Organic Herbs and Spices

Herbs and spices are probably best known for their culinary properties: the distinctive flavors and colors that they impart to our cooking. What may not be as well known are the significant health benefits that they also possess.  This should not be surprising since herbs and spices are derived from plants, which contain a variety of healing substances – often found in high concentrations in the seeds, oils, and other parts that make up herbs and spices.

While herbs and spices are readily available in our stores and markets, either fresh or dried and powdered, their value can vary considerably depending on where they are sourced from. The widespread use of pesticides in most parts of the world has poisoned our soil and water and severely compromised our health. It is therefore essential that we buy herbs, spices, and other food products that are certified as organic and/or chemical-free to safeguard our health.

MOUNTAIN ROSE HERBS: What Makes Them Special?

Our recommended source for high quality culinary and medicinal herbs and spices is Mountain Rose, an Oregon-based company that is committed to providing organically grown and chemically free products. What particularly impresses us about this company is its wholehearted commitment to principles of environmental sustainability and fair trade, which are reflected in its organizational, operational, and business practices.

Mountain Rose offers, wherever possible, certified organic herbs, spices, and botanicals. These are harvested and processed without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, herbicides, GMOs, and other synthetic agents, and are free from irradiation and chemical sterilization. They are certified through Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO), which is fully accredited with the USDA National Organic Program.

In the event that organically certified products are not available, materials that are cultivated without chemicals or are sustainably harvested in the wild are offered in their place. In all cases, the botanical materials are thoroughly analyzed in the company’s own laboratories and tested to ensure that they are free of pesticides and chemical residues.

Mountain Rose’s herbal materials are primarily sourced from certified organic American farms. Where material is not available in the U.S., they are obtained from organic farmers in other regions of the world with whom they have long standing relationships.
