What a neat web-site. I notice that they have essential oils of lavendar, lemon, etc. What do you do with these? I am thinking I might use one for room fragrance. Or are they for cooking? Anybody know?

Essential oils are generally for aromatherapy, soaps, etc. Many can be dangerous if consumed, so read the label carefully.

Odd site. I guess I'm picky, but they are selling prepared food (repackaged spices) without identifying themselves or location. How do I know if they are operating from a properly licensed and approved facility, and not someone's spare room? :?:

I contacted them and asked those questions. Haven't heard back yet.

Here's the answer I got to the questions.


Hi Mare,

To answer your questions:
What size containers are the gourmet sea salts?
All our sea salts come packaged in convenient wide flip-topped filled 3 oz. containers. Net weight varies by product. Containers are reusable and recyclable. -For example, the Hawaiian Red Alaea Sea Salt weighs 4 ounces while the Australian Murray River Pink Flake Sea Salt weighs 2 ounces, both in the same size container, due to moisture and mineral content.
How do I know you are operating from a properly licensed and approved facility, and not someone's spare room? where are you located?
We are an internet only business based in San Francisco, with a warehouse in Alameda. We are a fully licensed business, as are all our suppliers and growers, and vend at local certified farmers markets in San Francisco and Marin.


Hope this helps!
