*WINNERS: Best Specialist Store, Scottish Independent Retail Awards 2023*

We’ve been sourcing the best healthy foods, supplements and skincare from all over the globe since 1904 and are gearing up for our 120th anniversary next year!  We’re almost certainly/probably the oldest health food store in the world and one of Edinburgh's oldest independent businesses. 

Small we may be but all of our staff’s advice and knowledge is big.  Because we’re independent, knowledgeable and innovative we’re not in the business of just selling, we are about building long-term trusting relationships with our public. 

We’re in the business of providing the best advice and showcasing the best products from vitamins, essential oils, skincare, and other intriguing and healthy specialities.



In 2019 we came up with our special LoyalTree Card which gives you the choice of either saving £5 when the card is full or planting a native species tree in the Highlands with our chosen charity, Trees For Life.

Our customers normally plant trees at the rate of about 40 a month which is quite inspiring. Every tree is 'The Right Tree In The Right Place' unlike other tree-planting schemes.
