We all want to be healthy and to have a radiant well-being. But in order to do so, we have to take care of our bodies both inside and out. Most people will agree that in order to achieve greater health and well-being, one has to choose the highest quality of ingredients made without anything artificial. Our bodies are part of nature afterall, and it’s only expected that we put in as much natural ingredients as possible in order to maintain inner and outer balance. One way to do so is with natural herbs and seeds. When I refer to herbs, I’m referring to herbs that have proven track records of providing certain health benefits. Not all herbs are suitable or safe for everyone but there are herbs that we eat and use on a daily basis like thyme, basil, neem, rosemary, and so forth. Herbs can be used in food, for medical purposes, and for aromatic purposes. Herbs can be incredibly potent and efficient so it’s good to know which ones work for which purposes.
Being in the health industry for many years, I’ve learned a lot about herbs and their therapeutic purposes. What I love most about natural herbs is their infinite uses. Natural herbs have been used for many centuries for their therapeutic and culinary purposes and most of them do not have harmful side effects like synthetic products would. But when it comes to using herbs and seeds for bodycare, who do you turn to and who makes the best products? Well, most natural skincare companies use some type of herbs or plants in their products because of their therapeutic purposes as well as for fragrance. The best way to know what you’re buying is to read the ingredients, labels, and do some research on the companies yourself.
When a friend mentioned to me a company called Mountain Rose Herbs (www.mountainroseherbs.com) and their commitment to procuring only natural ingredients like herbs for their company, I was intrigued. I found out that they sell more organic herbs, spices, and botanicals than most companies in the United States. But they are more than just an herb store company. They are firm believers in the power of environmental stewardship, “Good Trade” practices which is similar to Fair Trade but helps profit the farmers even more so, sourcing organically and responsibly in the US and overseas, and providing excellent, highest-quality products to people all over the world. Mountain Rose Herbs is a company dedicated in giving you natural and organic products to help you achieve the greatest of health and well-being and their selection of products are sure to please anyone.
Currently, Moutain Rose Herbs carry an assortment of natural products such as herbs, spices, seeds, tea, essential oils, diffusers, aroma sprays, natural cosmetics, bath and bodycare, herbal oils, salves, tinctures, and extracts, as well as home products such as candles and incense, and environmentally-safe bottles and packaging. It seems that they are truly a “one-stop” shopping site for all things natural, holistic, and environmental! If you’re looking for a natural way of living rather than relying on synthetics, you have to check out Mountain Rose Herbs. With so many natural products to choose from, it’ll probably become your favorite company. And when I say natural, I’m referring to ingredients in their original form. If you’re buying an herb, spice, or seed, you need to make sure they are grown in a clean and natural environment, untouched by synthetic materials. This ensures you’re getting the purest form and highest quality in order to benefit your health.
Mountain Rose Herbs began humbly over 20 years ago by an herbalist who was a pioneer of herbal medicine in her day. Her love and knowledge of herbs and plants help start the company which has now grown into a company known worldwide. Mountain Rose Herbs still procures their ingredients responsibly and ethically and their products are used in many venues across the nation. They have an extensive line of herbs, seeds, spices, oils, etc and you can also find products from other companies such as Aubrey Organics and Oregon Soap Company. They also have a flagship store in Oregon where you can find all of their products – so if you’re ever in Eugene, Oregon, be sure to stop by!
Mountain Rose was interested in sending me some of their products to try and review. The products that I tried were their Rose Facial Wash and their Chai Tea. The Rose Facial Wash smells delightfully light and soothing with essence of rose and citrus lingering in the senses. The Rose Facial Wash is made up of only natural ingredients including Organic Rose Flower Water, Organic Aloe Vera, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Calendula Extract, and their proprietary blend of essential oils and made without any preservatives, parabens, sulfates and all those yucky stuff. Because what goes on your skin will likely go into your skin and it’s always best to use the most natural and beneficial of products on your skin. I also enjoyed a nice cup of their Oregon Chai tea which contains organic Ginger root, organic Cinnamon, organic Darjeeling Tea, organic Cardamom, organic Cloves, organic Nutmeg, and organic Vanilla bean. It was incredibly tasty, soothing, and unique and without any added sugar. I don’t usually drink Chai tea, but there was something quite pure and effectual about their Chai tea. I felt energized and relaxed at the same time and the cinnamon and cloves really shine.
I felt honored trying Mountain Rose Herbs products and they would like to offer 1 LUCKY reader of Happymomblogger the chance to win their Rose Facial Cleanser and Oregon Chai Tea. So how do you win this incredible prize? Read below to find out!
