How Pure Are The Herbs You Buy? Healing With Herbs, Part 4


HOW PURE ARE THE HERBS YOU BUY?

Are the herb products on the shelves in stores really what they say they are?  Have they been sprayed with pesticides?

Unfortunately, you have no way of knowing.

Vague, even incorrect labeling is more common than it should be.  herbs, imported from other parts of the world often have contaminants added.  government labeling requirements are lax, and terms such as natural or even organic have no real meaning.  The government does have regulations for safe limits on the residues of some pesticides, and proper cleansing does remove most toxic materials.

Many herbalists will tell you the only sure way to know that your herbs are clean and free of poisons is to grow them yourself.
