Vanilla

Description

Vanilla is sourced from a Mexican species of orchid, Vanilla planifolia. Each orchid must be hand-pollinated, a labor-intensive task. As such, Vanilla is the second most expensive spice by weight, after Saffron. Vanilla has historically been considered an aromatic stimulant that provides support for the nervous system.* It also was used traditionally as an aphrodisiac, but today Vanilla is primarily used for its aroma and flavor.*

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
