  1. Cool I am so happy that you received your order. I love purchasing things through the mail because I research what I want and have to know I made a good purchase. I have been wanting to use the Hibiscus leaves to do a tea rinse that TexturePlayground raves about. I will probably try infusing the Rosemary with oil, I read a lot of blogs and I saw someone do this but I had been thinking about if this could be done or not because I had never seen it done and I saw this was a big difference between the price of the herbs and the oil. If I could do a rinse and then use the oil for nightly massages. I would also compare the rinse of the Hibiscus Leaf Tea to the Hibiscus Powder to do rinses. I wonder if there is difference.

  2. What would I do with the herbs? I honestly don't know what I would do with them but for sure they would get used down to the bag. I'd do my research..including picking your brain for ideas and suggestions and I'd go from there. So there..sign me up, I'm game!

  3. I love getting stuff in the mail - I act all surprised like I had forgotten I ordered it and everything - lol

    I really need to re-visit Mountain Rose Herbs - I've been ordering from Texas Natural Supply - http://www.texasnaturalsupply.com/.

    But I would love to compare the Mountain Rose Herbs to what I have purchased in the past :o) I would use the Rosemary and Hibiscus for my hair tea/hair spritz and I haven't tried Hibiscus flower powder - I would like to try that in a pomade mixed with shea butter and put some in a shampoo bar mixture :o)

  4. Hi there! Oh someone is going to be a happy camper. I adore Mountain Rose Herbs supreme organic products and the fabulous company. I have many of their fine herbs, including the Hibiscus flower and powder you offer for your giveaway. In fact, I featured Hibiscus this past July as our Herb of the Month and created Flower Power Hibiscus Smoothie. Delicious. Aren't herbs fun! :-) Please exempt me from the drawing, as I already have these products. Best of luck to all who participate. Have a great weekend. :-)

  5. Hey there, I'm a long time follower and also subscribe via google reader because I'm a blog addict. lol

    If I win, I'll add the Hisbisscus Flower, which I've been dying to try, and Rosemary Leaf to some other herbs I currently have such as Nettle, Horsetail, Chamomile, and others and try an herbal rinse since I keep reading so much about them. I've previously used my stash of herbs to create growth oils but I never used them consistently but often gave them away as gifts to friends. I'm addicted to castor oil so I'm also planning to add the herbs to create an infused castor oil, which I plan to use two times as week as I currently do already.

    As far as the hibiscus powder, I plan to add it to my daily moisturizing spritz and my monthly henna treatment.

    I wishing myself goodluck. LOL
