Wildcrafted vs. Organic. Which is better?


 

A common question we get is if our products are organic? and if not, why not? While you may feel organic relates to a product being in it's purest and most desirable state, you may be surprised to learn it isn’t necessarily so.

Before there was “Certified Organic”, herbs and plants that were gathered free of herbicides, pesticides, detergents and other harmful chemicals were referred to as “Wild-Crafted”, or as we like to refer to it, "Ital". Wild Crafted or Ital herbs are not farmed or sprayed with any kind of pesticide and are far from being close to polluted areas including farms that spray their crops. They are wild, native and organic by their own nature and retain the positive attributes of plants grown in their normal habitat. Plants grown in the wild are in a perfectly crafted environment that they were created to be in. This includes having to compete with other plants to thrive and also 'imperfect' growing conditions. '

Certified Organic herbs and plants are usually grown under ideal conditions on a farm and produced according to standards which translate into no harmful pesticides, fertilizers or GMO plants (genetically modified organisms) to enhance their growth. Yes, they are healthy, but because they are grown under the best conditions with human intervention and not necessarily in their natural habitat, they may not retain all the attributes of their wild crafted counterpart.

Both Wild Crafted and Certified Organic products are free of harmful chemical additives and are much better and safer than their commercial grade counterparts. However, when we get wildcrafted herbs we are getting herbs that are in their natural state and retain all the positive attributes that are lost when we as humans begin to intervene. 

Our Wildcrafted Sea Moss comes straight from the pristine oceans off the coast of Saint Lucia and retains all the attributes that make Sea Moss so special. 

Beware of companies claiming their Sea moss is wildcrafted and organic because there is no way to verify anything that comes from the ocean is organic... But we'll save that for another blog post. 

Much love!

    Peace&Blessings. Just returned from KSA, several MENA & West African venues. Priest Kailish had emailed me a number. He wanted to talk. I just tried to give him a ring but couldn’t connect. I note you have now have his products available and also the seamoss. Kindly update me on being a distribution hub for Priest Kailish products from St. Lucia to our PA warehouse. We own our warehouse and are interested in distributing products into our target North East and South East USA markets. We have network of retail outlets through which we will be distributing. I also have private investors that I can bring to the table to provide equity investment to enable Priest Kailish to scale up growing, processing, packaging capabilities to bring product pricing down in order to benefit from economies of scale. Have the products been approved by FDA? It appears Canada has now allowed importation. Do send a more direct email and cell for you an Priest.
    Peace&Blessings,
