Organic herbs are only one of the many different types of organic products that can be used at home or in your business. Organic products are based on plants that are grown organically. This means that no synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides were used on the plants or the land on which the plants were grown. Organic growing also helps to promote a diversity of plants, rather than the monoculture farming practices often seen on farms run by agricultural conglomerates. Because of the diversity and lack of chemicals introduced into the environment, it offers a more sustainable growing option than factory farming provides. For all these reasons, organic products, such as organic herbs, organic spices, organic essential oils , organic bath products, organic teas and even organic salt, make for healthier, toxin-free options for products you use around the home or at your place of business.
These glorious herbs form the basis of a gourmet cook’s pantry. Seasoning staples such as spices like basil, cinnamon, curry powders, spice blends such as Cajun Spice, Fajita Seasoning, and so many more all provide a richer flavor when they start with herbs grown organically. You can even find organically produced salt, which will find its way into numerous recipes from your kitchen.
Herbs can also be drunk in the form of teas. Teas not only taste delicious, but many contain little to no caffeine. You can enjoy the flavors of chai tea, chamomile tea, lemon or orange spice teas, and you can even create your own specialty tea blends with your favorite herbs and spices.
In addition, organic herbs are used to create the essential oils used in aromatherapy. Aromatherapy uses extracted oils from organically grown herbs to create these pure and concentrated oils. The essential oil is placed in a diffuser, which applies heat to the oil in order to release the intoxicating scent.
One of the best ways to utilize organic herbs is as an ingredient used in bath products. There is nothing more wonderful than filling a cheesecloth drawstring bag with a luxurious herbal bath blend, and then letting the bag soak in the bath water, to release the fragrance not only in the moist air but also onto your skin.
Restaurants and stores that create and sell their own herbal products like soaps find that using herbs grown organically is an attractive selling point that helps increase business. Organic herbs can be purchased in bulk for businesses that require them as ingredients or for sale in bulk to the public.
