Decisions, decisions... where to aquire your herbs and oils?
I would rather go to a "brick & mortar" store, just because I like looking through jars of herbs, searching for the last item I need for a recipe. The drawback being that I am sure that when I pull those dusty jars out, I know they have been there for at least a year or more, making the herbs all but useless.
Which leads me to mail order, opening another issue of who to trust. Sure, 24-7 is a perfect way to shop, but it only takes one bad experience of losing a lot of money to make one wary.
So why don't I grow my own? Do I have space? Yes, I do now and my husband has been bugging me to grow some. Perhaps I shall now. After living at other people's places for so long, now I have room.
Luckily, I have found a few places that are trustworthy and downright lovely to deal with. I am trying more out all of the time, and if you have a favorite place please let me know.
