If you find yourself plucking petals over whether or not you actually love Valentine’s Day, just remember that February 14th is the perfect excuse to honor that special someone. Why not reinvent the holiday by pampering your exceptionally beautiful  lover, best friend, favorite aunt, or fluffy cat with pure herbal decadence? These all natural and organic gift ideas will be well enjoyed by the one you hold dear!

In the cold winter days of 2010, our Operations Manager Jennifer Gerrity traveled to sunny India, colorful with culture and history, to visit our farms and meet with longtime suppliers who grow organic herbs around the country.  During her trip, she visited our gorgeous organic chili pepper crops, ripening in the sun!
More photos and stories from her trip coming soon…

Let Nature Design Her Own Blueprints
As most of you have heard, we have been sadly hit with another defeat by the USDA’s recent deregulation of genetically modified Alfalfa. All of us at Mountain Rose Herbs don’t like the idea of folks in funny lab suits manipulating nature’s blueprint and for these people who have always promoted that it COULD be done, we have always retorted with SHOULD it be done.
In 1999 Mountain Rose Herbs began campaigning for mandatory labeling of genetically modified food items and at that time we had partnered with a ground breaking organization called Mothers For Natural Law. Sadly they are no longer with us but we have not stopped the fight! Currently our regulatory compliance manager Bryan Burnette has begun developing a partnership with Organic Consumers Association as the Oregon representative for the national campaign for mandatory labeling of genetically modified food crops and you can be rest assured that we have forcefully voiced our opposition to the USDA’s recent deregulation of genetically modified Alfalfa. We will continue to petition all of the agencies involved in labeling law that items which contain GMO’s be labeled as such because we firmly believe that if the American public knew what they were buying, they would not buy it all.
If nobody buys the product, we win, and they lose.
We urge you all to participate in a little action yourself and our friends at the Organic Consumers Association have created an online form which can be sent directly to the USDA. We implore you all to give up 1-2 minutes of your time to address this pressing issue and we guarantee it will make you feel good all over.
