Mountain Rose Herbs, The Spice House and The Great American Spice Co. sell spices online. The stores also carry herbs, culinary salts, special blends and oils.
Mountain Rose Herbs, certified organic and practicing Fair for Life standards, offers only organic, fair trade and ethically wild harvested spices and herbs. The company has a large selection of spices and herbs from agrimony to violet leaves. In addition, it sells seasoning blends, such as a salt-free garam masala blend, mesquite seasoning and a pumpkin pie spice mix. Whole pound spice, seasoning, herb and tea orders of five pounds or more receive bulk discounts starting at 10 percent.
The Spice House, founded in 1957, has five stores as well as an online marketplace. The company not only has a wide-ranging selection of spices and herbs, some spices are available by variety as well. For example, its chili pepper selection includes the more common ground cayenne and paprika, as well as the hard-to-find ground New Mexican green chili, the bhut jolokia ghost pepper and the Turkish Aleppo pepper. Bulk discounts are available via phone orders only.
The Great American Spice Co. carries a varied selection of common and rare spices and herbs, many available either ground, chipped or whole. For instance, although whole rosemary is common, the company also sells ground rosemary leaves. Along with its spices and herbs, other culinary options include flavored powders, dehydrated vegetables and citrus peel granules. Packaging ranges from “stove,” a typical size spice jar that usually holds less than 5 ounces, to discounted 10-pound bulk boxes.
