Herbs for your water

I was surprised by the number of comments I received on facebook from folks who saw my blog show up there. Some wanted to know where one gets hold these herbs here. I have to confess, i've tended to just bring a little back with me whenever I've had the chance (rarely!) However, I did search online, using the botanical names of these herbs. Since I haven't actually bought from any of these places, and the packaging is unfamiliar, I can't vouch for any of these online outlets, but here's what I found for Karingali (Acacia Catechu), I got a hit on a site called Chinese Herbs Direct . I'm not sure if it'll turn out to be what we use in India, but may go ahead and order just to see if it is.
