Herbs & flowers:
Herbs and flowers provide many health benefits for your hamster. Some contain a wide range of vitamins, some are good for the digestive system and some contribute to a strong immune system.
Some examples: Calendula is antibacterial, cornflower and chamomile are good for indigestion, echinecea leaves strengthens the immune system and dandelion leaves are high in vitamin A, B and C.
In nature, hamsters spend a lot of their time foraging. Providing them with forage such as dried leaves, herbs, flowers and seeds will provide them with a lot of enrichment. They will spend a lot of time gathering it for their stash and the variety of different smells and texture will also provide them with an enriching and diverse environment in their cage.
How to store herbs, treats & flowers:
In order to avoid products expiring before they should, all products should be stored in airtight containers and the containers should be kept out of direct sunlight.
We recommend putting all dried herbs, leaves and flowers, vegetables in the freezer for 48 hours before use. Because our products are grown without pesticides, the chance of beetles, moths, weevils and other small insects in the products is slightly higher. Freezing the products will get rid of any possible contamination.
