We are quickly losing many of our world's aromatic plants through overharvesting and mismanagement. If we demand and purchase sustainable products, the industry will listen and the wheels of commerce will follow suit.

Some are collected from the ground and others from cultivated stock, ensuring wild populations remain undisturbed. Healthy communities of harvesters are also a good indication of sustainability. You will hear more about them in the listing descriptions.
