Bulk Herb Store: Review, Giveaway and Discount!

I love finding family-owned companies with great products and excellent service. Bulk Herb Store is one of those companies! I'm more than a little excited to be able to tell you about them once again, and even better -- offer a discount code and give away DVDs to two winners!

Bulk Herb Store has excellent prices on high-quality herbs. I've ordered from them in the past and was very pleased with their service. After waiting and saving, when I finally placed my order I was delighted when it arrived quickly.

red rapberry leaf

The pound and half-pound bags of dried herbs were even larger than I expected, and the box smelled delightfully of peppermint, red raspberry leaf, alfalfa, nettles... Mmmmmm! :) One of the perks of ordering these herbs in bulk is that you get so much for so little! When I looked at the huge (gallon-plus sized!) bag of dried red raspberry leaf herb I had just purchased for $6.60 I could only imagine the mounds of fresh leaves I would have needed to harvest in order to produce that amount. (Yes, red raspberry leaf is probably my favorite herb. Forgive me for going on about it!)

A great resource on their website is the Cooking With Herbs page. You'll find lists of different types of foods -- things like stir-frys, vegetables, rice dishes, soups, fish dishes -- with a list of herbs or seasonings that accent those foods and some of their health benefits. Cooking with herbs is flavorful, fun, and good for you, too!

There is also an articles section with a list of natural-health-related articles, along with a few recipes. All of the recipes use chocolate! I'm planning to try the Dark Chocolate Coconut Balls, for sure! :)

I love to drink herbal pregnancy tea, and believe that it has helped support me in healthy pregnancies. A couple years ago when I was expecting my third child, I had run out of pregnancy tea and decided to order from Bulk Herb Store. (I've already blogged about the herbs I purchased from them, the recipe I used to mix up my tea!) I drank lots of this tea -- more than I had in my previous two pregnancies -- and was blessed with a surprisingly easy 85-minute labor and birth. I'm not saying that herbal pregnancy tea will guarantee anything -- but the herbs are known to support a healthy pregnancy and delivery, and I'll definitely be drinking lots if we're blessed with future pregnancies! :)

If you're interested in herbal teas but not sure where to start, Bulk Herb Store sells some great pre-mixed blends. Mama's Milk Tea supports breastfeeding, Rise and Shine Tea provides a morning boost, Stress Buster Tea helps you wind down, and Sleep Tight Tea will put you out! Well, it's not quite that potent. But you get the idea. ;)

And now for the really good part: You can leave a comment for a chance to win the DVD Making Herbs Simple!

Bulk Herb Store sent me two copies of Making Herbs Simple, a DVD all about getting started recognizing, harvesting, and using some of the herbs that are most likely growing right in your back yard!

About Making Herbs Simple:

You can watch a trailer for Making Herbs Simple here. (There are links on that page for other videos and podcasts as well; take a look!)

I watched the entire DVD with my boys and we all loved it! It's got beautiful close-ups of various herbs and lots of tips sprinkled in here and there. If you've ever wanted to know more about using fresh herbs or how to prepare/use poultices and tinctures, this DVD makes it simple and attainable! If you've already done lots with herbs, then it might be a little too basic. I learned from the DVD and it definitely inspired me even though I already knew some of the information presented. :)

I will draw two winners from all the comments left on this entry. This giveaway is only open for two days -- Wednesday and Thursday, March 4th and 5th, 2008. Please include a way for me to contact you in your comment so I can notify the winners!

Bulk Herb Store is also offering a 3-day-only 10% discount for anyone here who wishes to place an order. This discount is good Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week (March 4, 5, and 6, 2008). Use this code at checkout: TAMR09

P.S. Bulk Herb Store also sells just a couple models of the Berkey water filters, so if you read my reviews (here and here) of the Berkey but missed the 10% discounts in the past, here's one more chance to get one at a discounted price!

P.P.S. Check out their blog for even more articles and updates on herb and health-related topics!

Full Disclosure: I jumped on the opportunity to blog about Bulk Herb Store and help promote their great products with a discount and giveaway for you, my readers. In return, Bulk Herb Store sent me a copy of Making Herbs Simple and a tin of Eden Salve. :)

Sounds good...

Please enter me in, too! I'd love to win this and learn what might be growing around our house! We found muscadines growing last year down by the creek and I was able to make quite a bit of very yummy muscadine juice. And we had a tree fall in front of our house that had honeybees in it, so we were able to get a couple quarts of honey out of it on a cold 7 degree morning in January so that we wouldn't get stung. I love being able to be thrifty and use what God has provided all around us. Thanks for doing giveaways!

I love my Spearamint Tea

I love bulk herbs!
Growing up my mother and grandmother always made iced 'Mint Tea' for every picnic and family get together yet drinking the 'mint' teas (peppermint) at the store weren't the same. I tried spearmint tea, and its mild minty flavor is the one I remember. Even my picky husband thought it was yummy and I didn't have to add any sugar. I am growing a large herb garden this year, and this giveaway sounds perfect.

Oh, I would love to win one of those DVDs!!! I've been thinking of buying one for a while now. I love the Bulk Herb Store! After you posted about your pregnancy tea, I bought herbs from them and made my own, for my last pregnancy. I've used red rasp. leaf tea near the end of all 3 of my pregnancies, but I definitely liked the "homemade" version the best. And I seriously give the red rasp. a lot of credit for my easy labors. My first was only 5 1/2 hours (hospital) and my other two were about 2 hours each (homebirths). It's a wonderful herb!! :)

For the "herb" ignorant~

I was just saying the other day that I have ALL these great herbs growing in our backyard and I have NO IDEA what to do with them, how to harvest them, nor even what some of them *are*. Ha!

So this DVD sounds perfect! And thanks for the link as well to the "Cooking with Herbs" page ~ this will definitely come in handy this summer!!

I have wanted to purchase from Bulk Herbs for a while now, but just have not been able to. I added to my mint garden with my first try at an herb garden last year with Lemon Balm, Fever Few, and some garlic, this year I am expanding.

I found your site from someone linking to the recipes, and I'm bookmarking! Lots of great info, not just recipes! :-)
I've been wanting to know more about herbs - I really hope there's good info about pregnancy in the DVD, since that's something I worry about. That and which essential oils are safe during pregnancy... I would think some of it is overlapping, but it's hard. There's so much to learn!
