    Thank you for such great giveaway opportunities. I have gone to Mountain Rose Herb’s website and ordered from them many times. What I like about their website is its very pleasing design, ease of use, being able to receive discounts if enrolled in one of several listed herbalism courses, the monthly specials, and the fact that you can still get a paper catalog- I love their generosity in including wonderful recipes throughout. Their products come just as beautifully pachkaged as shown and are always of high quality.

    great giveaways!!

  76. 76

    Have heard of using Birch medicinally and love Mountain Rose Herbs products! I had no idea that you could tap the sap… read one of the other post that it tasted similar to root beer… just might have to try that!
    Thanks for the givaways… gives folks a chance to learn and try something new as well :)

  77. 77

    I LOVE Mountain Rose Herbs website and their stuff also! I really like how they give you a full description of the products, and sometimes give you some history and educational information. I especially like how they explain about the different kinds of oil qualities. I feel that this is one place I can tell my friends about over and over without having to worry if their essential oils are pure, or if their bulk herbs are guaranteed organic. I also love their recycled glass jars. They are absolutely wonderful for the bath salts and other bath and body products we make and give away as gifts.

    Wow what a great givaway… thank you!!!
