In today's world where money seems to be more important than moral fiber,
it is tempting to feel helpless as one person out of millions.
Facing the challenge of trying to understanding what each and every one of us
can do to help make things better, I believe that any real change in the world
has to start with the actions of each individual.
Although not glamorous or heroic, I'd like to reaffirm my commitment to be
accountable for my actions - both personally and in business. Our attempt to hold
ethical high ground is constantly under challenge by temptations masked with
excuses like everyone else does it, if I don't do it someone else will, and
it's only business. On and on goes the list of thoughts and rationalizations
that challenge our attempts to do the right thing. The great challenge is to listen
to our own conscience at every crossroad and give it the power it deserves.
Here at Blue Mountain Herbs we are doing that.

About our business
For years we have provided our local community with a wide variety of nutritional
supplements and health care products. In that time we have been a strong proponent of
your right to choose the remedy of your choice without undue regulation.
That personal freedom is under constant challenge by drug companies, insurance companies
and the FDA. Several years ago we went on-line and became more visible and have
seen the pressure continually increase in the form of intimidating contact from the FDA
and new Oregon legislation challenging our personal freedoms to buy and sell certain products.
There's a lot of ways to fight regulation and we have chosen the most obvious and
often overlooked method - conducting our business in such a manner as to not
require regulation. We do what we say we will do and sell products that are what
we say they are and nothing more or nothing less. When you decide to try a product
from us you can count on us to deliver the quality and potency we advertise.
It's as simple as that.
We are fortunate to still have the right to choose among a variety of health care options
and with that right comes the responsibility to educate and inform ourselves.
Throughout this site we will provide educational information and links about our products.
You should assume that all information we provide has not been evaluated by the
Food and Drug Administration and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or
prevent any disease.
When you do make an educated decision to purchase a product from us, you can count on it
being exactly what we say it is at a fair price. Our rural location has allowed us to
maintain low overhead which we continue to pass on to you with affordable prices
for a variety of high quality herbs and supplements. We intend to keep on doing what
we do best around here and that is doing what we say we will do each and every time.
