Sir did you know that in EU all herbs and herbalogists are banned except three plants. You will be able to buy any herb as now but only in Apotechary.

Herbs and herbal extracts were not banned, but they do need the same control and licenses like before.

The only difference is that some of preparations (like various common herbal teas) are classified as supplements, not drugs (cough syrup with ivy extract for example is still classified as drug), and that makes them cheaper, which is an upside if you ask me. Supplements can be sold anywhere, drugs, of course, only in pharmacies. What's new or strange in that?

Another upside is that various local fake healers can’t advertise the weed they mowed in their back garden as cure for cancer anymore. Actual herbalists can continue their work like before and must satisfy the same sanitary requirements like before.

The great news are actual pharmacologists taking even more interest in healing properties of plants lately.

So any preparation with herbal extracts you buy in a pharmacy (literally half of shelves in our pharmacies are filled with herbal-based products) is certified, hygienic and safe.

How about you take a look in your local pharmacy before running around panicking?
