I realize this was touched on by the thread about Mary Jane's Farm magazine, but after seeing some more recent posts in other threads recommending bulkherbstore.com, thought I should bring it up as well.
The Bulk Herb Store is owned by Shoshanna Easling, the adult daughter of Michael and Debi Pearl, the authors of To Train Up a Child, which advocates hitting and pinching and pulling the hair of very young infants, as well as beating 6-month-olds with PVC plumbing line. I'm sure many of you are aware of the well-publicized deaths of several children whose parents "disciplined" them according to the Pearls' methods. Ms. Easling remains involved with her parents "ministry," No Greater Joy, and features health-related articles by her mother, Debi Pearl, on The Bulk Herb Store's website.
From what I understand, The Bulk Herb Store is a somewhat popular source for RRL and galactagogue teas among MDC-type mamas, but given its relationship with the Pearls, it seems that many of us would prefer to take our business elsewhere and would rather not see this company's advertisements in the NFL or AP publications we read.
I felt sick at the idea that I could very easily have provided some unknowing support to No Greater Joy ministries, had I just needed some dried lavender or some loose tea, and thought I would pass the word on to other moms who might feel the same.
