Organic and non-treated herbs, spices and teas, although great for the environment and for our health, are often susceptible to infestation even with proper storage and preventative measures.
At Bulk Herb Store, we take measures to ensure that our herbs and teas are kept fresh and pest-free, including preventative steps such as using natural repellents and placing traps. In the event of potential infestation, we flash-freeze batches immediately upon receipt of the product. In addition, Bulk Herb Store uses good hygiene practices to ensure a healthy, clean and pest-free environment for our Organic and Wildcrafted herbs and spices.
Even with these preventative measures, there is a possibility of infestation after purchase, especially in flowers and seeds. With proper storage practices this can often be prevented, but in the case of a minor infestation, we suggest flash-freezing the herb overnight at 10-30 degrees.
It is our policy to make sure that all herbs leaving the BHS warehouse are pest-free. However, in the event that you find one of the herbs or herbal mixes you purchased is infested, please contact us within 60 days of purchase for a full refund or replacement, and we will credit you back for the item(s)-- no questions asked.
