Mountain Rose Herbs

About Mountain Rose Herbs

People, plants, and planet are more important than profit. This seemingly simple principle is the bedrock on which Mountain Rose Herbs is built, the foundational philosophy that has guided us every day for 33 years and counting. In these unprecedented times, when communities around the world are buffeted on all sides by global warming and pandemic, this statement continues to be our guiding light. It is the heart of what we do and the core of why we advocate so fiercely for sustainable organic agriculture, native plants, and fair trade.

At the end of the day, sustainable quality of life hinges delicately on how we caretake our planet: how we tend to our watersheds; how we nurture our soils, water, and air; how we grow and distribute the food we eat and the botanicals we love. This is why we are unwaveringly committed to rigorous quality testing on all our products, why we only use packaging that is environmentally friendly, why we invest in our properties with solar energy, satellite-controlled water conservation systems, and bioswales to filter runoff water from our roofs and pavement. It is why we worked hard to become Oregon’s first Zero Waste Facility, diverting more than 90% of all non-hazardous waste from landfills and incineration.

“People, plants, and planet before profit” is also the foundation of our relationship with our partner farmers throughout the Pacific Northwest, and with our global farm partners through Fair for Life, a rigorous certification standard for fair trade that requires transparency and equity throughout the entire supply chain and provides funding to hard-hit farming communities in order to support life changing innovations in organic agriculture, health, and education. As one of our partner farmers in India said so perfectly—Fair for Life means we are all committed together to a system that is “fair for farmers, fair for [the] environment, and fair for customers.”

At Mountain Rose Herbs, we work from the fundamental belief that it is our honor and our responsibility to strive for excellence as human beings and as a company: to live by ethical principles and to set ourselves always on a path of growth and learning in our ever-changing world. We also know that we are best positioned to do this when we have our feet well rooted in the ancient traditions that humans have turned to for millennia: in the profoundly healing beauty of nature and the natural gifts of the botanical world.

Great place to find raw materials for making tinctures, herbal concoctions, medicinals or wellness. The staff is very knowledgeable and they have a really great variety of literature and inventory in addition to promoting sustainability and community development.

Mountain Rose is the quintessential place for all things organic, herbal, incense, and tea related. There is so much to see and to choose from. If you are making your own preparations or looking for essential oils, I'm sure they have what you are looking for. They have stuff for pets, personal care, shaving, and even tooth powder. Aromatherapy items are available with a broad selection. If you like tea, this is a great place to look for new mixtures. Most everything is local or sourced from fair trade/organic places.

I ordered online and my items arrived within 72 hours. My order was well packed, included informational material, and was precise. The items were fresh, well packaged, and had clear, readable labels. I shopped around and feel I got high quality items at an economical price point. I would recommend to others and will return in the future to make more purchases.

My daughter and I stopped in here for some mushroom powder and a couple essential oils. She has a compromised Immune System, so whenever she comes in to town, this place is a must. Their inventory here is amazing. Quite the stock and selection for many of your ailments. The knowledge base expressed behind the counter was thorough and reassuring, and oh so kind. The place has such a cool vibe going on too, that it's very easy to get lost in all the colors, shapes, containers, glass and light. We were there for almost an hour! The displays are very appealing and appropriate for the building. So much wood... We were able to find everything that we needed, and the price point was very fair for the quality of product! Amazing place! We enjoyed our time there

The products are great, over priced but great. I recently order a tincture and paid $10.00 for shipping for a 2 oz bottle. It took them a week to even get it shipped. All in all it took 1 day short of 2 weeks to receive the tincture. Nothing else was purchased yet it was shipping in a huge box and 10 bucks shipping is outrageous especially for 2 week wait time.
