    I purchase both the Certified organic and Organically grown to see if there is a difference. Well, there is! The organically grown is so fresh and smells beautiful. If you close your eyes, you would think you are were standing in the middle of a rose garden. The color is so vibrant compared to the C/O. I'm buying your organically grown herbs from now on!
