Organic herbs and spices have a wide array of applications which include cooking, medical, and in some instances even spiritual use. Here at SavvyHomemade many are used in a wide range of health, beauty and cooking recipes.
As always when looking for natural ingredients such as herbs, spices and herbal teas I recommend Mountain Rose. Every one of their organic natural herbs, botanicals and spices will definitely be picked from the very best harvests.
Sure you can find cheaper sources online and in local stores, but often you will be disappointed with all the substandard “commercially available” herbs. Often they have been on store shelves and in inventories for many months and sometimes years. One thing we are sure of is that Mountain Rose dried flowers or herbs will not let you down.
As with most products you can also shop on Amazon, but make sure you buy from good quality suppliers like Frontier or Simply Organic. If you are in the UK you can buy herbs on AmazonUK, I would try Abbey Botanicals or Just Ingredients.
