Mountain Rose Herbs

Mountain Rose Herbs. A herbs, health and harmony c

I take a lot of Chinese herbs, and I'd been a little leery of the ones coming from China, not because of contaminants (like with the heparin scandal) but because with its pollution, even organic products, I feel, can be compromised. Organic does not mean free of heavy metals (e.g., for our CSA, I asked our farmer to test the soil--it was clean). Some suppliers have even admitted their products may have "a little" pollution in them and were trying to convince me that "a little" heavy metals wouldn't hurt me. Eeek!

So in my search for an American sourced ginseng, I found Mountain Rose herbs. They grow their herbs organically and keep 'em fresh. In their own words:

Organic Herbal Products All of the products processed and offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are handled, analyzed and supervised by a full time quality control department. Every aspect of all our products, from the procurement, and the receiving, to the processing and packaging, is done in accordance to strict quality control and organic handling procedures.

The products we offer you are guaranteed fresh, fragrant and colorful, and unlike traditional suppliers of herbal products who keep their merchandise stored in warehouses for several years, Mountain Rose Herbs will never sell or stock products that are more than a few months from harvest (except for seasonal items). This in itself guarantees you a fresh, and effective botanical preparation. Since 1987 Mountain Rose Herbs has placed a priority on our general health and well-being, and in this time we have completely removed all conventionally grown materials from our product line entirely.

I tried the ginseng, it was great in soup, so I'm exploring more for my spice, herb, and seeds needs. I put a little banner up on the side so you'll always know where to go!
