    At MRH’s website I love their monthly specials, it’s a great way to stock up through the year, so check regularly. I also love their glycerine, and I love how they take the time to educate their customers rather than just pushing products! The only thing that gets me sometimes is the shipping prices, ugh! But I figure it is a small price to pay for such good service! :)

    I love Mountain Rose Herbs! I’ve been reading everything I could get my hands on, and am inspired! It’s not often you find a company that lines up so beautifully with your own philosophies. ‘Liking’ you on fb, as soon as I’m done here. My catalog came in the mail yesterday, & it is awesome. This order could take me a while to compose (while I sort ‘needs’ from wants’)!

    I love basil, all kinds. I am just getting to know tulsi in the form of an extract. This would be a welcome gift. Mountain Rose Herbs? Some things I love… that they carry all kinds of containers, not just bulk herbs AND clays and carrier oils/fats.
