Best Herb sites to buy herbs
« on: December 05, 2008, 01:04:18 PM »
HB--I couldn't really find a specific thread on different sites to buy herbs.  If you need to move this please do, if I missed the thread please forgive me.

I am wanting to know where everyone buys their herbs and what the quality is like.   
I normally buy from Mountain Rose or the Bulk Herb Store but with prices as they are these days I have been comparing and found one site that I wondered if anyone has used.  It is www.herbal.com   and I am wondering if anyone has used it and if you are satisfied with the quality.   They are way cheaper than a lot of the other places and it says the herbs are "free of pesticides and herbicides, and are not fumigated or irradiated."   
Anybody have any recommendations???
Thanks

I found the San Fransciso Herb Co. from the thread on sea salt.  Here is their site: www.sfherb.com

It's a good source, as they have:
  • baking ingredients- good prices on grey sea salt!
  • herbs/botanicals- basically, stuff for teas and tinctures
  • essential oils
  • potpourri supplies and scent oils
  • spice blends
  • premixed teas
  • culinary herbs and spices
I had read (at Bulk Herb Store or NGJ) that most herbs aren't favored by pests anyway, so pesticides are generally not a problem.

I've always ordered my herbs from Bulk Herb Store and loved everything.  I like that they are family owned and operated and no junk.  :D  I also order from More Than Alive and loved everything from them too.  They also are family owned, no junk, and sometimes the carry herbs that Bulk Herb Store doesn't have.  I think the prices from both are pretty decent.

I buy what I can from www.bulkherbstore.com or www.morethanalive.com. I like the family operaton/ christian people, and as I live in the same state I usually get it the day after I order!
But if I need an unusual herb that I can't find at either place I order from Monterey Bay Spice Company  http://www.herbco.com/.
 They also have cooking spices and tea making supplies. As well as amber bottles for tincture making, in various sizes. They do carry a large variety and you can buy as low as 1/4 lb at a time. They ship from CA.

I always research for the best prices and free or low-cost shipping/handling; as well as places which will accept mail orders and payment by US Postal Money Order.

The best and cheapest place, that I have ever seen, to buy Bulk Herbs is:
HerbalCom.  On top of being the cheapest, they even have FREE SHIPPING, and the shipping is always very fast.

They have almost every kind of herb, and I have been purchasing from them for years.
You can also order by mail and pay by Postal Money Order, which is the only way I purchase anything, at any time, for security reasons.
