About Organic - Frequently Asked Questions
What does Organic mean?
The organic method of growing food means that no artificial pesticides or chemicals are used in the production process. Many modern farms use all sorts of chemicals in their production processes to help kill bugs etc. Not only are the bugs killed but the food contains many of these highly toxic substances. Simply by eating this contaminated food you are basically putting yourself at risk to some degree.
As well as the pesticides used to kill bugs, non-organic farming methods normally use far more fertilizers and tend not to treat the soil with much care. It seems that the use of pesticides and excessive fertilizers go hand-in-hand. It is a mindset - one that is not healthy for the planet or the consumers of the crops.

Are your herbs organic?
Yes, we use only organic herbs in our products. A very small number of ingredients are wild harvested from safe, naturally maintained areas. These are harvested from replenishable sources and confirmed to be free of pesticides and farmed in a way to ensure they have no detrimental effect upon the environment. It does not make sense to consume health products which are not organic. How can you get well if you are consuming toxic chemicals. Organic is the only way to go where health is concerned!
Are organic products much more expensive?
Some companies do overcharge for their organic products. They think that because it is organic then they can charge much more. This is not necessary. Many more organic farms and growers are being created and it is now possible to source the raw ingredients at just a little more expense than non-organic products. This means we can pass on these savings to you.
