip Hambly set out to create an online botanical company offering rare seeds, sacred plants, and herbs. Since 1993 River’s Source Botanicals has been selling retail and wholesale botanicals at affordable prices to customers around the globe.
Located in the high-country of Taos, New Mexico, our warehouse includes a storage facility, herb milling area, packaging space, and mail order office where we ship our products. Seasonally, River's Source Botanicals hires between 5 and 20 employees to help wildcraft herbs.

RSB, owner, Phillip Hambly, was the person, who, in 1993, coined the common name for Trichocereus peruvianus cacti - The Peruvian Torch Cactus, but says if he hadn't done it then someone else would have because that's the name the plant was saying it wanted to be called.
A common name for Trichocereus bridgesii is used for the Bolivian Torch Cactus, likely as a spin-off from the common name for T. peruvianus, and it's very close medicinal concentration properties. But it is not the same plant.
The name Achuma (wa-su-ma) is another name in competition, but traditional Achuma was the name of its relative Trichocereus pachanoi. But whatever it's called ...that doesn't change what it really is and as William Shakespeare, said, ``A rose is a rose and a rose by any other name is still a rose``.


About Our Products

• Plants are grown under prime conditions.
• Only the healthiest specimens are shipped to you.
• We test all our products for quality.
• Seeds are checked periodically for good germination.
• Most seeds and dried herbs are untreated, either organically grown or wild harvested; however, some live plants are treated with Neem oil, an organic insecticide to control pests.
• Live cacti may at times have some skin scab. This is normal, especially with plants rooted from cuttings and Ariocarpus fissuratus plants. After some years of T.L.C. the scab will heal.
• We try to include in the product text when the material was harvested.
“I just wanted to let you folks know how grateful I am for your products!”.
